Dr. Rex R. Vogan II, clinical and sport psychologist, works from an emotion focused, depth oriented, and present tense perspective. Consequently, he works with clients from the “inside out” which focuses on their subjective worlds, emotional well-being, and increasing self-awareness. With perseverance and dedication of both Dr. Vogan and the patient, subjective exploration brings about long lasting objective change individuals are searching for when they enter psychotherapy.
With his integrated training in clinical and sport psychology, Dr. Vogan is equipped to deal with mental health concerns that arise in adolescents and adults in addition to athlete specific difficulties and performance enhancement skills training. In addition to his specialty training in both disciplines, he has further been trained as an in-depth psychotherapist by The International Institute for Humanistic Studies since 2004 and continues to participate in annual advanced training's held in California and Arizona.
Dr. Vogan's therapeutic philosophy is based on an existential-humanistic framework. This therapy is process-oriented rather than solutions-focused, and concentrates on the subjective experience of the person. It asks deep questions about the lived experience of the human being and the nature of anxiety, grief, and isolation. It aims to increase self-awareness, thereby creating space for the individual to live to his or her full potential with authenticity. It focuses on integrating what we feel, think, and how we exist in the world. It highlights the importance of individual responsibility for one's life, making the implicit explicit, and fostering self-discovery.
Dr. Vogan received his doctoral degree in clinical psychology with a specialization in sport psychology from Argosy University-Phoenix; his master’s degree in sport psychology from Ithaca College; and his Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science with a minor in psychology from The George Washington University.
