Danny El Hassan


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.

Therapy has been such a healing process and a huge part of that is having a therapist that respects you and genuinely cares about your well being. I feel very grateful to have access to that.
