Dr. Neale Davis, Executive Director/Durham Office

Dr. Davis enjoys and appreciates the trust people express when sharing their stories. He has been counseling formally since the Bridgehaven office opened, but has been involved in counseling most of his life. He graduated from the University of Georgia in 1982 before working in Atlanta until his wife also graduated from UGA. They both served with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) after getting married. Dr. Davis served with Cru for 28 years before opening up the Bridgehaven Durham office in 2012.

He holds a masters and a doctor of ministry degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary where he studied counseling from a biblical perspective with a balanced application between sin and suffering. He thoroughly enjoys helping people think through a healthy grid as they navigate the struggles of life. His greatest desire is to help those he counsels to understand the relevance of the gospel to their particular struggles.

Dr. Davis specializes in relational areas that include marriage, pre marriage, conflict resolution, parenting, and same sex attraction, as well as emotional issues that include anxiety, men’s issues, and depression. He also has a special love and concern for pastors in their very important shepherding role. In fact, he leads pastors’ mentor group at least once a year.

His wife Bonnie still works with Cru and they have three adult children. The Davises were married in 1984.

  1. Keith Clement
    Executive Director, Raleigh Office

    Keith’s passion in counseling is to see people set free and transformed by the renewing of their minds through the gospel of grace and power of God’s love.  He enjoys helping people discover the good God is working in all of life’s problems and circumstances.  He believes that the gospel understood and applied is God’s plan not only for salvation but also for transformation. Keith sees that the starting point in the Christian walk is the finished work of Christ on the cross, and that in order to know what to do in any situation you have to know who you are. The believer’s identity in Christ is central to all of Keith’s counseling.

    Keith completed his undergraduate degree at The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and received his graduate counseling training at Georgia State University and the Psychological Studies Institute in Atlanta, GA, (Richmont Graduate University),The Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation, Philadelphia, PA., and the Eastern Psychotherapy Society, New York, NY.  Keith served in counseling ministries in Atlanta and New York before returning to his native state of North Carolina and joining the Bridgehaven team. 

    Areas of particular interest include self-image and identity issues, issues specific to men and masculinity, relational conflicts, problems with intimacy, single’s issues, and depression and anxiety.  Keith is committed to a holistic view of mental health that address the mind, body, and spirit, incorporating the truths of Scripture, methods of counseling, and referral to medical specialists as needed.
