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


If you or a loved one are suffering from 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 excellent news to share. For 25 years my colleagues and I have been assembling a suite of integrative approaches that target the very roots of such suffering.  We're now regularly seeing complete recoveries from these disorders - often in much less time than we once thought such healing would take.

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 Anxiety

Anxiety brings more people to psychotherapy than any other disorder. CBT is recognized as the first-line treatment for generalized anxiety, social fears, phobias and OCD.

Healing Depression

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

Intensive Therapy

No data supports one hour of weekly therapy as an optimal dose. I offer patients 4 – 6 hours of in-person or online psychotherapy for up to 4 days in a row in my therapy intensives.

My Tropic of Cancer Book Cover

Forthcoming January, 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. The book traces the appearance, remission and reappearance of the disease in the family genome. It also lays out the environmental, social and political milieus of its arising. In Tropic, the author shares his family’s psychological and spiritual responses to cancer, inviting the reader along on this deeply personal, inter-generational awakening to both the perils and possibilities that travel with this extraordinary disease. Tropic tells, finally, an exuberantly hopeful story that will encourage any family touched by cancer to find its own authentic, life-affirming and human response.

Of Mice & Men & Women

Ever wonder why we’re mean to each other? Or why we would choose to be loving and kind? Over the last decade research on mice – which share much of our neurobiology – has shed light on these questions. Observing Mickey and Minnie, it turns out, is another way of observing ourselves. In this post learn more about what mice are teaching us about aggression, empathy, altruism and even equanimity.
