Licensed Clinical Social Worker

"Become stronger at the broken places" is the tagline for AEDP and it is the core of my approach to therapy. Very much rooted in neurobiology, presence-focused therapies, AEDP is designed to work on attachment and trauma issues from a deep, resonant place.

AEDP recognizes that relational traumas occur when we are isolated in our experience in the face of overwhelming emotions. We become contracted around this traumatic experience, unable to move forward. Healing occurs in undoing the aloneness, giving space to gently re-orient the contraction toward our natural curiosity and creativity. In working together, we can rebuild your capacity to be with your emotions, out of survival mode, and into your natural state of flourishing.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

LCSW

The AEDP ethos is to help our patients become stronger at the broken places. By working with trauma, loss, and the painful consequences of the limitations of human relatedness, we discover places that have always been strong, places that were never broken. By championing our innate healing capacities, undoing aloneness, and processing difficult experiences, we foster the emergence of new and healing experiences and with them resources, resilience and a renewed zest for life.

Meredith Noble (she/her)

Professional Counselor Associate

MA, Certified Body Trust® Provider

AEDP is my primary approach to therapy. AEDP practitioners believe that trauma happens when a person has to face overwhelming emotions without adequate support. We believe that helping people “undo their aloneness” in supportive, gentle ways can facilitate healing and transformation. AEDP is relational and attachment-focused (uses the relationship of the client and counselor heavily), experiential (focuses on experiences rather than stories/talk therapy), and somatic (uses the body).
