Mr Mintie is a cognitive-behavioral therapist, educator and best-selling author with 30 years experience helping patients live happier, more satisfying lives.

Welcome!

If you or a loved one are suffering the physical and emotional distress of anxiety, depression, or PTSD, my heart goes out to you. These illnesses represent some of the most intense forms of anguish any human being can experience. I also have some wonderful news: over the last 30 years my colleagues and I have been assembling a suite of integrative approaches that target the very roots of these disorders.  We're now regularly seeing complete recoveries from them all - often in much less time than we once thought such healing would take. Please avail yourself of the resources on my site, and reach out to me should you wish to connect in person.

Healing PTSD

Trauma touches every life. My colleagues and I have developed a cutting-edge suite of mind/body tools anyone can learn and use to heal the physical and mental  aftereffects of trauma.

Healing Depression

One in five Americans will, at some point in in their lives, be laid low by feelings of sadness, lethargy, hopelessness and worthless. Happily, a drug-free, evidence-based path to healing is now available.

Intensive Therapy

No data exists in support of one hour of weekly therapy being an optimal dose. I offer interested patients four to six hours of psychotherapy for up to five days in a row in my popular therapy intensives.

Forthcoming April, 2021 My Tropic of Cancer: Living & Dying With a Dread Disease

My Tropic of Cancer: Living & Dying With a Dread Disease tells the story of cancer’s passage through three generations of the Mintie family. This deeply personal account relates the heartbreak, hope and hilarity that travel with a life-threatening diagnosis. It includes gritty, day-today detail of the author's life as a cancer patient, and the wider environmental, social and political milieus of cancer's arising. Tropic relates one family's psychological and spiritual responses to cancer, inviting the reader along on an intimate, inter-generational awakening to both the perils and possibilities that travel with this extraordinary disease. Tropic tells, finally, an exuberantly hopeful story, one likely to encourage any family touched by cancer to find its own authentic, life-affirming and human response.

Advance praise for My Tropic of Cancer:

Daniel's new book shares the story of his cancer career – and a great deal more. Albert Camus used the magnifying glass of bubonic plague to look deeply into the human condition. Daniel utilizes the lens of cancer to do the same. His book helps us see that while a life-threatening disease is always life-changing, it changes nothing essential. Cancer is an opportunity for us all to see more clearly the way things are.  As a physician intimately involved in cancer care, I wholeheartedly recommend “My Tropic Of Cancer” to anyone whose life has been touched by this disease.
