In order to heal from a history of trauma, abuse, or neglect; to reclaim ourselves from the clutches of addiction, unworthiness, or self-doubt; or to navigate issues of anxiety, depression, or every-day life challenges; we are well served by working within the dynamics of a therapeutic relationship that offers an environment of trust, safety, and support.   With a combination of deep listening, unconditional positive regard, and nonjudgemental loving-awareness, we can work together to peel back the layers of pain and confusion that have taken control of your life; reframing your internalized experience of yourself and discovering the unique path of vitality, purpose, and meaning that’s meant for you.”

Bradley Bemis is a student-intern working toward the completion of his master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.  He is also a military veteran, former technology professional, and has spent over six years working with people to overcome psychological suffering in a wisdom-oriented psychospiritual context.  Bradley is a passionate advocate for mindfulness and heartfulness approaches to psychological wellness and healing; with a deep interest in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and various body-based somatic experiencing techniques.  His primary areas of clinical focus include trauma, loss, grief, stress, anxiety, depression, self-worth, self-care, addiction treatment, identity issues, veterans’ issues, and palliative/hospice services. 

Prior to joining The Meaningful Life Center, Bradley spent eight years in the United States Air Force, including two years in the special operations community; and then another 22 years working as an information technology and cybersecurity professional in the civilian sector.  In 2014 he went through a profound transformational shift in conscious perception, devoted himself to service work, and began offering personalized, experientially-based instruction in contemplative wisdom and self-discovery.  In 2017 he engaged in 9-months of training as an Inner Presence Coach and, in 2018, entered the MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Walden University.  He has completed all of his coursework while maintaining a 4.0 GPA and receiving ‘exemplary’ clinical skills evaluations.  He also finished a 10-week counseling practicum experience in a private-practice setting that emphasized holistic and integrative therapeutic methods.  Upon completion of his master’s degree, Bradley plans to continue his education by enrolling in the Integral and Transpersonal Psychology Ph.D. program at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), specializing in Consciousness Studies and Contemplative Neuroscience. 

Outside of his clinical work, Bradley enjoys meditating, writing, and teaching, working with the homeless, and providing volunteer services for those in hospice care.  He lives in the Orlando area with his girlfriend and her 10-year-old special-needs son.
