Michael Rogell, Ph.D.
My graduate training in psychology was at the University of Illinois, in Champaign, Illinois, where I received my doctorate. Before that I attended the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, earning a Masters Degree in Guidance and Counseling. My pre-doctoral internship was at the Counseling Center at Michigan State University. After receiving my doctorate I returned to the Counseling Center at MSU to take a temporary full time position before entering private practice.
My bachelors degree was in Elementary Education from ColoradoCollege in Colorado Springs. After college I spent four years teaching fourth grade before becoming a stock broker for MerrillLynch for four years. These different careers have given me a broad perspective in working with clients.
I spent two years working at a nursing home doing therapy with the residents and providing supervision to both Masters level therapists and to limited licensed psychologists. For seven years I was one of two facilitators of the MSU Pet Loss Support Group. While I do not facilitate this group anymore, I do often draw on my experience from working with this group in helping my clients deal with loss and grief.
Beginning in 1999 I was an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University in the Department of Counselor Education. I taught practicum and internship classes, and supervised Masters level students. Unfortunately, the university ended that program in 2009, so I am no longer affiliated with MSU.
