Across our lifespan, we can continue to grow, learn, and become more alive and comfortable with who we are, flaws and all. With ever-increasing awareness, we can notice when we shift into a state that doesn't serve us or our relationships.

Hilary Jacobs Hendel, LCSW


Everyone struggles to process emotions, especially when our past experiences may have warped our emotional understanding and awareness.

Unfortunately, today's culture encourages us to 'power through' tough situations instead of fully experiencing and expressing our feelings.

Rates of depression and anxiety have increased, and as we face life's challenges, our emotions can get stuck if we avoid them.

Accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy, or AEDP, is a therapy model that helps people work through their trauma by utilizing the brain's ability to create new pathways through emotional awareness.

Dr. Hilary Jacobs Hendel is a licensed clinical social worker, psychotherapist, and supervisor at the AEDP Institute.

Jacobs Hendel's experience as a caseworker, a mental health consultant, and in private practice has helped her turn AEDP and the Change Triangle into tools that anyone can use.
