Stress & Anxiety FAQ

What can I expect from stress and anxiety treatments?

At CMHC, our stress and anxiety treatments are tailored to each individual's needs. Initially, you will have a consultation with one of our therapists to discuss your symptoms, concerns, and goals. Based on this, we'll develop a personalized treatment plan that may include individual therapy, group sessions, workshops, or mindfulness coaching. Our approach focuses on understanding the root causes of your stress and anxiety, equipping you with effective coping mechanisms, and supporting you through your journey to improved mental health.

How do I know if I need professional help for my stress and anxiety?

If you find that your stress or anxiety is significantly impacting your daily life, relationships, work performance, or overall well-being, it might be time to seek professional help. Symptoms to look out for include persistent worry, difficulty concentrating, irritability, sleep disturbances, and physical symptoms like headaches or fatigue. We encourage anyone struggling with these issues to reach out for a consultation.

Does CMHC accept insurance for stress and anxiety treatments?

Yes, CMHC is paneled with Carefirst BCBS, Cigna, and Johns Hopkins EHP for stress and anxiety treatments. However, coverage can vary based on your specific plan and the services you require. We recommend contacting your insurance company to verify your coverage details. Additionally, our administrative team is available to assist you with insurance-related questions and can help you understand your benefits.

How long does treatment for stress and anxiety typically last?

The duration of treatment for stress and anxiety varies depending on the individual's specific needs, goals, and progress. Some clients experience significant improvements within a few sessions, while others may engage in ongoing therapy for longer periods. During your initial consultation and throughout your treatment, we will work with you to assess your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.

How do I get started with treatment at CMHC?

Getting started with treatment at CMHC is simple. Fill out the Intake Form to Schedule an initial consultation. During this consultation, we will discuss your concerns, answer any questions you may have, and outline potential treatment options. From there, we'll guide you through the next steps to begin your journey toward managing stress and anxiety.

Are there any self-help strategies I can start with before my first session?

While professional guidance is crucial for effectively managing stress and anxiety, there are several self-help strategies you can begin to implement immediately. These include practicing mindfulness and meditation, establishing a regular exercise routine, maintaining a healthy diet, ensuring you get enough sleep, and trying to reduce known stressors in your life. We also offer a range of online resources and recommend "Taming the Anxious Mind" by Heidi Schreiber-Pan for further reading.
