Diversity, justice, and equity are more than just words at BALANCE.

Pioneering new levels of eating disorder treatment

Upholding the highest standards of care while continuing to expand our reach is at the forefront of BALANCE.

A company is only as strong as its culture and community. Our dedication to inclusion is unwavering– spanning across race, gender, size, age, religion, sexual identity, and experience.

As an equal-opportunity employer, BALANCE is determined to promote diversity and inclusion year-round.


Financial Accessibility

BALANCE is a New York State OMH licensed Mental Health Clinic and Licensed Telehealth Facility.

As a part of our initiative to make BALANCE’s care more accessible, we obtained our OMH licensure. Our clients can now receive an increased insurance reimbursement via out-of-network benefits. For those in need, BALANCE has also donated, and continues to donate, over $750,000 of pro bono services and offers scholarships for treatment through Project HEAL.

Our commitment to inclusion and accessibility extends beyond our facility to the education and practice within our field. BALANCE happily refers to our BIPOC-identifying referral network and sponsors both the Anti-Diet Dietetic Students organization and BIPOC nutrition students through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Embark on the path to healing in our safe and supportive treatment environment.

Affirmative Care

At BALANCE, we believe that true healing happens when we embrace one another’s unique identities and gifts. That is why we are dedicated to inclusive care and creating a safe space for our clients to recover.


Statistics show that the LGBTQIA+ community experiences a higher prevalence of eating disorders than the general population. At BALANCE our staff and clients’ gender and sexual identities are affirmed, respected, and celebrated.


All of our staff utilize a Health At Every Size approach, meaning that body size is not an indicator of health. Our treatment model does not change based on body size, ensuring all clients receive the same quality of care without weight or BMI bias.


BALANCE is an ADA-compliant mental health facility. Our facility provides wheelchair and mobility-aid accessibility, accessible restroom facilities, and many other equal-access accommodations.


Our staff is trained in the most up-to-date and supportive methods for treating neurodiverse clients, such as those with autism or ADHD.


The BIPOC community is largely underrepresented in eating disorder recovery and media messaging. At BALANCE, we acknowledge this gap and strive towards culturally-informed and responsive care. We are, and always will be, committed to taking an anti-racist stance.
