I have been in therapy with Dr Verda for a year now. She is someone I can trust with many details of my personal life, and I deeply value her opinion and advice. At a stressful time in my life, our sessions helped me offload and reflect on ways to better cope. A year later, I feel that I have the inner resources to better cope with my anxieties and the people around me.

Dr Bradley is awesome! There are very few people in my life that corral me to stay on point and she does! I like this because it helps me stay on point. Among other things, it’s wonderful to have a councilor that actually talks to you instead of sitting just listen with no advice! She gives me the guidance I need honestly

Dr. Bradley is very insightful and thoughtful. She always remembered the conversations we had from our last sessions and asked good questions that were very insightful. Really needed and appreciated all of my sessions with her!!
