Suzanne Johnson-Grace

(MSW)

About Me

I am a family and counselor licensed in Michigan with over 30 years of experience working as a counselor and therapist. I have helped clients work through a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and challenges relating to aging, caring for aging family members, and managing end-of-life issues. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and substance abuse challenges. In addition, I have developed and implemented a program to help people working through eating disorders.

My counseling style is warm , interactive, and very flexible. I believe that everyone is unique and I embrace the diversity of people that I meet and work with. My philosophy is that everyone is entitled to be treated with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and psychodynamic counseling. I firmly believe that your needs drive our dialog and treatment. My role is to help steer and navigate based on what we discover together.

Change is difficult and it can be overwhelming. It takes courage to take the steps and make changes to seek a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to embrace the change and take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you on your journey!

Written by L.. on Oct 09, 2020 after counseling with Suzanne for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Suzanne is a very good listener. She picks up on subtleties and knows when to elaborate on something. We feel that she is very fair and she knows how to give couples some space to talk to one another while also directing the conversation productively. She doesn’t pick sides, so it’s easy to trust her and feel that we are both being heard.

Suzanne is a very caring professional councilor. She listens very well and asks the right questions at the right time to help me think more clearly about my issues.

I like the way Suzanne rephrases our comments to be sure she heard what we thought we said and also how she confirms with the other partner regarding if they agree/how they feel about what the other partner said. She is really helping us to open up and talk more openly with each other, which was our goal
