Rick Rodgers is a Social Worker and Yoga teacher who lives in Terre Haute Indiana. He is originally from the Chicago suburb of Aurora Illinois. This is why Rick is licensed in both Indiana and Illinois.
Eleven years ago Rick returned from Afghanistan as an Infantryman in the Army. After seeing what many of his peers went through upon return, Rick wanted to help. He was worried about his comrades who were dealing with PTSD, depression, addiction, and domestic violence issues. This is when Rick went into Behavioral Health.
Rick has a vast background in dealing with mental health and addiction issues. Rick specializes in trauma therapy. Rick uses different modalities such as Cognitive Processing Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. He knows it is important to take a strengths-based approach to his patients and not to take a one size fits all approach. Upon assessment with the patient, Rick and the patient will work together to find the best solution for the patient's problem.
