Hello! My name is Emma Giordano and I am a Mental Health Counselor based out of New York City. Discovering your inner strengths and drawing on them to create change and achieve your goals is my definition of empowerment. It is all about calling on your true potential to take control of your life and transform it into what you want it to be.
My Philosophy is that I believe every person holds the power inside of them to create the change they seek. My goal as your counselor is to help you uncover that power and direct it towards the paths that will lead you to a more fulfilling life. By having someone to unconditionally support you through the obstacles, you will realize you are more capable than you originally gave yourself credit for.
During my sessions, I take a person-centered approach to counseling. This means that our sessions are focused on your wants, needs, and goals. My intention is to individually shape our sessions to help you get what you want from this experience, not to force you into a box in which you don’t fit. I view my clients holistically, acknowledging the ways our biology, different identities, and past experiences impact our lives and our worldview. Our work together will be geared towards gaining self-awareness, challenging negative thoughts and behaviors, and exploring effective coping skills to manage your stressors.
Being open and vulnerable can be uncomfortable and scary, but my office is a safe space for you to share your thoughts and feelings without judgement. I want to hear what you have to say and meet you exactly as you are. Your story isn’t over – it’s just beginning. Let’s work together to better understand yourself, accomplish your goals, and create the life you want to live.
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.
