Dr. LeGrice has had extensive training in AEDP and EFT as well as interpersonal neurobiology. These are the models she uses in her therapy practice. AEDP, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy was developed by Dr. Diana Fosha, and is based in attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology and transformance, a theory that articulates the overarching motivational force that pulses within us, the sense of “this feels right”. AEDP focuses on the belief that we are wired for growth and for healing. Undoing one’s unwanted aloneness in the face of intense and unbearable emotional experience is central to AEDP’s therapeutic mission (Fosha, 2000). EFT is based on attachment theory and 30 years of research understanding and alleviating relationship problems. This model uses a systematic and empirically validated theory of adult bonding to help couples create safe, secure loving relationships.
