“In order to heal from a history of trauma, abuse, or neglect; or to reclaim ourselves from the clutches of addiction, unworthiness, or self-doubt, we must first work within the dynamics of the therapeutic relationship to create an environment of trust and safety.   With a combination of deep listening, unconditional positive regard, and nonjudgemental loving-awareness, we can work together to peel back the layers of conditioning and confusion that have taken control of your life, reframe your internalized sense of reality, and discover the unique path of vitality, purpose, and meaning that’s meant for you.”

Disclaimer: Bradley is currently a graduate student in the CACREP-accredited Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Walden University.  He is not licensed to practice mental health counseling and does not offer counseling services at this time.  However, Bradley does integrate several counseling techniques into his work with people as a spiritual teacher and inner presence coach.  He can also refer spiritual seekers, students, and clients to a number of licensed nondual and other therapists across the country if there is a need to do so.

Clinical Orientation and Approach

Hello, my name is Bradley and I am a counselor in training.  My primary clinical orientation is integral, transpersonal, and nondual in nature.  I draw heavily from  Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT),  Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy,  Relational Frame Theory, Systems Theory, Person-Centered Theory, Jungian Analytical Theory, Existential Theory, Depth Psychology, Buddhist Psychology, Motivational Interviewing, Somatic Studies, Neuroscientific Advancements, Linguistic Anthropology, and more.

Current Educational and Licensure Status

Right now I am half-way through my M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, maintaining a consistent 4.0 GPA.  I will be eligible for Florida licensure as a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern by the end of November 2019, begin my clinical internships in August of 2020, and graduate from my program in May of 2021.  I intend to begin my PhD work in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in the fall of 2021, complete the Florida requirements for supervised experience to become a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) by mid-2023, and then go into private practice while continuing my PhD studies.  

Note: As of September 2019, I have formally begun inquiring into qualifying internship programs in the Orlando Florida area and can begin work anytime between March and August of 2020.  My actual field experience requirements include the term periods of 24 Aug – 8 Nov 2020 (Practicum), 23 Nov 2020 – 7 Feb 2021 (Internship 1), and 22 Feb – 9 May 2021 (Internship 2).  If you know of any potential internship sites or would be willing to consider me for an internship opportunity, please email me at bradley@awakeningintolife.com.  I have also begun preparing a subsection of this website that is dedicated to sharing additional information about my school requirements, professional qualifications, and areas of interest (coming soon).
