From Utah originally, Brady completed his undergraduate studies in sociology and psychology at the University of Utah, in Salt Lake City. He then attended and completed his graduate studies in criminology at the University of Sydney, in Sydney, Australia. He later finished his schooling at the California School of Forensic Studies, in San Diego, California, completing his doctoral degree in Clinical Forensic Psychology.
Prior to moving to Okinawa, he worked in private practice and provided outpatient psychotherapy to a multitude of clients, including young adults, working professionals, Veterans, active duty service members, and their families. Further, he helped to address a number of issues precipitated by various life stressors, including, not limited to anxiety, depression, trauma, relational and identity issues, self-esteem, and grief.
In his free time, Brady loves traveling, trying new foods, exploring different parts of the world with his spouse, and visiting long-distance friends. He also enjoys deep-sea fishing, photography, and painting (as he previously taught art therapy in prior clinical settings). His favorite time is spent with his spouse and their two dogs, going to the local beaches surrounding Okinawa’s coast.
