Manage Stress

Childhood can be stressful and tough for kids and parents. Our team of compassionate therapists have experience working with children and families who are deaf or hard of hearing and can help young people develop healthy coping skills to manage stress and find ways to move through difficulties to a more positive future.

Improve Relationships

Relationships are a two-way street. Our team can help children and youth strengthen healthy relationships with their peers, families, and communities.


Mental health concerns can feel debilitating. Our experienced team can help young people experiencing hearing loss re-engage in activities such as school, work, volunteering, and socializing.

Build a hopeful path forward 

Everyone needs help sometimes and seeking help is a sign of resilience and strength. Children and teens struggling with mental health issues can find the culturally and linguistically sensitive care they need to move forward. Deaf and Hard of Hearing Mental Health services can support young people with a wide range of concerns, such as depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, acting-out behaviors, school adjustments problems, bullying, isolation, difficulty dealing with loss or change, traumatic events, suicidal ideation, and self-harm behaviors. We all struggle sometimes and finding the right mix of supports and skills can be a life changer. 

Our team is made up of dedicated, highly trained professionals who are fluent in American Sign Language (ASL), familiar with deaf culture, and committed to helping families through challenging times. Our therapists have a deep understanding of the physical and mental health needs of Deaf, Deafblind, and Hard of Hearing children and how these needs influence school and family life. 

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Mental Health offers intensive therapy, skill building, and rehabilitative services to help improve school performance, increase school attendance, and foster healthy relationships. Counseling focuses on building a young person’s strengths and gaining skills to be successful in school, at home, and in the community. 

Every child and family are unique, which is why we never use a one-size-fits-all approach. A compassionate therapist works with each family to establish a care plan that is adapted to fit the needs of the child and family, teaming with them to build a hopeful path forward.
