Therapy Groups for Intrusive Thoughts

Do you suffer from emotionally intense, negative intrusive thoughts?

Regardless of their cause, many emotional problems are maintained by negative intrusive thoughts. These include most cases of chronic depression, anxiety, and personality disorders.

If you've had cognitive therapy or CBT in the past, you've heard this before, probably using the term 'automatic thoughts'. Unfortunately, cognitive therapy has never had an adequate form of treatment -- which is why you're here.

In my weekly groups, we will work on treating members negative intrusions. We will use a method that I have developed, called Desensitization to Intrusive Thoughts or (DIT).

It is based on a Buddhist meditation type called TWIM made secular and acceptable to members of all faiths.

In the safe and supportive environment of this group, you will be guided to develop skill with this form of meditation and how to use it to free yourself from your chronic problems. 

You will be asked to set aside 30 minutes daily for your meditation and note-taking homework.

Groups are limited to six members. We meet weekly on Tuesdays or Wednesdays for twelve weeks.  Zoom sessions will run for 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM.  I will keep the Zoom meeting open until 9:00 to answer any administrative questions. Additional support will be provided via group chat and individual therapy sessions.

This is a great, low-cost way to treat your chronic anxiety, depression, and personality disorders. Low income session costs begin at $20 with a regular fee of $40. 

Next group begins on November 8, 2022.

Participants must call or email me before October 24.

To make things easier, your first session is free.

About Me

I have an uncommon background for a  psychotherapist. After graduating from college, I worked for twenty years in advanced computer technology.

I've done everything from biomedical engineering to educational computer games, to steel mill automation, to national defense information technology.

This experience taught me to be practical. Projects have timelines and due dates -- and they have to work.


I also learned that people are much more interesting than computers.
