Investing in the Future, One Person at a Time

A Little About Us

Renewing Minds Mentoring & Counseling was started in 2007 as a way to bridge the gap between those who are struggling with behavioral issues and mental illnesses. The idea was to provide individuals with knowledge, direction, and a support system that will enable them to grow and move forward in life. We specialize in serving children (ages 7-12), adolescents (ages 13-17), young adults (ages 18-35) and parents locally in the Horry County area and across the state of South Carolina.

Our Vision

We see a generation of individuals who are renewed in the Spirit of their minds, producing estimable behaviors for those following to imitate.

Our Mission Statement

We seek to connect with individuals through innovative activities and trusting relationships, to build working and therapeutic relationships that will transform unhealthy behaviors into healthy behaviors.
