Professional statement

Damon Dodge is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working with clients online in California, Colorado and New York. He works primarily with adult men ages 18-60 dealing with work stress, life transitions, depression 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 also provides ketamine assisted therapy for treatment-resistant depression.

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.

Message to clients

Your life isn’t going how you want it to go. Something’s getting in your way…holding you back. You’ve tried doing something about it—maybe even worked with a therapist or two—but you still haven’t found what you're looking for.

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?

With your goals in mind, we begin the process of getting you where you want to go. While I help facilitate the journey, you do the heavy lifting. Sometimes the ride is smooth; sometimes it's bumpy. No matter what each session brings, I'm committed to helping you achieve your vision.

I don’t pretend to have the answers to all life’s questions. I am, however, prepared to create a safe environment where you can gain insight into your life, tap into undiscovered possibilities and make new choices to create the life you want.
