Dimitri Mellos


Hello! My name is Dimitri Mellos and I am a licensed clinical psychologist who works with young adults and individuals of every age group in New York City and throughout New York state. I specialize in helping my clients navigate life’s challenges and find fulfillment in their romantic, personal, and professional lives.

My own multicultural identity and extensive background in the arts also inform and guide my practice, and make me particularly attuned to cross-cultural issues as well as issues related to creativity. I have experience helping individuals from multicultural backgrounds who experience identity concerns or acculturation challenges, as well as individuals who are trying to navigate the challenges and frustrations entailed in a career in the creative arts.

I draw from psychodynamic, existential, and attachment-based therapy approaches. My approach is best suited to those not seeking readymade, cookie-cutter answers to life’s dilemmas, but to those who are curious about their inner lives and the complexity of the human condition. There is no set answer in stone but rather a whole, complex person powered by thoughts, emotions, and a sense of self that we can delve into and explore together. By listening to you sensitively and empathically I can help you: hear and understand yourself better, get in touch with, accept, and pursue your true desires, let go of self-defeating behaviors and unlock your full potential, improve your relationship with yourself and others

I am keenly aware that engaging in therapy takes courage, and it’s not always easy to open up to another. I approach each person who comes to see me with genuine interest, acceptance, warmth and compassion, and provide a safe environment in which one’s authentic self can be nurtured and allowed to bloom.

If you are curious and want to learn more about what it might be like to work together, I encourage you to reach out today for a complimentary 30-minute consultation.

I also offer therapy in Greek, my native language.

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 help@meetnirvana.com and someone from our Help Desk will reach out to you.
