Renewing Minds Therapy employs a function-based approach, the "why" behind the symptoms, with special attention to trauma and special needs for individuals, families, and parental support. RMT's therapeutic experience provides us evidence that when we work to decrease diagnosis-based symptoms based on the "why," it moves you beyond putting out fires and moves you toward healing and freedom.
All behaviors such as anxiety, depression, anger, etc., once served a vital function in your life, keeping you safe and meeting your needs; especially in childhood development. But true freedom and healing comes from identifying the source of the fire: situations and experiences that have caused hurt or trauma in your life, healing those in your mind, body, and heart, then you will be free to learn new habits in your life that are free from your symptoms.
"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
