Hello! My name is Ariel Zeigler and I am a psychologist based out of New York City.
You are allowed to live a life that feels joyful, meaningful, and fulfilling. It may not always feel this way, but you are in fact capable of creating the life that you desire and that you deserve. Are you tired of feeling stuck? Are you curious about why you make certain choices? Do you want to make a change, but maybe don’t know where to start? Therapy will be a space for you to explore your personal experiences and gain awareness, develop agency and authenticity, and create the change you desire. There is bravery and strength in the ability to look inward, be honest and open, and dedicate yourself to your own well-being.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who works with individuals and couples in NYC. I specialize in anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, and life transitions – whether those be due to phase of life, loss, or chronic medical illness. I am also trained to work with people dealing with alcohol use, elderly persons disorders, personality disorders, infertility, parenting, racial identity, self esteem, sleep or insomnia, sports performance, and suicidal ideation.
I practice collaboratively, inclusively, and fully from the notion of meeting individuals where they are at. I have experience working with people diagnosed with HIV / AIDS, those with immune-disorders, single mothers, members of the LGBTQI community, individuals diagnosed with cancer, BIPOC, and veterans.
Through our work together, you will be able to: learn or strengthen existing tools to help you navigate life’s challenges, gain control over your life, find a greater sense of meaning and purpose, and better navigate challenges surrounding new or chronic health diagnoses. Therapy is a space where you can be your full, authentic self. Let's do this together.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We work with your therapist to obtain all the information needed to file your claims. Then we file them electronically each week.
You only need to make sure we have your most updated insurance information. You don’t need to do anything else!
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 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.
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.
You will receive your reimbursement by check. Some insurers combine payments for multiple sessions and others send one check per session.
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.
We’re glad to answer any questions you have. Email us at email@example.com and someone from our Help Desk will reach out to you.
