Hello! My name is Melanie Palmietto, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor based out of New York City. I am a Mercy College alumni, and am certified in Integrative Energy Healing and Breathwork by Millana Snow, founder of Wellness Official/Certified. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I currently conduct both in-person and virtual therapy sessions.
I am so happy you are here. You are not alone on this journey. You have found yourself here for a reason and deserve to start the healing process that therapy has to offer. We will work towards your goals and deepen your connection with yourself. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relational distress, trauma, life transitions, body image or food distress I am here to listen, guide, and support you. I believe having awareness of your thoughts, behaviors, and relational patterns creates impactful insight.
We will work together to tailor the therapeutic process to your specific needs. I have experience with individual, family, and group therapy for adolescents and adults. I am also trained to work with Native Americans, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. I will help you address your experiences through a person centered approach, holistic approach, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
I work to create a nonjudgmental, flexible, and compassionate environment. Wherever you find yourself on your journey, I will meet you there and provide a safe space to help you grow. Please do not hesitate to reach out. I greatly look forward to hearing from you. If you are interested in working together please email or call me to schedule a free 15 minute consultation to see if we’re a good fit.
Costs for each therapy session are on a sliding scale ranging from $150 - $225. We will be able to verify your health insurance coverage for our sessions when you arrange your first visit.
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 email@example.com and someone from our Help Desk will reach out to you.
