This gives you powerful tools that you can use to change your thinking and dramatically improve your life.

He currently blogs on the Psychology Today website and has a regular YouTube channel and podcast called “Three Minute Therapy.” He wrote the advice column, "Ask Dr.Mike,” which appeared in the Mensa San Francisco Intelligencer and In the Know.
