About Me

James Wickersham


I am a Licensed Master’s Social Worker, graduating from Wayne State University.  In addition, I hold advanced certification as an alcohol and drug counselor.  As a licensed practitioner in the state of Michigan, I offer counseling services to teens and adults of all ages.  My specialties include working with individuals affected by anxiety, depression and substance abuse.

My experience includes working in outpatient and residential treatment settings.  Previous to my career as a counselor, I taught at the elementary level four fifteen years in the field of education which afforded me the opportunity to work with children, young adults, and their parents.

My job as a therapist is to listen, understand and foster positive change.  It’s my objective to assist and guide those that I counsel in meeting their goals and overcoming the challenges they face.  I provide a supportive and relaxed environment where you will feel comfortable being yourself.  I also have experience addressing such issues as self-esteem, communication issues, behavior problems, and life transitions.  My therapy style is collaborative, empathetic, and genuine.

I encourage you to explore my website to determine if the services I offer meet your individual needs.  When you are comfortable and ready to reach out, I invite you to connect with me.
