Counseling

Cedar-Ridge-Counseling-Center.jpgAre you, or someone you love, feeling depressed, anxious, bullied, etc.?
 
Did you know that taking care of your child’s mental/emotional health is just as important to a long, healthy life as taking care of their physical health? Mental health and physical health are closely connected; mental illnesses, such as depression or anxiety, can affect not only the ability to participate in daily healthy behaviors, but can also create problems with physical health.
 
Your doctor knows the importance of treating both mental health and physical health concerns concurrently. As a result, Maryland Pediatric Group is now proud to offer outpatient counseling services on-site. Your child’s doctor and our in-house mental health provider can work together to develop a tailored treatment plan, with the goal of strengthening both your child’s physical and mental health, helping them 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 Maryland Pediatric Group.
 
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.
