Amanda Grace Caldwell
MA, LPC-Intern and Counselor-in-Residence
“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this, too, was a gift.” Life is a journey with ups, downs, and many crossroads. I want to walk with clients no matter the heights or depths they come across. My goal in working with clients is that they may come to find hope despite the confusion or pain they may be facing.
Amanda Grace is a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern and a graduate of Denver Seminary with a Master’s in Counseling. She has worked with adults, couples, children, and teenagers on a variety of concerns. Amanda Grace enjoys teaming up with clients to help meet their needs. She believes that God came to bind up the brokenhearted and release all of us from the darkness that can consume, so it is her goal to join with a client to find that depth of healing.
