Dr. Barbara Brady

(PhD, LPC, Marriage, Couples, &, Family, PM)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, hold a post-masters certification in Marriage, Couples and Family Counseling, completed Basic Family Mediation certification training, and am a lifelong learner. I continue to take courses, attend workshops and other training to ensure my skills are up-to-date and I am always well-prepared to support my clients. With over 25 years of counseling experience, my areas of expertise include working with adolescents, families, young adults and couples in a counseling relationship in the areas of career planning, improving relationships, reducing stress and anxiety, dealing with grief and loss, gender identity issues, child custody issues, parenting issues, conflict resolution, anger management, domestic violence, and more.

My passion is helping people achieve their dreams and live happy, fulfilling lives. Counseling is providing support to individuals who reach out, helping them set goals; recognize and address barriers; examine how they are getting in their own way and how they are letting others impede their success and happiness. I enjoy helping my clients set goals and take action steps to move in the direction they want to go. My counseling style is supportive and non-judgmental, helping the client move from being problem focused to being solution focused. My goal is to help clients find a therapeutic process that works best for them, depending on the issue they are dealing with and their unique personalities and needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. Congratulations for reaching out for help. This is a first big step in getting the support you need to gain power over your struggles and to begin living the life you have always dreamed of living.

I look forward to working with you in this new journey.

Written by S.T. on Sep 23, 2020 after counseling with Barbara for 10 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, and anger management

Highly recommend Dr. Brady! She has been a Godsend in my life. So thankful for her wise counsel and active listening skills.

I have been wary of starting counseling again because of a bad past experience, but Dr. Brady is a match made for me. I don’t know if it was the questionnaire and the expertise of BetterHelp or just God’s good intervention, but I
am extremely grateful for her either way.

I am in the midst of a very complicated situation, and signed up for BetterHelp to get some guidance. Before my first video session with Dr. Brady, she asked me about my background and what’s going on my life life right now, and I ended up sending her a pages-long message explaining it all. When we talked for the first time in the video session, it was clear to me that she not only actually read all of it, but in just the first 10 minutes or so, I could tell that she had taken the time to really understand it. I could see that she just “got” how my background tied into my current life circumstances, and I immediately felt reassured and confident that she already knew how to make sense of all of it and for the first time in a long time, I feel like my life is manageable and I can finally get better!

I’ve been in therapy for over 2 years mostly using BetterHelp because of how convenient it is. I’ve tried several different therapists they were all decent and helped in that moment but I always felt like I needed more from who I was talking to until I was matched with Dr. Brady. Dr. Brady is so thorough she’s made sure to understand all my goals And needs from day one she put in 10 times the effort that I’ve received from any other therapist. She’s so kind, understanding, and validating. She also has a great way of putting things into perspective as well. She’s an amazing therapist and really cares.

I’ve only been with Dr.Brady for a few weeks but she is always extremely helpful and helps me make sense of what I’m going through. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone dealing with relationship issues and trauma. She is a wonderful counselor.

Dr. Brady is knowledgeable and very helpful in dealing with my issues. She made time for me when I really needed the attention and followed up with me when I didn't follow up. She really kept me on track and helped me cope with several issues.

She is a wonderful counselor!

I’ve only been working with Dr. Brady for a few weeks now and things have been much better. She’s helped me remember to focus on the bright-side of things I can control and to not focus on things I cannot. I look forward to working with her much more until I can use the tools given on my own.

Written by J.A. on Mar 27, 2019 after counseling with Barbara for 1 month

Dr. Brady is a pensive, considerate and ambitious counselor with a depth and breadth of experience that I found comforting. She listened to my problems and helped me resolve them in a way that will make future entanglement easier to avoid and/or fix. I am grateful that I was placed in her care and would recommend her to anyone. Thank you, Dr. Brady!
