Our Partnerships

The Healing Connection is licensed by the NYS Office of Mental Health. We work collaboratively with many health care professionals and specialists in our region, including:  

The Western NY Comprehensive Care Center for Eating Disorders*  (WNYCCCED)

The WNYCCCED serves as the hub for eating disorder services in the 30-county Western New York Region. Directed out of the University of Rochester School of Nursing, the Center is a partnership between the University of Rochester School of Nursing and the Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders Program at Golisano Children’s Hospital. It is one of three legislatively mandated comprehensive care centers for eating disorders funded by the New York State Department of Health.

Highland Hospital Weight Management and Lifestyle Center

Highland’s Weight Management and Lifestyle Center provides weight loss and weight management support (including bariatric evaluations) with medical oversight from a specialist physician, individual coaching from a registered dietitian, and access to tailored behavioral health and physical activity programs. For more information, call 585-341-9899 or visit their website.

REDO – Rochester Eating Disorder Organization

At Rochester Eating Disorders Organization our experienced support group facilitators have been helping adults make peace with food since 1982. We offer support groups for individuals with symptoms of anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder and compulsive overeating. Through weekly support groups REDO educates individuals on how to become more aware of their body’s own hunger signals, as well as better connected to their emotional experiences. We focus on helping group members understand the underlying causes of an unhealthy relationship with food so that they can establish new, more effective coping skills and support systems. REDO is not your traditional support program and we frequently incorporate the creative arts and mindfulness practices into sessions. We operate from an “anti-diet” philosophy with the goal of emotional and physical wellness for our group members.

Pet Connections – Ontario Arc

Connecting animals and people is what Pet Connections is all about. Innovative and groundbreaking, Pet Connections combines the healing power of pets with interactive skill building to provide a unique experience for each person.

In addition to our on-site clinic, we continue to expand our outpatient services through successful partnerships with area schools. We currently offer counseling services to students in the Rush-Henrietta School District. Our intake coordinator (585-641-0281) handles the admissions and insurance process for students in the outpatient program; in most cases, insurance covers these services.
