About me

My name is Danny El Hassan (M.Ed., M.A.), and I am an LMHC in New York State. I use an integrative approach to treatment including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, existential, and multicultural approaches to help adults and older adults with a variety of issues including anxiety and depression. I also have clinical knowledge of abnormal psychology, mood disturbances, and self harming behavior. I take a strength based approach to the work, and I work with patients for short-term therapy and for longer-term therapy. I focus on unconscious factors to help patients increase self-awareness and insight.

I have experience working with older adults, and I have been published as an author in the Journal of Homosexuality for my contributions to a project on the experiences of LGBT elders. I also have experience researching micro-aggressions experienced by people with disabilities. I have previously worked in Tele-Health and as a phone counselor, including with individuals in crisis. I have found that there are numerous benefits to Tele-Health for patients, including accessibility and convenience.

Danny’s open-mindedness, patience and compassion has helped me through what one could call a very challenging and transformative period in my life. I like that he challenges me to think differently about my problems and doesn’t shy away from what can be very difficult topics. Plus, sometimes I get to say hi to his dog!

Really understanding of my situation, guides me in a way which makes me get along with my issues and not criticize myself.

Danny has been an empathetic and helpful voice in my life. I was skeptical, initially, of using a web-based approach to therapy, but it has been a convenient and useful tool to help overcome some issues I’ve been dealing with recently and I plan on continuing.
