NYC's Emotional Health and
Wellness Support

We have extensive experience and knowledge of specific emotional issues that Deaf, Hard of Hearing or Deafblind people face. We also help individuals, families, couples, and groups who are having difficulty managing their concerns about depression, anxiety, stress, anger, sexuality, or illness, and other conditions. 

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.
