Our Story



We are a collective bunch of counselors who specialize in counseling middle and high school students, college students and young adults. 

Chances are a lot of our counselors have struggled with similar things, so we’ll strategically match you with someone who can actually relate to and understand the situations you are going through. Don’t worry. We’ll pair you up with the person who might best relate to you. 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. 

We’ve devoted our lives to helping those who might not have the support they need. This is our mission and we embrace it. We wouldn’t have it any other way. We not only believe the young adults of Grand Rapids are worth it, but that all the youth of West Michigan deserve it. Tell us your story. Let us be your community. Grow with us.
