About AEDP Metro DC

The AEDP Metro DC, originally called AEDP MidAtlantic, was founded in March 2014 to help bring Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) to the metropolitan DC area, support AEDP clinicians, and build a community of AEDP practitioners by offering education and supervision. AEDP Metro DC is governed by a Steering Committee comprised of AEDP-trained psychotherapists: Gail Schumann, LCSW-C (Co-Chair); Leslie Rogers, LCSW (Co-Chair); Mary Ann Dutton; PhD, Dawn Morgan, LCSW-C; Roger Sandberg, LCPC, LPC, LMFT.
