Helping You Achieve Success

Unlock Your Full Potential.

Many of us struggle in life because we get stuck in destructive habits and patterns that were useful to us at one time but have since become problematic. Andy seeks to help his clients to uncover the emotional patterns that keep you from reaching your goals.

About Andy Bradley, tLMHC

Nothing gives me greater joy than helping others find freedom and healing. I have been working with families, youth, and teens for over five years, and have seen broken lives restored to health and wholeness – even those who were convinced their situation was hopeless. I provide practical guidance and direction with empathy and compassion. You may feel hopelessly lost today. While respecting your ideas and beliefs, I can help you discover practical steps that will finally get you out of the current “maze” you feel stuck in – and help you find freedom.

I have unique life experiences. Prior to becoming a therapist, I spent 20 years as an Arabic and Persian Linguist in the United States Marine Corps, so I have a rare ability to interact with people of various cultural backgrounds. As a veteran, one of my strong suits is helping people overcome trauma. Those with PTSD need not despair! I can help. I’m also a husband, father, pilot, world traveler, scuba diver, game enthusiast, avid calligrapher and dog lover.



Andy Bradley Counseling Specializes In

Marriage Therapy

I have been (truly!) happily married for more than 17 years, despite significant traumatic events. I find great satisfaction in empowering couples to build stronger, more fulfilling relationships even when they think there’s no hope. I have practical ways to improve your communication, love and respect for each other.

Teen Therapy

I have a unique way of connecting with teenagers and have been successful gaining the trust of both middle schoolers and high schoolers. Once the relationship is established, I can help your teen turn things around, as well. I have also helped countless parents learn new techniques that enable them to understand and connect with their teens in ways they didn’t know possible.

Individual Therapy

Surviving rather than thriving? Let’s find out where you’re stuck and discover the way through. I can help with anger management, addiction, PTSD, trauma, anxiety, depression, overcoming grief, stress management and many other life struggles. Let’s team up and find your healing.

What Others Are Saying About Andy Bradley’s Counseling

Andy’s compassion and understanding of the struggles that my teenage son was having was incredible. Andy was able to relate to him and make him feel comfortable enough to open up, and that was a test in itself. Andy is patient, kind and understanding which made the difficulties that we were having as a family and with our teenager an easier road to travel. My son and I still use the coping skills that Andy gave us to this day to be more successful than the previous.
