I (Tammy Jackson) saw my first client in 1991 while working as an intern with Diakonos, Inc., a Christian counseling center in Independence, MO. While at Diakonos I completed half of my psychological residency (supervision for licensure) and then moved my practice to Lee’s Summit and Warrensburg, Missouri in 1993 where I finished my training for licensure under the supervision of long time Lee’s Summit psychologist, Dr. Geri Burton.
After completing my licensure in 1995 Healing Grace officially was named and friends from graduate school joined me in the practice. LeeAnn McKee, who currently works alongside me now in 2017 was one of those first friends who helped shape the vision and direction we have found as mental health providers. Over the course of these 22 years Healing Grace has been home to more than 20 different licensed providers and more than 10 counselors have received supervision for licensure through our supervisors.
We have had offices in six different locations: Lee’s Summit, Warrensburg, Harrisonville, Higginsville, Independence and Overland Park, KS. For the last 8 years we have consolidated our focus to Lee’s Summit and currently have 9 full time, licensed or provisionally licensed providers and continue to offer supervision for 4 counselors-in-training.
It is our desire to continue to serve the community for another 20+ years. We hope we are agents of Healing Grace in the lives of those who seek our care.
