I am a Mental Health Counselor Licensed in both Virginia and West Virginia with experience in direct care for over29 years. I have worked with individuals, families and groups. I specialize in working with Depression, Anxiety, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective disorder, Bipolar Disorder, PTSD and personality disorders. I particularly enjoy helping people gain hope and recovery thru personal change. I have helped numerous individuals with Mental Health Recovery, Caregiver Stress, and problem solving to manage their illnesses.
My counseling style is warm and nurturing. I enjoy partnering with my patients to work toward change. I believe in being genuine and meeting my patients where they are. I have a very much patient centered approach and do not believe in judgement. I normally use a variety of techniques including Cognitive Behavioral, Rational Emotive Therapy, Solution Focused and Mental Health Recovery and Wellness approaches. I will work with you to set up an individual plan for change and care. Together we will work toward your goals and recovery.
It takes a great deal of courage to admit that what you have been doing is not working . It takes even more courage to ask for help. If you are at this point, I would really like to partner with you.

Lisa has been critical in my ability to recover from and receive the mental healing I deserve. I can't believe I got so lucky.
Lisa has been very helpful in listening with acceptance. She was comfortable to talk about herself too, unlike other therapists who may just keep silent. Her worksheets were very timely and relevant. There was no judgement, and my work with her was very helpful and something I wouldn't have done alone in this time.
Lisa has been a great help to me in my time of need! She asks questions that help me look deeper into myself and my actions. She is very patient and creates a warm atmosphere that makes me feel comfortable to open up.
Lisa is great! She always listens to your needs and if you get off topic she always connects the conversation back to what you should be talking about which makes opening up a lot easier. When I talk to Lisa I feel like she really cares about what I’m going through and about my path to recovery. She often celebrates small achievements which makes me feel more confident moving forward.
Ms. Bradford is a wonderful, intelligent, and caring counselor. I have such respect for her and I feel so respected by her. She makes me feel comfortable and provides me with excellent techniques to improve my mental health. Her kindness also goes a very long way. She quite literally betters my life and I am so grateful for her.
In a very short time Lisa has provided me with great tailored support to help me navigate my symptoms and helps me play a positive roll in my mental health. She is responsive and I find the platform (phone/computer) great for getting fresh thoughts out in a timely fashion.
