Professional statement

Damon Dodge is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working with clients in Denver, CO and Los Angeles, CA. He works primarily with adult men ages 18-60 dealing with work stress, life transitions and social anxiety. His other areas of focus include driven professionals in high-pressure environments, the challenges of introversion and the broader GBTQ+ community.

Damon approaches therapy from an existential, post-modern and behavioral perspective. In sessions, Damon opens the discussion asking what kind of life you want to create for yourself and explores what you are willing to do in order to bring that vision to life. He has extensive experience with adults and adolescents and has worked with individuals, traditional/nontraditional relationships and families.

Damon has extensive training in evidence-based practices and working with the GBTQ+ population. He also teaches various psychotherapy classes in Pepperdine University's Graduate School of Education and Psychology, where he studied.

Damon is based in Denver, CO and is also meeting remotely with clients all over California & Colorado. He looks forward to meeting you.


Message to clients

YOU CAME HERE FOR A REASON. Your life isn’t going how you want it to go. Something’s getting in your way…holding you back. You’re an intelligent, action-oriented person, and you’ve tried doing something about it. You may have even worked with a therapist or two, but you still haven’t found what you're looking for.

PICTURE YOURSELF AT THE END OF THE STORY. Imagine if life had a fast-forward button. What would you want your life to look like at the end of your time in therapy? What is it you’d be doing all this for? How would you know it’s time to bring your therapy to an end?

WHAT’S THERAPY LIKE WHEN RESULTS ARE THE FOCUS? You know where you are, where you want to be and what you’re willing to do to get there. You set and achieve incremental goals, checking boxes as you go and feeling those wins. Once you get a sense of how far you’re getting, you may find yourself feeling more hopeful, encouraged and willing do more.
