Create Real Change

Helping you and your family live the lives you want and deserve.

When you look at your family, you can’t help but feel a bit burnt out.

If it’s not a call from your child’s school or coming home to a withdrawn teenager, it’s missing the gym again and having to deal with everything at home.

You know that you and your family are capable of more. That each of you has dreams and passions inside you that are within your grasp. But you also know that life feels a bit like an obstacle course, and working hard to get through the maze is keeping all of you from being the people you want to be.


Like you’re not able to keep your own life on course let alone those of the ones you love.

It’s incredibly frustrating to know you, your child, or your family is on the wrong path. Even though you’re invested in bringing about real transformation in you and your family’s lives, you’re still not sure how to make the changes that are going to help you find direction.


Our Mission

At Simi Psychological Group, our mission is to reach the true root of your struggles so you can create real lasting change in you and your family’s lives. We know you have full control to live the life you want and deserve, which will then ripple into our community and the world.

Dr. Danial is an amazing psychologist. He is so kind, caring and really connects with his patients. He is very sensitive to the needs of parents as well. He is very gentle in his approach, but yet is effective, and truly has a natural ability to connect with children.

Simi Psychological Group had been a wonderful help to our marriage.

Five yellow stars

Simi Psychological Group had been a wonderful help to our marriage. My husband and I were playing out unhealthy patterns that had me thinking divorce was the only solution. SPG has helped us break those patterns. They gave us new and healthy ways to communicate, parent, and deal with daily stressors. I credit SPG for not only saving our marriage but also helping to make it stronger and better than ever.

Professional, educated, trustworthy, non-judgemental, ideal "devil's advocate", understanding and kind.

About gave up on ever receiving proper cognitive (talk) therapy within 50 miles and 5 years ago was referred to this new office. Thank you Dr. Novak & Dr. Danial. Good cognitive therapy during difficult times is better than taking a pill or going for a walk!

I enjoyed my time so much I came back for several months

Five yellow stars

At first, I thought I would only come in for a session or two to get some advice for helping me manage my anger but I enjoyed my time so much I came back for several months to improve all aspects of mental health.

I've had such a warm experience working with the therapists at Simi Psychological group.

Five yellow stars

I recommend this group for anyone looking to get some real and valuable support and growth!

They are really the best in the area!

Five yellow stars

My experience with Simi Psychological Group has been nothing short of great! The professional staff managed by Dr. Novak and her team assisted one of our family members through a very difficult time in their lives. At first, we were a bit concerned that they were out of network but they are well worth it! They were caring, compassionate and most importantly professional throughout every step of the way. They are really the best in the area!

Sarah's empathy and drive to help you are genuine

Five yellow stars

Sarah Parsons is not only an incredibly talented professional and confidant, but she is also one of the most kind hearted and compassionate people I have ever met. She makes you feel heard and understood as a unique individual without any form of judgment. More importantly, from the first few minutes of speaking with her, you know that Sarah’s empathy and drive to help you are genuine. With Sarah’s continued guidance and support, I feel much more confident about being able to navigate any stressor that life may throw at me.

Paige is an amazing therapist

Five yellow stars

Paige is an amazing therapist. She was able to guide me through my emotions allowing me to have a clearer understanding of myself. Her unique therapeutic style provided me with feelings of safety to share. Through her support I am better capable of managing my anxieties and my interpersonal relationships.

I would refer anyone to schedule a session with him

Five yellow stars

Oriyan is a great therapist to work with. He is kind, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. I would refer anyone to schedule a session with him.

Oriyan was instrumental in helping me understand some key aspects about my own self!

Five yellow stars

Oriyan asked me key questions about this issue and helped me come to terms with the truth and many other things. He nudged (as in forced) me in directions that I did not want to go (but looking back, am so thankful that he did). In the process, I came to the conclusion that I need more sessions and need to talk more about stuff. Oriyan was instrumental in helping me understand some key aspects about my own self! As a result of therapy with Oriyan, I think my outlook, goals and perspective have gained clarity and I am very happy about it. Thank you, Oriyan!

Kaidi Liu makes you feel heard without any judgment

Five yellow stars

Originally I was nervous coming, but Kaidi Liu makes you feel heard without any judgment. She is compassionate and professional. With Kaidi’s guidance, I feel much easier to deal with my stress and anxiety. Thanks!
