How to refer a patient

Gregory Rogers, PhD Print Friendly Page

Greg Rogers is a Licensed Psychologist who provides psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults, and their families. Greg also serves as a Behavioral Health Supervisor. He has practiced at UW Health since 2004. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative effort, built on transparency and trust, to achieve greater well-being, improved functioning, and higher quality-of-life. The therapist offers empathy and expertise and the patient or client brings strengths and self-knowledge. With both sides working on the relationship and agreements on goals and the approach, psychotherapy can spark truly meaningful changes. My guiding principle in conducting psychotherapy dovetails with the 'serenity prayer' and its precedents, including this nursery rhyme: "For every ailment under the sun, there is a remedy, or there is none. If there be one, try to find it. If there be none, never mind it."
