Hello, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Arizona. My background includes working in a variety of settings with adolescents, families, adults both young and older. Because I have worked at many levels in organizations from a direct care counselor, supervisor of many behavioral health professionals to CEO, my experiences have exposed me to all types of people facing many challenges from personal to professional.
My approach to counseling is to establish myself as an ally to the individuals and couples with whom I work. Through active listening, often times using humor when appropriate, I will attempt to fully understand the perspective and feelings that the individual and the couple has and is experiencing. From the first session on, I try to help people take effective control of their situation by jointly designing plans that usually begin with small steps and build over time to dealing with the issues that contributed to the person asking for help.
I have worked with couples over many years and have focused on teaching them the skills they need to utilize to improve their communication, improve their intimacy and to get their needs met while being attentive and understanding of their partners needs, how their past experiences effect their current relationships and helping the couple formulate specific plans to decide how they want their relationship to change.
My approach is to help people examine their values, identify and build on their strengths, focus on acquiring new skills to deal with current and future problems and take action to change their lives in ways that they choose to be most helpful. While working together we may decide to modify or change plans as we go along, but the goals will always be clear and achievable

Dave Bradley is a kind and conscientious counselor. He has been extremely helpful to us. He was able to help us with communication. Great counselor.
Everything seems to be going well at this time. Enjoy David’s insight
David listens and provides thoughtful insights and guidance.
David has been an excellent! Very flexible and really takes his time to understand both parties (marriage counseling). I appreciate him greatly for all his insight & advice.
My husband and I have been working with David Bradley for the last few months. We had never seen a marriage counselor before but felt that our arguments were starting to have a meaningful, negative impact on our relationship. David is excellent at listening to us - he offers great suggestions and isn't afraid to challenge the way that we feel. Both of us have found concrete things that we need to work on through conversations with David (as he says "in order to feel different, you have to act different"). More importantly, we both trust his advice and his intentions, and it feels like are working together as a team to make improvements.
Very thoughtful and considerate.
The sessions with David have literally saved our relationship. I’m so glad we started talking with him when we did. He’s able to take our venting and translate it into real life applications to help us understand each other better. I would highly recommend him!
David has been working with my boyfriend and I and I’m very please with his help. Looking forward to our next session.
David is great! Highly recommended!
So far David is amazing. Very responsive to my msgs throughout my week in between sessions. I am very impressed with that fact. He seems like he genuinely ❤. Kind, funny, laid back, & professional. Will review again with full summary when program is complete
David is great! Everything a therapist should be. Give him more money.
David has been instrumental in helping me and my wife to work through a serious issue impacting our marriage. David combines deep expertise, many years of experience and genuine compassion in his approach to counseling. I am very pleased with my counseling experience and I am very thankful to David for his help...
