Sonya Veytsman

Clinical Social Work/Therapist

“Everything can be taken from us but one thing, the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way” — Viktor Frankl.

My name is Sonya Veytsman, and it is my firm belief that we free ourselves to think and act in new ways when we are willing to embrace the exploration of the self and develop insights into the motivations behind our behavior. We will work together to build a shared understanding of the obstacles that you are facing, whether that means improving your interpersonal relationships, exploring your identity/sexuality/spirituality, strengthening your self esteem, finding motivation and success in your career, navigating overwhelming and traumatic experiences, or identifying maladaptive patterns that may be acting as barriers to the life you want.

I offer both short and long term psychotherapy to adolescents and adults seeking assistance with anxiety, mood disorders, mood dysregulation, obsessive thinking, compulsive behavior, ADHD, substance abuse, anger, impulsivity, highly sensitive temperament, and psychoeducation related to psychiatric medication management.

I draw from a combination of evidence-based treatment approaches including CBT, interpersonal, psychodynamic, Gottman, strengths-based, solution-focused, and mindfulness based stress reduction.

In my practice, a combination of training, clinical judgment, and intuition is used to assist you in developing strategies tailored to meeting concrete, measurable goals. My approach is unconditionally supportive, patient, understanding, empathetic and warm. I have experience utilizing a culturally competent and sensitive framework with diverse populations and am fluent in English & Russian.

We will work collaboratively to identify solutions and tools for addressing problems to allow for an overall increase in life-satisfaction and symptom reduction. My hope is that the therapeutic process allows you to discover purpose and meaning, and to develop insight on how to harness your unique strengths to actualize your highest potential.  I truly care and am invested in each individual's journey towards healing & growth and am honored to be a witness to this remarkable process. 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.

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 and someone from our Help Desk will reach out to you.
