Hello! My name is Lindsay Hayden, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor based out of New York City. I’ve been in practice for 6 Years, and am a Fordham University alumni. I am also certified in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and have been certified by The New York Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy. Currently I offer both in-person and virtual therapy.
Are you feeling unhappy, stuck or overwhelmed? Are you struggling with relationship issues, work stress or challenges with family members? Are you or your loved ones struggling with addiction? Together, we can explore your current behaviors and beliefs and begin to unpack how your experiences from the past may be impeding your ability to live peacefully and purposefully in the present. I will help you relieve your distress, strengthen your inner resources and sense of self and develop more authentic ways of communicating in order to enrich the relationships in your life.
I work with individuals and couples who struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, self esteem, addiction and those curious about understanding attachment styles. The goal of my work is to help you uncover patterns and behaviors that don't suit you anymore and arm you with tools to navigate making small changes and adopting healthier coping skills.
My approach to therapy is active, collaborative and warm. I draw from a variety of modalities to find the most supportive treatment for you as you advance towards where you want to be. I will integrate Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), along with mindfulness and awareness techniques.
If you are interested in working together please email me to schedule a free 15 minute consultation to see if we are a good fit. Costs for each therapy session are on a sliding scale ranging from $225 - $325, and can be paid with American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Visa, Cash, Check, or a Health Savings Account.
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.
