Rick Rodgers

(MSW, LCSW, CADC)

About Me

My name is Rick Rodgers and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I believe children at a young age should have the opportunity to learn how to have a healthy relationship with their thoughts and emotions. I have worked with adolescent children since 2012. I am a veteran who wants to lead by example. I am excited to have the opportunity to be a positive role model in a young person’s life!

I am using a text approach to help young people. I am here for encouragement, or just to listen. Sometimes, when advice is needed, I may be able to help with this too.

Rick has been amazing with my son! He knows how to get him engaged through the likes of my son. We truly appreciate his experience and expertise!

I worked with Rick for months. He is an amazing trauma specialist and very good at what he does. I have met all of my goals with him and healed tremendously. Unfortunately as a NY Resident since many things are returning back to pre-Covid, I can no longer have Rick as a counselor and I am so sad about it! I am glad and thankful to have met all of my goals with him though! Also, if you choose Rick be prepared to do the work and the worksheets, I promise it makes a difference! I am sad to see us separate but I know he will help so many others! Happy healing everyone.

Great counselor, really takes the time to hear out both sides. Responds quickly and always punctual with the sessions.

Counselor Rick Rodgers has helped me a lot after only 2 sessions. He took time to listen to me and understand what I wanted from our time together. He is very knowledgeable and understanding. For me, he went over tools to cope with anxiety during our sessions to help in the moment but also gave me worksheets to do on my own time that gave me the tools necessary to deal with my anxiety all on my own. Very empowering. Thank you again to Rick Rodgers!

Rick spends the time to develop a program that works for your needs. Everything is built up over time and is never rushed. Highly recommended.

I like this therapist, it's very difficult for me to connect with people in a way that they understand what I'm trying to say or what I'm really thinking about a situation and he's very good at locking into that focus point and helping me understand

He was very professional and honest

Rick Rodgers listens and gives feedback. I don't feel as if I'm being judged.

Written by D.A. on Mar 10, 2021 after counseling with Rick for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and grief

I ha e tried counseling before, but the mental health professional listened, but didn't offer any "tools" to help cope with my situation. So far, in 2 sessions, Rick has given me several different perspectives, as well as different worksheets to see and work on and provide information.
I believe that this has helped me more than I thought online counseling would. Rick has helped me start to make valuable changes and provide a positive direction to turn to. I will continue to seek the guidance he given me so far

I highly recommend Rick Rodgers. He stays consistent with sharing information with worksheets after our session pertaining to that session. With his help , I’ve been able to improve my communication skills.

He really takes the time to listen to the issues and to help find resolutions.

the flexibility and multiple options offered on teen counseling with my counselor make therapy so accessible and in reach at any time. i feel lucky to be able to reach out to my counselor whenever i need to and know that he will answer me as soon as he can. rick rodgers has helped me very much and i look forward to continuing this service!

He is absolutely amazing! I have been trying to get in with a therapist locally at my Psychiatrist office and it was taking weeks. I finally got in with one, while I was still using teen counseling, and they can’t get me back in until October!!! It’s crazy and not helpful especially when you’re going through Covid-19 and traumatic experiences. I’m recommending this and Rick to everyone I know. He is OUTSTANDING!

I was paired with other counselors who were very short with me or weren't available in a timely manner. Rick provides responses as soon as he can, rather its a scheduled appointment or not. He truly cares about his clients.

In terms of couples counseling, he prioritizes both individual's needs. He listens well and his intuition on problems is spot on. The advice he gives on exercises to overcome problems is fairly effective as well. He has evident experience with sufferers of PTSD and other mental health issues that makes sufferers of them more comfortable to discuss with Rick. I'd highly recommend him.

Written by M.R. on Mar 21, 2020 after counseling with Rick for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Rick has been great. He ask rather simple question that are very effective. I am amazed by this. We've been in couples counseling before with 4 counselors. I went from wanting a divorce to understanding my husband within one 30 minute session. We are excited to see how much we will grow with Rick's simplistic approach. Glad we were matched with him.

Rick is great. I tried the online scene a while back with a different company, and was not happy. Rick is refreshing and helpful and almost always available!! Two thumbs way up.

I thought that Rick Rodgers was a great councilor. I he would always listen to what I had to say and helped identify and figure where I needed to improve on in my thoughts. I also greatly appreciated him being tough on me about doing exercises and failing to keep myself on schedule. He was never rude about it too, he would instead ask why I'm not trying to better myself and what was holding me back. I really do think he has helped me in changing my negative perspective on my life and what I think others think of me . Thanks Rick

Rick Rodgers has been very helpful and insightful throughout our many sessions together. Rick took time to listen to my problems and helped me come up with many ways to tackle them. He helped me a lot when I was going through a big change in my life. Rick has been very insightful, non-judgmental, and patient with me. He allowed me to go at my pace and was willing to spend extra time trying to understand my problems and figure out different solutions and suggestions for me. I am in a much better place emotionally and mentally now and this is in large part because of him. I highly recommend him.
