Baker Family Emotional Health
and Wellness Center
We recognize that making the decision to
seek help is an important first step and
perhaps has been a thought that
you have been contemplating for some
time. The decision to come and seek
counseling – either for yourself, with
your partner or spouse, or for your child
or adolescent – is not always an easy one,
but it can be an exciting time and
an opportunity to change your life.
The Baker Family Emotional Health and Wellness Center at CHC is one of New York City’s premier providers of mental health psychotherapeutic and psychiatric services for adults and children. We are one of the few multidisciplinary NYS Office of Mental Health licensed outpatient services with
therapists fluent in American Sign Language, established to support primarily, but not exclusively,
the Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, and Deaf-Blind communities and their families. In our private and confidential offices or via teletherapy, we will work with our clients and their loved ones to determine the best possible road to emotional and psychological well-being.
The Emotional Health and Wellness Center is dedicated to improving the lives children and families that are impacted by hearing loss. We create a therapeutic environment promoting the most positive emotional development and embedded in the belief that children need to feel respected, valued, able to build trust, love themselves, and feel safe in the world.
