I've had one fabulous therapist who was dedicated and true to his craft and I've had a therapist who was bored, annoyed, and mainly concerned about paperwork and insurance. Dr. David Lai is unfortunately the latter. During our sessions, he would request that we spend 15-20 minutes of the $160/hour session silently meditating. I enjoy meditating, mostly at home or at the SF Buddhist Temple (on Bartlett street), but it was frustrating that he was adamant about doing this during our session. He was condescending towards my reluctance rather than open and respectful of it. It was a very odd experience working with Dr. Lai and I feel it's very important to share this with other potential clients looking for a quality therapist.

Been seeing him for over 3 years. Great with LGBT and Asian-American identity issues. Very few therapists in the Bay Area has the expertise in both of these areas.

Don't get stuck with a therapist that insurance assigns. I went out of network just to see Dr. Lai. He's now located in right on Market Street in a transit-friendly location; very convenient.
