Ariel Sheeger


Hello! My name is Ariel Sheeger and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor based out of New Orleans. I’ve been in practice for 10 years, and I am a California Institute of Integral Studies alumni. I also received my Masters in Clinical Mental Health from Loyola University.

You may have felt disconnected from your partner for a while now. Maybe you keep having the same old arguments with no resolution? Or  maybe you all have drifted apart and haven’t had a real conversation because everything feels bigger than you both can handle? Maybe you feel stuck or lost, or even unable to identify what is wrong with your relationship or how it really started? It can be so painful and disheartening to find that the person you loved is unreachable and the more you want to reconnect, the more difficult it seems.

If you want to find a way to reignite your connection, be more yourself WITH your partner, learn how to argue in better and more productive ways, find some passion and romance, and find a way to be truly intimate in your relationship-- I can help. I specialize in assisting individuals and couples in dealing with relationship issues, marital and premarital challenges, and codependency. I’m also trained to help with infidelity, self esteem, sex therapy, and sex work couples.

I have experience working with individuals from the LGBTQI community, people  diagnosed with HIV / AIDS, those in open/non-monogamous relationships, sex workers and BIPOC.

It is hard work, but together we can strengthen your partnership in ways that are empowering, authentic, and sustainable. If not now, when? You cannot break up with yourself, so begin finding the best in you and your partner to emerge from this hard time even better than you started! Book now or get a free 15 min consult  @

Costs for each session are on a sliding scale ranging from: $200 - $300, and can be paid with American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Paypal, Venmo, and Visa.

Know You’re Covered

Before your therapy visit, check your coverage with our Peace of Mind Calculator, which estimates how much you'll be reimbursed once you hit your deductible or out-of-pocket max. 

No More Superbills

Remember superbills, those long invoices you got from your therapist? How about claim forms? You don’t need either of those. We’ll handle your claims electronically and file them for free.

Track Your Reimbursements

Check the status of your claims with our free Client Portal, which gives you a real-time window into the reimbursement process so you don’t have to worry if the check is in the mail.

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.
