About CBT Baltimore

Our treatment approach is firmly grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), evidence-based treatment supported by research. Each clinician brings experience and specific training for different populations and disorders. We pride ourselves on our warm and welcoming, yet focused environment–a space conducive for us to create a plan to get you to where you want to be.

Our Mission.

It’s not about changing the thoughts. It’s about changing the relationship we have with our thoughts.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Decades of research support the use of CBT, the gold-standard psychological intervention.

Financing

CBT Baltimore is an out of network provider and not directly covered by insurance. Everyone receiving services with us pays the fees out of pocket. However, the majority of our clients successfully secure out of network reimbursement from their insurance provider. We strongly recommend reaching out to your insurance carrier to evaluate your out of network coverage.
Recognizing the economical hurdle some may face, we offer financing through a third party, Prosper.

To check your eligibility, visit patientfinancing.com and insert provider code “032700”.

Should you have any questions about the financing option, please contact Prosper at 888-602-6066.
