Therapist in Goleta, California Bradford Durian, LMFT

Bradford Durian, LMFT

Bradford Durian is an LMFT who has been licensed since September 2002. He graduated from Pepperdine University’s Graduate School of Education and Psychology with a Master of Arts degree in the field of Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. Bradford applies cognitive behavioral approaches to address symptoms of depression and anxiety that were pioneered by Aaron Beck and Albert Ellis. Bradford believes in the application of family systems theory in order to fully understand the individual in their historical, cultural and developmental contexts. Bradford was highly influenced by the work of Carl Rogers and treatment concepts such as congruence, empathy and unconditional positive regard as critical elements for any successful therapy. Bradford worked in a psychiatric setting running outpatient groups where he gained invaluable experience diagnosing and treating individuals with Delusional Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Schizoaffective Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Brad provided therapy for individuals in the Workers’ Compensation system who were victims of harassment as well as suffering back and neck injuries which prevented them from working. Bradford’s specialties also include treatment of co-occurring disorders such as substance use in combination with depression, anxiety or a thought disorder. In his time Bradford enjoys playing tennis, watching foreign films and travelling. In these tumultuous times with rapid change therapy is a valuable resource for challenges in marital, occupational and emotional difficulties. For any client I do my best to listen carefully and offer viable solutions for whatever they are going through at the time.
