MEET OUR EMBEDDED MENTAL HEALTH SPECIALISTS! Both currently accept telehealth appointments.
Did you know that taking care of your mental/emotional health is just as important to a long, healthy life as taking care of your physical health? Mental health and physical health are closely connected; mental illnesses, such as depression or anxiety, can affect not only your ability to participate in daily healthy behaviors, but can also create problems with your physical health.
Your primary care provider knows the importance of treating both mental health and physical health concerns concurrently. As a result, BW Primary Care is now proud to offer outpatient counseling services on-site. Your clinician and our in-house mental health provider can work together to develop a tailored treatment plan, with the goal of strengthening both your physical and mental health, helping you feel better both inside and out.
Cedar Ridge Counseling Centers, LLC has been serving the Baltimore Metro Areas for more than 20 years and we are now pleased to be working directly with your doctors at BW Primary.
Cedar Ridge is a group of seasoned mental health providers who are committed to providing quality mental health services to you and your family. At CRCC you can expect to be treated with dignity, respect, and compassion.
