Professional statement

Damon Dodge is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working with clients in Los Angeles, CA and Denver, CO. He works primarily with adult men ages 18-65 dealing with work stress, social anxiety and depression. His other areas of focus include driven professionals in high-pressure environments, 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 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.

Damon is based in Hollywood, CA and is also meeting remotely with clients all over California & Colorado. He looks forward to meeting you.


Message to clients

Some therapists focus on “problems,” “disorders” or what’s “wrong” with people—I do things a little differently. By helping you identify your strengths and supporting your capability to design and achieve new outcomes for yourself, we help you become the primary source of positive change in your life.

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, discover possibilities and make new choices to create the life you want.

You are worth the investment—contact me today to get you back on the path to your best self.
