About

I'm a clinical psychologist in private practice for about 50 years, focusing on interpersonal/ intimate relationships, anxieties and depressions. I'm an active "therapist's therapist". I've been training other therapists for 30 years, & work clinically with adults, couples & 3 weekly therapy groups. My approach is Integrative/Eclectic, combining the many therapies I've studied intensively: Certified Group Therapist, Interpersonal, Cognitive-Behavioral, Gestalt, t.a., clinical hypnosis, and EMD-R. My special strength as a therapist is developing rapid, warm rapport through authentic conversation & open, honest feedback.
If I'm not the right therapist, I'll suggest another, better suited to the person or issues. I can usually help with a wide variety of Anxieties, Depressions, Relationship and Emotional Intimacy issues, ADHD & physical Pain or Disease. Often overlooked, research shows group therapy usually equally or more effective and efficient as individual therapy.
I love my work, am a dad w/ a happy marriage and personal life. I relate and am usually perceived as about 20 years younger than my chronological age. Folks usually find it easy to talk with me, even about very upsetting issues. I'm relatively flexible, creative, and goal oriented, and usually assign homework between sessions for faster relief and comfort.

Bob Dick's Groups

3 weekly eclectic therapy groups

I lead 3 weekly 90 minute therapy groups : 2 in Raleigh and 1 in Chapel Hill. Group therapy is research supported as usually equally or more effective than individual treatment, and relatively cost-efficient. I see new group clients several individual sessions: to make a strong therapeutic bond, exchange necessary information about each other, do a little reading, to help write specific, behaviorally defined goals, & go over many handouts about how to get the most from group therapy, and in detail 2 pages of Group Guidelines. Emotional intimacy and changing how you're perceived by others are practiced experientially.

More about this group

see above

Please see Above Description / All my groups are open-ended, and three times a year [February, June & October], I lead a full day Hypnosis Retreat to maximize clients' progress. I also lead a monthly Training Group for therapists.
