Our Mission

Brave Grand Rapids exists to enable our community's adults to lead emotionally healthy, confident, and intentional lives. Our experienced counselors specialize in issues related to depression, anxiety, identity, self-worth, assertiveness, anger, relationships, trauma, depression, and grief. 


Supporting Our Community

Grand Rapids is a growing, changing community alive with opportunity and compassion. Our mission is to be an active part of that community by helping residents of Grand Rapids become their best selves.

Attending school in the area, our counselors noticed the needs of their neighbors, family, and friends, and decided to help meet those needs with meaningful conversation and positive action. We all struggle with change sometimes; we all know how disappointment hurts.

Brave Grand Rapids was founded to foster a safe place for people to take chances, make choices, and create lasting change.
