Hello! My name is Tracy Vadakumchery, and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor based out of Brooklyn, New York. I’ve been in practice for 5 years and am an alumni of Columbia University’s Teachers College. Currently, I am accepting new clients for in-person therapy in Cincinnati or secure online counseling from the comfort of your home.
Life is filled with ups and downs, but if you feel overwhelmed, you are not alone. In a city of millions of people, there are many who feel similarly. You may think it is hopeless to overcome your sadness and worry, but what if I told you that they actually say something really positive and beautiful about you? You have high standards and you won’t settle for less than your best. You are aware of your flaws so that you can work on being better. You care about how others perceive you and value your reputation. For so long, your depression and anxiety have been survival skills for everyday life. Your shortcomings are your strengths.
I am a Level 2 TEAM-CBT therapist helping humans discover that these feelings are essential for thriving in life! I support you in “dialing down” your emotions to a breathable level. Weekly homework accompanies sessions to build on this, but don’t be hard on yourself! It takes patience and discipline. I can be your guide!
Let’s take it one step at a time. 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 - $185, and can be paid with American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Visa, a Health Savings Account, and an ACH Bank transfer. I accept the following insurance plans: Aetna, Harvard Pilgrim, Optum, Oscar Health, Oxford, and UnitedHealthcare UHC | UBH.
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.
