Anjali Tekriwal


Hello! My name is Anjali Tekriwal. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor based out of Montclair, New Jersey, and a Fairleigh Dickinson University alum.

We ALL struggle from time to time with handling our emotions, life challenges, and self-identity. Engaging in mental health counseling and trusting a mental health professional to help and assist you with these issues is a wise and brave choice. I believe counseling is about personal growth and wellness. I believe we ALL can benefit from therapy because at the end of the day it is about unloading the emotional baggage we are trying to deal with on a daily basis. There is always a "Silver Lining" in everyday life and embracing challenges - and change.

I specialize in treating individuals, couples, and families dealing with children, parenting, and depression. I am also trained to help people with addiction to technology and social media, anxiety, personality disorders, mood disorders, career counseling, infertility, infidelity, life transitions, pregnancy, self-harming, and suicidal ideation.

I believe that learning to understand, cope with, and move forward from your challenges in life should take place in a safe, judgment-free, and peaceful environment with a mental health therapist you can trust. I have experience in working with individuals of Asian and Hispanic and Latino backgrounds, and members of the LGBTQI community.

Rather than focusing on diagnoses, I focus on helping you find ways to improve your life, minimize stress and worry, and discover the confidence you need to be the best version of yourself. A few therapies I utilize in my practice include: Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Dialectical (DBT), Eclectic, and motivational interviewing.

At the end of the day, we could all use a therapist. I want to break the stigma that mental health carries and I want people to realize there is a "Silver Lining."

Costs for each session are on a sliding scale, and can be paid with American Express, Cash, Check, Discover, Mastercard, and Visa.

What can Nirvana do for me?

We handle your mental health insurance electronically and file your claims for free. We also track the status of your claims and ensure they are processed correctly so you don’t have to worry about paperwork or making frustrating phone calls.

How does Nirvana’s mental health billing service work?

We work with your therapist to obtain all the information needed to file your claims. Then we file them electronically each week.

What do I need to do for Nirvana’s service to work for me?

You only need to make sure we have your  most updated insurance information. You don’t need to do anything else!

Can I check how much I will be reimbursed for therapy?

Nirvana has a free tool called the Peace of Mind Coverage Calculator, which estimates your reimbursement amount at the start of the calendar year, when your deductible has been met, and when your out-of-pocket maximum has been reached. You only need to enter the name of the therapist you’d like to see, along with your name, date of birth, and insurance information.

Once I start therapy, when will I be reimbursed?

Once you have met your deductible, your reimbursement will be mailed to you about 4-6 weeks from the date of your first eligible claim. In some cases, this process can take as long as 90 days.

Where will my reimbursement be sent?

Your reimbursement will be mailed to the address on file with your therapist and your insurer. We recommend verifying your address directly with your insurer.

How will I receive my reimbursement?

You will receive your reimbursement by check. Some insurers combine payments for multiple sessions and others send one check per session.

Can I track the progress of my claims as you process them?

Yes! We offer a free product called the Client Portal, which allows you to do exactly that. You may be invited by your therapist, but you can independently register here. With the client portal, you can view the exact status of your claims and reimbursements.

I have a general question. Can I contact you?

We’re glad to answer any questions you have. Email us at and someone from our Help Desk will reach out to you.
