Theresa Bradbury

Psychologist

About Me

I am a Pennsylvania Licensed Psychologist. Over the past 25 years, I have provided mental health services and support to children and their families, helping clients gain control over emotional and behavioral dysregulation and learning difficulties. I worked for over a decade on the child and adolescent units of a psychiatric hospital. As the educational consultant, I assessed children carrying a variety of diagnoses including ADD, ODD, Tourettes Disorder, Autism, Intellectual Disability, Anorexia, Depression, OCD and others. Unique IEP's or 504 Plans were developed for students before their return to their home schools.
I also worked in the public school sector as a school psychologist for twelve years in Pittsburgh, PA and for five years since moving to the west coast. I have administered and interpreted hundreds of psychoeducational tests over the years and while in person assessments are on hold during the pandemic, families may have questions about their child's school progress. My experience in both the medical and educational systems allowed me to gain a unique understanding of school systems from an educational and legal perspective as well as expertise in the the development and monitoring of a successful IEP.
In private practice, my areas of advanced study include PTSD, Anger Management, Depression, and ADHD in both children and adults.
The pandemic is affecting all if us in ways we may not yet fully understand. If you feel the need for support, this would be a good time to call.

Theresa has been great. She is very responsive and a great listener. Her advice is always on point to the issue at hand. If you discuss something she does not fully understand, she will go above and beyond with independent research to understand the problem so as to better help you. Really a wonderful therapist.

I saw Theresa when I needed someone to talk to and listen to me. I’m not the best at sharing my internal world with my family or friends. She helped me so much! She has been so encouraging and supportive. It has made a world of difference. I’m so grateful for her!

Theresa is a wonderful person. She helped me in my mental health journey in a way that I could not have done myself. She was communicative, followed up often outside of sessions, and offered a lot of extra and unsolicited resources which were just the icing on the cake. If you have an opportunity to work with Theresa, do. She is a good person and a good therapist.

Theresa is wonderful. She gives advice that is wise, take to me and helps me to figure out what's going on in my life and how I can fix it.
She's not just a therapist but she is a friend, one that you can trust and she has your back and always checks in on you to make sure you're okay. I would recommend her to anybody seeking counseling for any reason. I have also told my other doctors about her and other friends that may need some help in healing or discovering themselves.
Theresa is a blessing in my life and helps me with all my mental issues immensely.
