Stress Management

 Stress can have a powerful negative effect on physical and mental health. Fortunately, stress management can reduce the risk of stress-induced illness.

The Maryland Center for Health Psychology provides a variety of services to help clients reduce stress and related anxiety and depression, sleep better, and live a more healthful life. Services for stress management include psychotherapy, and training in progressive muscle relaxation, breathing techniques, and meditation.

Working with your health team

Patients often see Dr. Ralph Raphael, director of the Maryland Center for Health Psychology, for stress management after their medical doctor makes a diagnosis of a stress-related medical condition.
Dr. Raphael then becomes a member of the patient’s health team to assure the best treatment and follow up.


All consultations, evaluations, and treatments are confidential. No information is released without a client’s specific written consent. Confidentiality is the cornerstone of effective treatment and is protected by Federal law.


Dr. Raphael serves as an out-of-network provider for most health insurance plans.

Dr. Ralph Raphael can answer questions regarding fees, insurance issues, and other matters related to stress management.
