Michael Stickney MA, CRC

Partner and Aging Life Care ® Professional


Michael was born and has lived in Raleigh all his life. He received his Master’s degree in Counseling from North Carolina Central University and his undergraduate Psychology degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He brings over 25 years of experience identifying, accessing, and managing resources and helping people to achieve their desired outcomes.

He began his professional career at a nonprofit (Community Partnerships) that assisted individuals with developmental disabilities in finding employment in the local community. Working with an “in-house” program with individuals with Traumatic Brain Injuries, he was able to develop his skills of working with clients and their families towards achieving goals, both with employment and all other aspects of their lives (social, physical). 

As a certified rehab counselor, Michael worked with individuals with disabilities. He helped them attain new jobs as well as training and education/certification. In this role, Michael worked with attorneys and insurance industry officials and now uses this knowledge to advocate for his clients. 

Michael is married with two sons. He loves playing and watching sports but enjoys specifically coaching.

“Each of my positions has helped train me to become an excellent resource identifier and facilitator of services. For as long as I can remember I have been someone that has wanted to help others to achieve their goals. As a case manager, my goal is to help you be able to focus on loving your family and worrying less about the potential issues surrounding their day-to-day care/needs.”
