Chesapeake Institute for Behavioral Health believes not just in helping individuals overcome difficulties but in helping individuals to thrive and live their best lives.

Chesapeake Institute for Behavioral is a small specialty practice supporting people to get and stay healthy, recover from injury or illness, manage stress, move through trauma, and/or cope with acute and chronic health and medical conditions. Our expert and highly trained clinicians accommodate many psychological health needs and have expertise in treating anxiety, depression, OCD, and trauma. We also have expertise in LGBTQIA affirming care. We pride ourselves in tailoring up-to-date, evidence-based interventions to help efficiently and effectively address your unique concerns.

Prior to obtaining a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, our founder, Dr. Eric Teeters, worked for nearly a decade with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). While Dr. Teeters has changed careers, protecting the environment and mitigating climate change continues to be very important to him. As such, he has partnered up with to ensure the work done by the Chesapeake Institute for Behavioral Health does not further exacerbate climate change. In addition to this partnership, each provider plants one tree for EVERY session at the Chesapeake Institute for Behavioral Health. Not only are our clients working towards bettering themselves, but they are also helping to leave a better world for generations to come!

“On a regular basis I speak with clients about existential dread and feelings of hopelessness and helplessness about the state of our world. Much of the time climate change is mentioned specifically. Hope is important because it can make our present moment less of a burden. If we believe tomorrow might be better, we can bear hardship(s) today. For many of our clients our commitment to the environment is the seed that germinates and begins to give them a renewed sense of hope and forward momentum to a healthier and happier life.” – Eric Teeters, Psy.D., Founder & CEO
