Mike Rentschler

Mike Rentschler LAPC has eight years experience working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, life transitions, and difficulty managing anger.  Mike believes that everyone has value and that change can absolutely occur within someone with a solid foundation of trust between therapist and client.  Inspired by the philosophy of Carl Rogers at the core, Mike also incorporates elements of cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing practices.  Mike works with children, adults, couples, and families through meeting each where they are and taking them to a place of hope, strength, and healing.  In his time away from work, Mike spends most of it with his two sons and his wife.  Mike seeks out adventures in Athens and the surrounding areas as much as possible by being outdoors, being in tune with college football and the NFL, and finding all the kids eat free places.
