Dr. Bradley specializes in psychotherapy and hypnosis, and she treats children, adolescents, and adult individuals and couples.
Drawing on her extensive clinical background and life philosophy, Dr. Bradley takes a humanistic/holistic approach, wherein she integrates psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral elements to help clients learn healthy coping skills, strengthen emotional resilience, improve relationships, and resolve problems to live a healthier, happier, and more fulfilling life. "I believe that, at the unconscious level, each of us has a deep understanding of what our unique purpose is (i.e. a true sense of Self). However, through conditioning, life circumstances, cultural/societal expectations, and many other variables, there has grown a great disconnect between the way we are and who we truly want to be. As a facilitator, my work involves helping my clients navigate through this process, so that they once again become aligned with all they want to be and are able to experience their truly natural state - the ultimate state of well-being."
Dr. Bradley has developed a particular strength in helping clients in crisis situations. In addition to psychotherapy, she has found the use of hypnosis to be especially beneficial to help reduce stress and anxiety, improve pain management, reinforce sobriety, enhance performance, and facilitate the grieving process. She has found relaxation and visualization techniques to be quite helpful in improving psycho-social/emotional functioning following a crisis experience.
