Hello! My name is Arielle Alford and I am a Pre-Licensed Professional based out of New York City.
Are you looking for a safe place to open up and share your personal story? I will work with you to become your best self and provide coping mechanisms for dealing with daily hassles, anxiety, depression, feelings of uncertainty, and familial problems.
I work collaboratively with my clients to identify desired goals and help meet them where they are in their journey. I know how challenging and overwhelming change can feel, and I am here to support my clients every step of the way. I am qualified to work with adults, children (6 to 10), preteens and teens. Working together, I will provide you with the tools to become your best self!!
Every client’s story is different. My specialties include but are not limited to families, children, and adolescents, anxiety, depression, and stress. I am also trained in helping people with ADHD, life transitions, grief, and school issues. I encourage my clients to be their most authentic self to build greater self-appreciation and awareness in practice. Together, we will create a path to reaching your goals using past experiences as motivation.
My approach is empathetic and warm, creating a safe space where clients can feel supported and understood. I encourage you to come to your session with an open mind. A few therapies I use in my practice include: Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Integrative, Mindfulness-Based (MBCT), and positive psychology. I am equipped to meet my clients where they are at and uphold a collaborative and client-centered therapeutic process. Together, we will work to make life-long changes in your life.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and someone from our Help Desk will reach out to you.
