Welcome, friend.

3rdchair is here because a supportive community for the youth of
Grand Rapids needed to exist.

Before we built 3rdchair, we asked a lot of people, ranging from high schoolers to college students to young adults, “If you were to go to counseling, what would you want it to look like?” After many great conversations, we curated a space in the Brass Works building; a place where we can chill, sit on comfy couches, play board games, drink coffee and get away from the distractions of our lives. 

We are a collective bunch of counselors who specialize in counseling middle and high school students, college students and young adults. See, all of us here have struggled in different ways too, and it’s those experiences that have lead us here to work at 3rdchair. Whatever you’re struggling with, we’ll do our best to help you get through it and be a better and stronger person for it. We pride ourselves on finding beautifully flawed people to help keep the dream going. 

Which below describes you best?

Don’t let mental blocks control you. Set yourself free. Confront your fear and turn the mental blocks into building blocks.
