I have deep respect for the individuals I work with, and am consistently amazed by the level of vulnerability, insight, and growth they are able to achieve when we work together in this way.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, LMHC
Life is tough. If you feel stuck, overwhelmed, or out of rhythm by the complexity and challenges life may present; I can and will help you. My name is Damon Neely. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and veteran who is most passionate about helping men navigate the challenges of 21st century manhood. I specialize in working with young-adult and middle-aged men struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms related to past, present, and future stressors, or events. I left the managed care industry after six years to pursue a full-time career in mental health counseling. My pursuit in growing my practice has fulfilled my lifelong desire to help others. I had a desire to make an impact helping others from early childhood. I was the youngest of seven children and I believe that through that experience I developed the power of observation and curiosity. Those traits are fundamental to being a good therapist as well as a good client. I have an existential focus in my practice that presumes that all individuals seek meaning, purpose, and self-actualization. I believe that anxiety and depression are symptoms that derive from a lack of meaning and purpose. I address men’s issues including perfectionism, unrealistic expectations, feelings of failure, low self-worth, self-acceptance, values towards life decisions, relational issues towards spouse/partner, social skills, anger management, emotional regulation, role specification, fatherhood, meaning/purpose, and identity. Moreover, I am a prior service veteran and I enjoy collaborating with veterans as they transition and adjust to civilian life. My integrative approach is designed to help you achieve your goals/objectives and shine insight onto whatever issues are troubling you. Ultimately, I believe you are on a journey towards, self-compassion, self-acceptance, self-worth, and authenticity. Even though I am trained in several theoretical orientation, my best traits include empathy, compassion, and being non-judgmental.
