Hi, I'm Dr. Michael Damian.

I will be honored to help you with your present concerns. 

Many of us feel stuck in painful feelings and dysfunctional relationships. We need some help slowing down, exploring our thoughts and developing new skills for living well. Counseling provides the space for that.


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 offer plenty of guidance and feedback. Clients often tell me that more happened in one session with me than in all their previous therapy. I make therapy practical and life-changing. 

I help my clients develop an inspired and empowering narrative for their lives. With greater self-awareness you can live from your most authentic self, have happier relationships and find renewed purpose and vision for your life.   

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 counseling.

You're ready for therapy if:

  • You've felt stuck, anxious or depressed for a while now. 

  • You've tried to figure things out on your own but it hasn't worked.

  • You feel unsettled about your relationship lately and need objective feedback from a relationship expert.

  • You sense you have unresolved trauma or grief about difficult experiences that you've never really dealt with. 

  • Your life isn't quite where you want it to be, and you know it could be better.

  • You feel ready to invest your time and money in a self-care process that will change your life for the better. 

If you don't take action, things will probably stay the same or get worse. Taking action is hard at first but you'll soon feel better you did.


You don't have to wait another day to get help. Invest in a month of well-being with a 4-Session subscription.

What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step. It is always the same step, but you have to take it.

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.
