More about me

Licensing: LCSW, LICSW
Years in Practice: 30
State: VA

I am a Mental Health Counselor Licensed in both Virginia and West Virginia with experience in direct care for over29 years. I have worked with individuals, families and groups. I specialize in working with Depression, Anxiety, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective disorder, Bipolar Disorder, PTSD and personality disorders. I particularly enjoy helping people gain hope and recovery thru personal change. I have helped numerous individuals with Mental Health Recovery, Caregiver Stress, and problem solving to manage their illnesses.

My counseling style is warm and nurturing. I enjoy partnering with my patients to work toward change. I believe in being genuine and meeting my patients where they are. I have a very much patient centered approach and do not believe in judgement. I normally use a variety of techniques including Cognitive Behavioral, Rational Emotive Therapy, Solution Focused and Mental Health Recovery and Wellness approaches. I will work with you to set up an individual plan for change and care. Together we will work toward your goals.

It takes a great deal of courage to admit that what you have been doing is not working . It takes even more courage to ask for help. If you are at this point, I would really like to partner with you.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Lisa is a very compassionate person, who listens to my concerns. She has provided guidance on how to make better decisions, how to react to stress-causing situations, and how to express my emotions in a more constructive way. Lisa responds very quickly when I reach out to her. I cannot recommend Lisa Bradford enough, she has changed my life for the better.

I can’t come up with the right words to describe how much I cherish my sessions with Lisa. She has become apart of my daily life. Her resources, worksheets and suggestions have guided me and helped me walk a clear path. She is flexible and always lets you know she’s a call away. She is kind and a great listener.

Lisa is a great listener. She is someone I’ve learned to trust with my feelings and I can honestly express myself to her. And that means a lot in getting the help I need.

Lisa listens, she doesn’t push anything upon me. She is kind and gentle, seems to know what I need and she understands/cares about me. I am deeply grateful for her.

K..·Mar 18, 2021


Lisa is very good at listening, she is supportive and provides valuable resources to help me overcome my issues. I also like the way she shares personal experiences, this makes it easier for me to open up to her. She is also very flexible with her time, when I request a time, other than the slots she has available, she will try to accommodate me. She is warm, personable and professional, I would definitely recommend her as a counselor.

C.A.·Feb 28, 2021


I've only had a couple of live sessions with Lisa, but it's going very well. I'm not great at talking about myself and my problems, but she is helping me with that. She seems very attentive and I believe she cares about my issues. I'm hoping this therapy will help me. It's something I've needed for years.

S.H.·Jan 15, 2021

R.O.·Dec 18, 2020


I am fairly new here to Better Help, and I want to say that Lisa Bradford has been so beyond helpful to me, even from the first visit. She listens, understands and always has multiple ways to work through anything I am going through. From the first visit I felt like I had known her from years.

S.I.·Nov 25, 2020


I really like my counselor! She's helped me through a tough time, and I feel as though I'm getting much better.

Lisa has provided me with so many tools to reflect inward about my issues. She’s given me renewed hope and passion that I can overcome my issues! I highly recommend working with her. Her respectful warm atmosphere coupled with the right tools is a path for success!

M.I.·Sep 06, 2020


Ms.Bradford has definitely helped me take a turn for the right direction. I used to be weary about therapy until I signed up and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. She is a great listener and she will show you the proper tools to feel better and add them to your routine.

Super great and kind, very easy to talk to!

K.C.·Aug 11, 2020


Lisa has been critical in my ability to recover from and receive the mental healing I deserve. I can't believe I got so lucky.

V.I.·Jul 27, 2020


Lisa has been very helpful in listening with acceptance. She was comfortable to talk about herself too, unlike other therapists who may just keep silent. Her worksheets were very timely and relevant. There was no judgement, and my work with her was very helpful and something I wouldn't have done alone in this time.

S.T.·Jul 21, 2020


Lisa has been a great help to me in my time of need! She asks questions that help me look deeper into myself and my actions. She is very patient and creates a warm atmosphere that makes me feel comfortable to open up.

L.I.·Jun 24, 2020


Lisa is great! She always listens to your needs and if you get off topic she always connects the conversation back to what you should be talking about which makes opening up a lot easier. When I talk to Lisa I feel like she really cares about what I’m going through and about my path to recovery. She often celebrates small achievements which makes me feel more confident moving forward.

J.E.·May 28, 2020


Ms. Bradford is a wonderful, intelligent, and caring counselor. I have such respect for her and I feel so respected by her. She makes me feel comfortable and provides me with excellent techniques to improve my mental health. Her kindness also goes a very long way. She quite literally betters my life and I am so grateful for her.

T.I.·May 27, 2020


In a very short time Lisa has provided me with great tailored support to help me navigate my symptoms and helps me play a positive roll in my mental health. She is responsive and I find the platform (phone/computer) great for getting fresh thoughts out in a timely fashion.
