Sax Guthery

Program Director - Macomb

Sax Guthery has been the Director of Macomb Services since April 2015.  Sax joined our team with an extensive education and over 30 years of experience working in health and human services.

After earning his Associate Degree in Liberal Arts and Sign Language Study, Sax attended Madonna College and pursued a degree in social work. He continued his education at Spring Arbor College where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Family Life Education while receiving a Master of Arts in Counseling and Psychology from Ashland Theological Seminary. Sax is a board certified Professional Counselor through the American Psychotherapy Association, a Certified Relationship Specialist, and a Certified Addiction Counselor.

In addition to his education, Sax has worked in a variety of roles with local and nationally based organizations, including National Council of Alcohol and Drug Dependence and the Children’s Home of Detroit; Cherry Health Services in partnership with the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the United States Probation Office; and the Detroit Medical Center. Sax has also worked as an adjunct professor teaching subjects such as Theories, Marriage & Family, Abnormal Psych, and counsels master-level students.

Sax chose to pursue a career in the mental health industry because he wants to help people have a sense of health and wholeness, and that they have something to offer society through their journey in life.  Sax enjoys empowering consumers to make positive changes and meet the challenges they face in their life.  

Outside of working with consumers, Sax is very involved in the community. Sax serves on the Ashland Alumni Board, Spring Arbor Alumni Board, is a member of the Christian Association of Counselors, American Psychotherapy Association, FBI Citizen Academy, and Covenant Leadership for Clergy, and volunteers at the Veteran’s Hospital to serve in their PTSD groups.
