James Radson, Counseling Intern

I am a Clinical Mental Health Counseling master’s student at Eastern Michigan University. As a counselor-in-training, my graduate coursework is preparing me to work with individuals of a variety of ages, concerns, backgrounds. This includes specific training in cross-cultural counseling, helping clients with addictions, crisis counseling, and couples and family work. As a member of the LGBT community, I have a particular interest in working with clients of this demographic. I value this opportunity to help all those who seek mental health support.

I view counseling as a partnership. We will work together to help you explore your mental health concerns, navigate coping processes, and foster resilience. Throughout, we can tailor the counseling plan to match your unique circumstances and preferences.

From me, you can expect a nonjudgmental environment. I will listen with curiosity and empathy. I will treat you with respect and act in an ethical manner, adhering to the American Counseling Association’s Code of Ethics.

In turn, I ask that you try to harness a sense of adventure. This is an opportunity for you to learn more about yourself, how you feel, how you think, how you behave, and what you might want with each. Engaging with your humanity is not an easy quest. It might be uncomfortable. At times, it might even bring on strong feelings of anger, depression, anxiety, etc. There are no miracle cures. I cannot promise certain change. But on this journey, I can be a source of professional insight and support.
