Hello! I work with tweens, teens, and millennials to help them go from isolation, sadness, dropping grades, excessive worry and difficulty managing life/family stress to feeling more confident, happier, able to manage school/life, hanging out with friends on the weekends, and deeper relationships with family. I love working with people who feel like they just don't fit in and helping them to find that confidence to be themselves. I also love helping people to connect more to their friends and/or family and to build those natural support systems.

I specialize in EMDR, DBT and Group Therapy.
I believe that all people have an innate ability and desire for growth. Some of us just need that someone that they can talk to. Most of us think we are strong enough to be able to work it out on our own. Unfortunately, that is not always true. We tend to be our own worst enemy. Sometimes, a different perspective is all it takes. Many of us live life in accordance to our "belief system". If we carry a negative self view or the world, how can we expect to live life to it's fullest. We are working to heal our inner child through self-compassion, understanding, non-judgement and validation of self and others.

Drawing from multiple disciplines including neuropsychology, cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness principles, Lurian research, attachment theory, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
Dr. Daniel Hai is a licensed clinical neuropsychologist who combines the latest research with the knowledge he has gained in his years of practice and lifelong study of both western and eastern psychotherapy treatments. His practice incorporates a humanistic approach that recognizes the uniqueness of each individual. Custom assessments and treatment plans are one way this approach is evident in his practice. Instead of treating a diagnosis, Dr. Hai’s treatment plans consider the whole person from a holistic view that seeks to identify and resolve the root of the problem rather than just treat symptoms.

I provide a safe, supportive relationship where you can explore issues and grow without judgment. I draw from several psychotherapeutic approaches and use what clients are comfortable with yet challenged by such as: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, Attachment theory, Psychodynamic therapy, group psychotherapy, existential/spiritual exploration, mindfulness meditation and addiction relapse prevention and recovery. I only see clients by video. I find it just as effective as face-to-face and you have the comfort of home and no traffic.

Having completed trainings in Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapies, I enjoy using practical interventions to help clients set realistic objectives towards desired goals.
I see teens, adults, couples, and families who are seeking support in working through issues relating to depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, substance abuse, co-occuring disorders, relational discord/dynamics, and difficult life transitions. I'm especially interested in helping others heal core conflicts and internal struggles while offering non-judgmental compassion and encouragement, in order to support others in being their true selves. I've adopted a holistic approach to growth and progress as I encourage others to accept and enhance parts of self.

What type of Encino mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Encino?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
