Therapist in Brighton, Michigan Josh Ayers, LLMSW

Josh Ayers, LLMSW

Josh Ayers is a Limited Licensed Master Social Worker in Michigan who has been practicing since 2022. He has a Masters of Social Work from the University of Michigan School of Social Work and a Bachelor of Science-Neuroscience from the University of Michigan. Josh hopes to best support kids and young adults who seek the support coping with anxiety and depression symptoms. This could potential come from school or life related stress, bullying trauma, and other situations that could potentially necessitate support. Josh wants to provide a space for those who he works with to have an environment to set goals that allow them to thrive and succeed in a world that is not always supportive of their varying needs. Josh integrates life experiences, degrees in Neuroscience and Social Work from the University of Michigan and my passion to help kids to create a safe, non-judgmental environment for kiddos to work on their problems. He uses a holistic approach, which includes CBT, motivational interviewing, and a solution-based therapy style. Josh lives with his husband, who he recently married, along with their two fur babies. When Josh was young, he bullied severely and understands the need for mental health support but not knowing where to turn. In his free time, he enjoys reading, exercising to help with anxiety, and playing Pokémon. A fun fact about Josh is that he was in the U of M Marching Band.
