Renewing the Mind ~ Transforming Lives
We are an Eclectic group of mental health professionals utilizing various theoretical approaches to assist clients in:
identifying the source of emotional pain/distress and/or behavioral conflicts;
recognizing relationships between self-destructive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; and
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.
