Renewing the Mind ~ Transforming Lives


We are an Eclectic group of mental health professionals utilizing various theoretical approaches  to assist clients in:

  1. identifying the source of emotional pain/distress and/or behavioral conflicts;

  2. recognizing relationships between self-destructive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; and

  3. changing adverse traits into qualities that enrich cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and spiritual health.


While our treatment modalities are Eclectic, we evoke clients to:

  • think critically (analyzing and challenging thoughts, emotions, perceptions, experiences, beliefs, and values)

  •  recognize cognitive and behavior connections;

  •  manage emotion and behavior;

  • clarify beliefs, values, and standards;

  • determine the significance of an event or issue;

  • consider consequences before acting; and

  • explore efficient ways of responding, behaving, and coping.
