INDVIDUAL THERAPY | RELATIONSHIPS + COUPLES | MEN'S DEVELOPMENT
Welcome to psychotherapy that works.
When you are struggling and need to find the way forward, I offer much more than just listening. I will actively help you solve your problems, improve your relationships and transform your life in the process.
Yes, I will listen deeply and empathize with what you're going through -- but I will also guide, educate and inspire your personal growth. Most people I work with experiences significant breakthroughs and improvements.
If you've been feeling anxious, depressed, or stuck in some painful habits, I welcome you to reach out. Attending to your inner life will create positive changes in your outer life and relationships.
I have helped many people profoundly improve their lives, and I'll be honored to help you too. Let's have a quick phone conversation about how you're doing lately.

Hi, I'm Dr. Michael Damian.
My work is about helping you take care of your inner life so that your outer life and relationships can flourish. Feeling supported and guided through a tough time can be incredibly valuable.
I offer a powerful combination of deep listening and practical guidance. Sometimes we will explore the past, but the key is to understand how it is affecting you now and what to do about it.
My role is to meet my clients at their growing edge, the place between the old and the new. I listen for the pain that's never been heard and needs to be spoken. I also listen for the words and ideas that signal new energy and growth in you.
I make the process transformative and life-changing. You will receive plenty of guidance and feedback.
As someone who sees transformation every day, I know your past doesn't equal your future. Call me and I'll guide you through the process of getting started.
Treating a Broad Range of Life and Relationship Issues
My clients come to me with problems related to marriage, work, anxiety, depression, old traumas and major life transitions. I have broad experience assessing complex issues and helping people get through a crisis.
At the beginning of our work together, my aim will be to help you solve the problem, feel better and get through a crisis with courage and integrity. As our work continues, I facilitate deeper self-awareness, psychological maturity and a broader, more spiritual approach to one's sense of self and meaning in Life.
Is Therapy Just Telling My Story and Feeling My Feelings?
No - we will do far more than that. There are two things I often hear from new clients: "My former therapist let me talk and talk, but nothing changed" and "In my first session with you, we got more done than in all my previous therapy."
Effective therapy provides deep listening as well as a here-and-now, action-oriented approach. Half of healing comes from feeling things through and upgrading our narrative and paradigm. The other half comes from doing things differently - now.

What saves a person is to take a step. Then another step. It is always the same step, but you have to take it.
- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
When we don't take action, things will usually stay the same or get worse. Taking action is the most powerful way to break through the sense of being stuck.
If you're ready to take a step, message me and let's talk about what's going on in your world.
Michael is the wisest and most effective guide I have ever seen. I went to see him in part because of a long-term painful compulsion. He was the first person to really help me get to the root of it. Michael is a truly awakened and compassionate individual and I left every session feeling like I have new awareness and understanding. Through our work I have learned to create far less suffering for myself.
