Dr. J’Dene Rogers, a licensed clinical psychologist originally from Muskogee, served as Psychologist of the Day for the Oklahoma House of Representatives on Feb. 10 at the invitation of Rep. Avery Frix (R-Muskogee).

“I’m thankful for the role Dr. Rogers has served in helping people in the Muskogee community and the surrounding area,” Frix said, “and that she was willing to lend her talents and expertise for us at the House of Representatives.”

Dr. Rogers obtained her doctorate from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, and a master’s in social work from the University of Oklahoma. She worked in the Chicago area for several years before returning to Oklahoma in 2001. She now serves as a community liaison with several local government and non-profit organizations.

Dr. Rogers founded Integrity Pathways, a multi-disciplinary outpatient clinic serving more than 700 clients annually in Muskogee and the surrounding areas. She also served on the Executive Board of the Oklahoma Psychological Association as secretary and is currently president-elect.
