Treatment and Staff
The eating disorder program at Mended Wing requires an intake with a specialist before being placed into a treatment schedule. There are separate tracks for both adolescents and adults, both of which include group and individual sessions. The group sessions meet in four week cycles, with new clients admitted on a rolling schedule, and are kept fairly small in number. The focus of the groups is on DBT, PTSD and skills training. Additionally, Mended Wing is able to offer online and Skype counseling services.
The adolescent eating disorder program looks at common issues that young people may deal with, like having a positive body image and dealing with the pressures of social media. They work on improving communication and improving family relationships. The adult program also works on body image and making healthy choices, changing the relationship to food and getting rid of negative self talk. Often clients go through more than one cycle of the four week group schedule. Groups meet in the evenings and run for about an hour each week.
Treatment approaches include CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotionally Focused and the Gestalt method. Typically clients meet on a weekly basis for one-on-one sessions, or have weekly group therapy. There are some circumstances where clients have both group and individual therapy, or have more than one session per week. All treatment programs are individualized to focus on each client’s specific needs and goals.
The staff is comprised of three main therapists. The founder of Mended Wing, Casey Becker, who is an LMHC that specializes in eating disorders and trauma related disorders. Catherine Loveless and Virginia Walls round out the treatment team. They each bring different specialties to the practice including stress management, depression and anxiety, spiritual development, and problems within relationships.
There are specialty services for veterans at Mended Wing. In addition, there are family and couples counseling services offered on a regular basis.
