About Me

My training has been both academic and from “the school of hard knocks.” In 2005, at age 40, I completed my PhD in child at family studies with an emphasis in counseling at the University Tennessee. I was taking a heavy course load, working two part-time jobs, and raising two young children. I consider my time as client at the student counseling center the most important part of my training. I completed my family therapy training at Good Shepherd Counseling Center under one of the earliest family therapists in Tennessee. I started by training as an undergraduate psychology major (and creative writing minor) at Carson-Newman University. I then went to seminary where I majored in pastoral counseling and worked as an aide at internationally known Norton Psychiatric Clinic. In the area of hard knocks experience, I have been though the heart-rending pain of divorce, so I seek to do everything

People describe me as down to earth. I grew up the son of teachers and grandson of farmers. I have baled hay, fed cattle, and spent a summer pulling steel from a 1500-degree furnace and driving a fork lift. I also was captain of my high school soccer team. If I’m not working, I’m riding my bike, watching a movie, reading a book, playing scrabble, hiking, canoeing, or refinishing furniture.

Written by K.A. on May 12, 2022 after therapy with Bradley (Brad) for 3 months on issues concerning relationship

Dr. Bull has been amazing for my husband and me. Neither of us have been to a counselor or therapist before, so we were nervous starting, but Dr. Bull made things comfortable and easy for us to open up. Every couple and situation is different, but we felt a positive shift in our communication and relationship even after our first session. We’ve also been learning practical things that we can apply to ourselves personally that carry over into our marriage. I’ve recommended Dr. Bull to several friends—he’s great!
