Dear Valued Client:

We regret to inform you that The Zen Life Wellness Community LLC will cease operations on December 31st 2018.  This has been a hard decision, after a few good years of service, but it is time to bring the business gradually to an end.

You may be wondering if you can continue to see your current provider.  This is likely.  All of our individual therapists are continuing with their own private practices – many of them in our same location at 143 Main Street!  They are also all in the process of applying for individual contracts with insurance companies and hope to be in-network with your insurance by the end of December (if they are not already).  Please talk with your current therapist as we’d all love to see you continue a productive relationship.

If you are still seeing a therapist with us, your therapist will work with you in the days and weeks ahead to wrap-up therapy and suggest next steps.  This would be a good time to start thinking about transitioning services elsewhere in the community.

We are required by contract to refer you to therapists in your insurance network (if we are seeing you as an in-network provider).  You may obtain a new therapist in your network by going to the appropriate following link:

Aetna (and Meritain Health): https://www.aetna.com/individuals-families/find-a-doctor.html

Beacon Health (Value Options): https://www.beaconhealthoptions.com/find-a-provider/

CareFirst BCBS: https://member.carefirst.com/mos/#/fadpublic/search/home

Cigna (and QualCare): https://apps.cignabehavioral.com/web/consumer.do#/findAtherapist

Johns Hopkins Healthcare EHP:


Johns Hopkins Healthcare USFHP:


Some insurance companies may require us to transfer your records to a specific in-network provider of their choosing and inform you.  We will be back in touch if this occurs.

Records Custodian:

Maryland law requires that we have a records custodian and keep files for the required period in accordance with law.

For patients who were children under age 18: Bess Hauf, 143 Main Street – Rear Building, Reisterstown, MD 21136.

For adults age 18 and over: Michael Reeder, 6400 Baltimore National Pike #205, Catonsville, MD 21228.

Please let us – or your therapist – know if you have questions or concerns.  We have enjoyed working with you as the Zen Life Community, and no doubt will encounter each other again as our various staff continue their careers.


Michael Reeder, LCPC and Lorah Bess Hauf, LCPC
