Justin Yong


Do you find yourself feeling like a cog in a machine, stuck in a joyless career? Do you feel like you’re moving through life on autopilot, unable to take meaningful action? Do you feel married to your work, but wish you had more time to spend with your loved ones?

My goal is to empower you to be more present for the moments and people that truly matter to you, and find equilibrium in your work and personal life. I provide individual therapy that is collaborative, warm, empathetic, and validating. I find joy in helping people who are ready to do the work. Together we’ll innovate and reimagine new ways of thinking so that you are more present and more aligned with what means most to you. Together, we’ll take you off autopilot and put you back in the driver’s seat.

I integrate elements of evidence-based mindfulness practices, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to equip you with practical tools and skills to help you find balance between work and play. I also draw from LGBTQIA+ Affirmative Therapy and Multicultural Counseling to curate a space that is safe and non-judgemental. Whether you’re a first-generation American struggling with acculturation or looking to cultivate deeper understanding of your identities, you’ll learn how to make meaningful change in mindful and meaningful directions that energize you.

In these truly unprecedented times, I also offer counseling for those who are grieving. Everyone has faced a loss, whether it’s the passing of a loved one or loss of meaning, direction, safety, or sense of feeling grounded. Grief is very much like a fingerprint. It manifests differently for everyone, but that doesn’t mean you have to go through it alone.

If you need support, I’d love to get to know you and learn how I can help. Please reach out to schedule a complimentary 30-minute phone consultation with me today.

I also offer therapy in Cantonese.

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.
