We are very excited to share updates regarding our recent partnership with Nystrom & Associates! Our company name has changed from Morningsong Therapy to Nystrom & Associates starting in January 2023. Nystrom & Associates has been providing mental health services to clients across Minnesota since 1991. Our partnership with Nystrom & Associates allows us to continue to expand services in our community. Our commitment to excellent client service remains our top priority. We are looking forward to continuing to serve you.

Providing quality care for our clients is our utmost priority and will continue uninterrupted at Morningsong Therapy. Your care will be with the same providers and at the same locations and hours of operation.

No, you will continue to schedule by calling into the office or you may request an appointment online. Please select Minneapolis as the Clinic Location.

Yes! We will continue to provide visits via telehealth for the foreseeable future. For our virtual visits, we use a HIPAA compliant platform called Lifesize. Your provider will send you a link and you can open in your web browser to start the session or download the app on your smartphone. For each session, you will receive a new link (extension number) via email. For psychiatry appointments, you will also receive the link via text message. These links are sent from donotreply@nystromcounseling.com so you may need to check your spam folder if you have not received your link in your inbox.

If your insurance was in-network prior to the partnership, it will remain so. If you would like to make a payment, you may call into our office or go online by following the instructions on your statement. Our Patient Financial Services Team is your main point of contact for any questions about insurance, billing, or payments and payment plans.

As we transition, you may receive statements from both Morningsong Therapy and Nystrom & Associates. Once our systems are fully integrated, you will only receive your statement from Nystrom & Associates.

You will receive multiple appointment reminders via different methods. You will receive an email 5 days prior, an automated phone call 3 days prior, and a text message 2 days and 1 day/same day prior to your appointment. All methods do give you the option to cancel your appointment in the event that you need do so.  However, if your appointment is within 24 hours, you will need to contact our office to cancel your appointment. The email reminders are sent from reminders@relatient.net so you may need to check your spam folder if you have not received your email reminder in your inbox.
