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 with 18 years’ experience in the health care. 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 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.

I left the managed care industry after six years to pursue a full-time career in mental health counseling. I have been a social worker and I have provided counseling in a private practice as well as outpatient settings. 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 specialize in working with young-adult and middle-aged men struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms related to past, present, or future stressors/events. Initially, at our first encounter, I will ask question related to current and past symptoms and history, however, my goal early on if to create a space where you feel validated and seen. I want to hear your story and gain insight into who you are, what you believe, and what you value. I genuinely believe that you have the power to re-author your story if it got off-track. You have the ability to reinvent yourself and engage in your own existential makeover. I will be your guide on your quest to make changes and I walk next to you as you take on whatever challenges you must face. Answer the call. Let’s take the next step on your hero’s journey.
