Licensed Professional Counselor

In the past year, teachers have experienced a whirlwind of change. While the everyday challenges of teaching have always been, the pandemic exacerbated and compounded them with even greater stressors that no one could have imagined.

Perhaps you are:

  • Experiencing learning curves that lead to anxiety

  • Fearing you will miss non-verbal communication from your students

  • Unsure if you’re collaborating effectively with your colleagues through virtual platforms

  • Having some difficulty separating the work environment from the home environment

  • Concerned about selecting essential information for your students while keeping the state standards in mind

  • Uncertain about a variety of things, including returning to the classroom

Licensed Professional Counselor, Lynda Bradley, is a former teacher herself who in addition to teaching public school students, also provided special education services for four-year-olds. A seasoned member of Samaritan’s clinical team, Lynda counsels adults and children alike, specializing in many areas such as trauma—including PTSD—grief, loss, anxiety, depression, and much more.

Whether you desire individual, private sessions with Lynda, or being part of her interactive, counseling peer group, you can have the opportunity to work with her on a variety of issues relevant to you and your profession.


Lynda accepts Aetna, Cigna and Cigna EAP, Highmark, Magellan, MHNet (Health America), Optum/UBH/UHC, UPMC (CCBH), self-pay, and sliding scale fees for those who qualify through our Samaritan Cares program.
