Mike Rentschler

Mike works with a diverse array of individuals, couples, families, and groups as a counselor to help them where they are in life. Each person is unique with their own set of strengths and struggles, and the process of counseling can help someone identify those strengths within themselves and ways to cope with their struggles to live life as they desire. Mike works with children, adolescents, and families to empower all involved to desired and healthy outcomes. Mike also specializes in helping individuals going through difficult transitions and stress in life and those who are struggling with grief and loss. As a treatment provider for the Athens-Clarke County DUI Court, Mike meets regularly with individuals and their families who are impacted by addiction and trauma. Through the process of establishing a positive, healthy, and therapeutic relationship with each person he meets, Mike weaves together clinical knowledge with a personal and genuine presence in every session. After determining what the needs and goals are of a person, Mike is able to discuss the use of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing for changing (MI), and trauma skills implementation in therapy. Counseling is a sacred experience and gift, and Mike considers it an honor to work with each individual and family member he is able to meet.
