Caleb Grover

Founder of Agape Counseling Center

I started working on my life when I was 17 years old. It was the year my dad divorced my mom and married another woman on the same day.  My world was wrecked. Due to my horrendous pain, I walked away from Jesus and into an anxious life.  A life filled with analyzing every word I said, panic attacks, self-loathing, addiction, relationship issues, and heartache.  I had no choice but to work on my life. I was a mess on the inside and felt utterly alone.

 

I got involved in a group in college where we simply began to tell the story of our lives. For the first time in my life, I talked about my addiction, the abuse of my parents, and their divorce.  I wrote about my story in college papers and began to work through it with teachers, mentors and eventually therapists in my 20’s and early 30’s.  Slowly, I began to experience the love that I so craved.  I learned how to be vulnerable and connect with others.  I walked away from the pain that was hindering me, and I started living in freedom rather than anxiety. 

 

Once I experienced God’s inside out redemption, everything changed.  I realized that I wanted to help others who were suffering to be able to experience the same internal transformation.  This led me to graduate school where I received a Masters of Divinity (which trained me to be a pastor) as well as a Masters of Arts in Counseling.  After Graduate school I faced a difficult decision: Do I help people as a pastor or a Christian Mental Health Counselor?  Eventually, I decided to become a Mental Health Counselor because I felt like I could directly be a part of transforming the lives of others.

 

I have been married to my wonderful wife Becky since 2002 and I have three teenage kids. In 2005, I graduated with my Masters Degree and since then have served countless clients who have struggled with anxiety, depression, marriage, affairs, complex trauma as well as a host of other things.  In 2006, I started my practice, Agape Counseling Center. I have not only treated many clients, but I have had the privilege of mentoring and supervising other counselors in the Orlando area.  In 2016, my wife Becky and I started a nonprofit organization where we have given away tens of thousands of dollars to help those who cannot afford counseling.  Recently in 2021,  I received the Distinguished Alumni Award from Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida.  This award recognizes my work and service to the Orlando community. I continued to feel God’s urging to bring my story, freedom and gifting to others as I meet with clients on a daily basis.  When I’m not in the office helping others with their mental health, I enjoy lifting weights, sports, and trading stocks.

"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life." Proverbs 13:12
