DBT for Eating Disorders and Addictions

DBT for Eating Disorders & Addictions

I’d like to introduce you to Rebecca Sculley, who is a Licensed Professional Counselor and an EDIT™ Certified III – Eating Disorder Treatment Clinician. I supervised Rebecca while she was working towards licensure, and co-facilitated some of her first DBT Skills Groups. She is a knowledgeable and compassionate therapist, who is passionate about helping people thrive during life transitions. She wrote this article to inform people about one of her DBT groups, and although that date has passed, please read this article to learn more about how DBT can help you. You can contact Rebecca about the current individual and group sessions she holds (see bottom of article).

My name is Rebecca Sculley, and one of my primary methods of treatment is Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™, and I am an EDIT™ Certified III – Eating Disorder Treatment Clinician.  In addition, I have expertise in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and its specific application to eating disorders and other addictions.  Exactly what is DBT, and how can it support you on your journey of recovery from eating disorders?  

DBT for Eating Disorders has many benefits. Many of my clients report symptoms such as “Emotional Eating,” “Compulsive Overeating,” “Uncontrollable Food Cravings,” “Sugar Addiction,” and other behaviors associated with Binge Eating Disorder.  DBT Skills have been shown to be highly effective for the treatment of addictive behaviors, and my clients report great success in reducing their impulse to engage in eating disorder behaviors as a means of coping. 

DBT Skills are also effective to overcome self-harm behaviors and recover from sexual traumas, which can often be the root cause of eating disorders and addictions.  Perhaps you’ve heard about DBT, and you’re looking for a DBT Skills Group or individual sessions to learn DBT Skills.  Or maybe you’re new to DBT, but you’d like to give it a try.  My unique application of DBT to eating disorder recovery might be just what you’ve been looking for!
