Supervising Psychologist

Dr. Rodgers is a licensed psychologist with a clinical focus on integrated health care. Her interest in health psychology emerged in her undergraduate years at Hofstra University, leading to High Honors distinction for her senior thesis on “stealth health.” After graduating summa cum laude, Dr. Rodgers worked for a year as an aide for students with special needs before continuing her education at Widener University. During her five years with Widener, she completed clinical rotations in therapy and assessment, inpatient, and outpatient, private practice and community mental health work. She completed coursework for both a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) and Masters in Business Administration with a focus on Healthcare Management (MBA-HCM). Her education culminated with a doctoral dissertation exploring the role of attachment styles in emotional eating patterns and obesity among adolescents. Dr. Rodgers takes a generalist approach to her work, pulling from various evidence-based practices based on a client’s presenting needs at a given time. Some of her most common interventions are motivational interviewing, mindfulness, and self-compassion. She uses a strengths-based approach with supervisees to encourage their growth as independent clinicians.
