Mick Rehrig, LCSW
Highlight Psych Collaborative
I believe in therapy that affirms, empowers, and supports people to recognize patterns, navigate changes, bolster personal growth and self-worth, and figure things out. Therapist and client collaboration are of utmost importance to me, guided by clinical theory and evidence-based therapeutic techniques that work for you. I am trained in family systems therapy, CBT, and solution-focused therapy. I work with clients struggling with sexuality struggles, internalized homophobia, gender dysphoria, racism, asylum/immigration struggles, bullying, addiction recovery, recent diagnosis of HIV/AIDS, depression, mood disorders, active substance use/abuse, suicidal ideation, self-injurious behaviors, PTSD, and/or homelessness.
I've specialized in affirming and supporting the LGBQ community and transgender/gender non-conforming/questioning youth (ages 13 and up), adults, and their families and partners for the past 7 years. I additionally work with clients who identify membership in intersecting communities including communities of color, open and/or poly relationships, LGBTQ identification, and/or involvement in the kink community. I am a member of the Highland Psych Collaborative, a compassionate group practice that aligns with collaboration, and affirmation of all.
This provider was not professional. They wasted a lot of my time by scheduling an appointment with me that they did not intend to keep. The resources they provided were not tailored to my individual needs, which made me feel ignored. As a note, this provider does not see clients with other mental health struggles. If you have trouble with issues such as trauma or PTSD, you will be referred to someone else immediately.
Overall, Mick made me feel rejected and unsupported. When I told him that I didn't know where to go to find another therapist, he said I could call the trans hotline.
