About:

Over the past decade, the importance of mental health has been brought to the forefront of the conversation. My goal is to normalize and de-stigmatize the utilization of therapeutic interventions. I recognize the courage that it takes to ask for professional support, and I am strongly committed to helping you navigate some of life’s most difficult challenges.  

 

I have been working in the mental health field for over 5  years; within this time, I gained experience working with children ages 5 and up, adolescents/teens, adults, couples,  and families. From these experiences, I have developed a  passion for working with individuals dealing with depression,  anxiety, personality disorders, behavioral concerns, anger management, relationships, and life transitions.

 

Utilizing an eclectic approach, I specialize in Cognitive  Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment  Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). My goal is to provide an individualized, person-centered counseling experience that facilitates a positive change and helps you achieve your goals.

About

Welcome. :) My clients are intelligent, cognitively, somatically, and/or empathic. They care about growth towards greater health and balance, relationally and professionally. From a body felt and practical sense, they would like to feel met, seen and valued, as is true of all of us. I work from a calm, clear, non-judgmental, warm, fun, skilled and compassionate place, who can connect to what is being shared. I am in my mid 50's. I personally know multiple forms of trauma and have found greater health and healing through each of their unique and similar forms.

I focus where you are. I help create intentions that are mutually agreeable. I offer a choice on how we go about reaching intentions. I keep things present tense, while also creating the safety to touch into and integrate the deepest of traumatic material, somatically, cognitively, and relationally. I help you feel more at ease in the mind and body.

I have the intention to see you...to hear you...to meet you right where you are. I would be honored to help you find greater health, peace, love, and light of your soul. I look to supporting you in your transformation to a place that is just where YOU want to be!

About

Veronica Bradley moved to North Carolina from Long Island, NY in 2006 to begin her undergraduate education at UNCW. This is where she met her husband and best friend, Christopher Bradley. Initially, she started as a student wanted to pursue a career in education, but this quickly changed when she fell in love with what a career as a Physician Assistant could offer. 

She graduated as a Physician Assistant in 2015 from Elon University. She started her medical career in Family Medicine/ Primary Care for 3 years. Opportunity to move into a sub-specialty crossed her path, so she transitioned into Otolaryngology (ENT) for the last 4 years. She has enjoyed her time in both fields and has been able to utilize her knowledge and skills to treat patients of all ages. 

She will be applying her skills to facial aesthetics at BEST LIFE Mental Health & Wellness starting early summer of 2022. She is looking forward to adding this new service to the wellness side of the practice.
