Jamie Simpkins Rogers became a mental health professional because she wanted to help people experience all the goodness that life has to offer.
It all started with her pre-teen-propensity for analyzing her own family members. Rogers often tried to engage her captive sibling audience in such questions as “Why do you think so-and-so does this?” or “How did you feel when she said that?”
Those kinds of questions led to her clinical training and are now her life’s work. She believes that relationships are the not-so-secret secret to a happy life. Family members, friends, and business associates have ways of being like little mirrors who reflect back to us our own fears, flaws, and judgments. However, relationships can also point us toward healing and personal change – but only if we let them. She loves helping others on that journey.
