Bethany Rogers, NCC, LPC, R-PT
Bethany K. Rogers is a graduate of The University of Mississippi with an Education Specialist’s
degree in Play Therapy. She received a Master in Leadership and Counselor Education in
Community Counseling. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Ole Miss. She is
a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the
state of Mississippi and Georgia. She is a Registered Play Therapist and is a member of the
Association for Play Therapy. Bethany began her therapeutic work at the Child Advocacy and
Play Therapy Institute in Oxford, MS from August 2012-December 2014 providing play therapy
services to children and adolescents as a graduate student. Her love for working with children,
adolescents, and families who struggle with mental health illness continues to be a driving force.
She has worked in different settings including university settings with college/graduate students,
a non-profit organization, community mental health center, and in a mental health agency that
emphasized integrative care. Her interests include foster care and adoption, infancy and early
childhood mental health treatment and advocacy, attachment disorder, developmental delays,
trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, and working with children of divorced families. Further, she
enjoys research within developmental psychology, lifespan, and early childhood development.
She strongly believes in the importance of building healthy attachment styles between a child
and his/her caregiver.
During my training, I worked at the Child Advocacy and Play Therapy Institute (CAPTI) at the
University of Mississippi where I saw clients with a myriad of issues including abuse, neglect,
depression, anxiety, divorce/custody cases, grief, and attachment concerns. I was trained through
a child-centered, non-directive approach that gave clients the power to process their emotions in
a safe and natural way—through play. Through my experience working with children and
families, I have tried to implement a loving and safe attitude towards all who come into my care.
Further, I believe that while a child has every right to voice their feelings, I fully support and
embrace an advocacy role in our therapeutic relationship and by doing so, I give them a chance
to be heard. I work closely with the Department of Family and Children’s Services as well as
adoption and foster placement agencies to help better serve our children and families in need. I
thrive to help every child and family that comes into contact with me.
I am paneled with the following insurance companies: BCBS, Aetna, Tricare, Amerigroup,
WellCare, Caresource, Peachstate, and Ambetter.
