Salima Mbayame Ndoye

LMFT

Hello! My name is Salima Ndoye, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based out of New York City. I’ve been in practice for 4 years, and am a member of The EMDR International Association. 2020 Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I am offering both in-person and telehealth sessions.

Is anxiety, depression, or anger holding you from enjoying your life? Are having a hard time finding motivation after a breakup or losing a loved one? Are you struggling with your relationships, setting boundaries, or feelings of guilt. As a psychotherapist, my work is driven by the deeply held belief that people get better. Every person has the ability to heal, make connections, and deserve healthy relationships. I can guide you through life's challenges with compassion and respect. My style is interactive and engaging, and I work collaboratively with you to promote the growth and change you desire.

I will use an integrative approach of various psychotherapeutic methodologies in my work incorporating techniques from Cognitive Behavioral therapy, the Gottman Method, Emotion-Focused Therapy, solution-focused, and hope-focused therapy with my clients. My priority is that the work be tailored, depending on what works with your beliefs, values and needs.

It can be difficult to reach out; know that a relationship with the right therapist for you can be eye-opening and healing. I welcome you to come in and answer your yearning for growth and get closer to the person or couple you want to be...to improve the quality of your relationships with yourself and others. I am also bilingual and can conduct therapy in both English and French.

If you are interested in working together please email or call 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 starting at $150 - $200, and can be paid with American Express, Visa, Mastercard, Cash, Check, and Venmo.

FAQs

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.
