Dr. Barry Gardner and his wife, Cyndie are pioneer founders of neurotherapy in the state of Oklahoma. They believe they were divinely inspired to help families and individuals to be healthy as God intended beginning with a fully functioning and optimal brain. “Our passion…through faith, prayer and neurotherapy is to provide a safe, drug free alternative to individuals seeking to achieve their fullest potential.
We steadfastly adhere to the Bible scripture, Jeremiah 29:11-13, “For I know the plans I have for you…to give you a hope and a future.”
Dr. Barry Gardner, D.C. BCN

Dr. Gardner is board certified in Neurofeedback therapy and 14 years ago pioneered the way for neurotherapy treatment and research in Oklahoma. “I believe the field of Neurotherapy is divinely inspired to help improve lives. The brains capabilities to heal itself are just now being fully realized. Neurofeedback is a way to assist in that healing process. I am amazed every day at the transformations that are taking place in our patient’s lives, individually and as a family. I am deeply honored to be a part of it and give God the glory for it.”

We are so thankful that God inspired us to use this life-changing therapy to give hope and make a difference in the lives of so many! Patients come from as far away as Africa to get treatment at our facility and RenuYou has recently been referred by the Mayo Clinic! We are honored to be the pioneers to bring Neurofeedback to Oklahoma 14 years ago and believe God has given us the mandate to help families find a drug-free alternative to prescription drugs and their side effects. We know that the brain can safely be re-trained and we have the research to back it up. To God be the glory!”
Dr. Stephanie Christner is the medical director at RenuYou. She is not your stereotypical psychiatrist! While Dr Christner can and will use pharmaceuticals when necessary, her goal is to look at the root cause and help individuals improve their health through natural alternatives and supplementation. She received her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine at Oklahoma State University and went on to complete her residency with the University of Oklahoma Department of Family Medicine and Psychiatry. She was awakened to do intense research as to the cause of her 6-month-old daughter’s sudden death, after getting inoculations. The research connected environmental issues and genetic variations as the root cause. This resulted in a profound motivation to understand the biochemical processes involved that can led to disease in susceptible individuals and the staggering increase in chronic metabolic diseases (diabetes, heart disease, gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue), neurologic disease (autoimmune disorders, developmental disorders, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s) and psychiatric disease (PTSD, suicide, depression, bipolar, anxiety, psychosis, substance dependence). RenuYou is delighted to have such a compassionate, dedicated Doctor of Psychiatry on Staff.
