Michael “Mick” Rogers graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill’s M.S.W. program in 1980 and worked with children (on Medicaid) and their families for 30 years and then with college students when he started his Ph.D. program at Smith (because he needed his summers to be on campus.) Prior to earning his Ph.D., he earned Smith’s Advanced Clinical Supervisor Certificate and his American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists' Approved Supervisor Certificate.

Rogers has volunteered at various states' clinical societies. Since serving as California’s president of the California Society for Clinical Social Work he chairs its ethics committee and its CEU approval committees. As a clinical social worker he provided therapy, served as clinical director, executive director and board member.

For the last several years he taught Second Year Practice at Smith, and Transitioning from Field Instructor to Clinical Supervisor at Sacramento State University.

Roger’s practice interests include college students with complex trauma, couples counseling using Emotionally Focused Therapy and treating California clinicians whose licenses are suspended.
