Dr. Terry Hickman

Dr. Terry Hickman, formerly of Presque Isle and native to Rib Mountain, WI received his Doctoral Degree in Educational Psychology in 1974 from Brigham Young University, Provo UT.

After beginning his psychology practice in Santa Barbara, CA he moved to Ironwood, MI in 1979. He worked as a Clinical Psychologist for more than 25 years in both Gogebic County MI and Iron County WI and also served as Clinical Director of Gogebic County Mental Health Center.

Terry dedicated many of his last years in practice to working with veterans and victims of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He was tireless in his support for veteran’s health care and assisting them in obtaining their veterans rights.

Even after he retired, his door was always open and he continued to volunteer endless hours of assistance and counseling to the vets. Through his perseverance he changed the lives of many vets and their families by fighting for the financial and medical care they so rightly deserved. Terry provided unique assistance to many local veterans. The vets lost a great advocate with his sudden and unexpected death in 2008.
