Phyllis Oswald Rogers MA, LMHC
Phyllis O. Rogers is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the State of Washington. Phyllis holds a Master’s Degree in Applied Behavioral Science, Family Systems Counseling, from the Leadership Institute of Seattle, Bastyr University. She has been a family therapist since 1998, serving hundreds of clients. In 2010, Phyllis opened inLife Clinic, LLC and serves as the Director. She created the name from the saying, Sometimes in life, everyone needs a little help. She specializes in working with police officers, firefighters, medics, and their family members who face a myriad of issues, including cumulative stress, PTSD, admin betrayal, anxiety, depression, critical incidents, OIS, LODD and relationship challenges. She is trained in EMDR and the Gottman Method for couples counseling.
Phyllis also contracts with several agencies as a consultant working onsite with their peer support teams, Chaplains, wellness programs, officer involved shootings, critical incident stress defusings and debriefings.
Due to her unique combination of training and personal experience with trauma, in 2008 Phyllis was asked to become a volunteer Police and Fire Chaplain for the City of Redmond, WA, where she served on the days she was not seeing clients. As a Chaplain, she supported police and fire personnel and their families, as they managed on-going stress, critical incidents, and traumatic experiences in their roles as first responders. Phyllis was also dispatched on scene to critical emergency situations in order to provide emotional support to individuals dealing with major trauma, life-threatening situations, or the loss of a loved one.
Eventually, the Police Chief hired Phyllis to work on site at the agency. She is now the Police Resilience Coordinator for three police agencies and provides support to other agencies when requested. As a consultant, she is available to support officers through one on ones, facilitate critical incident stress debriefings, supervise the Peer Support Team and Chaplains, all with the goal of building resiliency throughout the agency.
Phyllis has been a trainer and speaker for the Chaplain Academy, the International Conference of Police Chaplains, and been a featured speaker for trainings at many law enforcement, fire and EMS agencies, and other first responder events.
Phyllis’ passion to help people through trauma was developed through her own personal tragedy. At the age of 34, her late husband was in a near-fatal car accident, leaving him in a vegetative state for 10 years. Phyllis became his caregiver while raising their three children alone, ages 3, 6 & 8 years. To provide for her family she returned to school, during the last few years of Scott’s life, to complete her undergraduate studies and obtain her Master’s Degree in Family Systems Counseling. Today, she finds meaning and purpose in her own painful journey by helping others deal with trauma.
Brooke Lundquist Ph.D, LMHC
Brooke Lundquist, Ph.D. is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in the State of Washington. She received her MA degree in Counseling Psychology from Northwest University in 2007 and in 2017 she completed her Ph.D. in Counseling from Oregon State University.
Brooke specializes in working with adult individuals and couples, as well as first responders who are dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, parenting, and a variety of other challenges. She also works with couples in premarital counseling and has extensive experience working with clients experiencing grief and loss. Brooke is a certified Prepare-Enrich facilitator and is trained in Level I and II of Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Being that each client has unique needs and individual personalities, she uses a variety of techniques and approaches to counseling. These approaches include, but are not limited to, narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy, emotion-focused therapy, and person-centered therapy. Brooke believes in the power of a client’s story, who they are, where they have come from, and where they are going.
Her approach is to join with clients and assist them on their journey by encouraging, supporting, and often challenging them along the way. Brooke sees her clients as the experts of their own lives and, through a shared experience, her hope is to explore the client’s story and invite them to engage in reflections, reframing, and to create new stories as a result of the therapeutic interactions.
Thanks, Phyllis. You are the best.
You provided me with such comfort over the years when everything was a mess. You have had such an important impact on my life and I would not be here without your help. I truly mean this from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.
The EMDR blew my mind. I’ve been trying to recall the critical event and connect with the emotions, and the two won’t connect. That brings me so much hope. Thank you for investing in me and being so passionate about your work.
Police Patrol Officer
It makes such a difference when you are able to speak to someone who understands and appreciates the challenges law enforcement officers face. Thank you for all your support to me and to so many other law enforcement professionals.
