Clinical Neuropsychologist

Elise Bradley, Ph.D. is a clinical neuropsychologist in private practice in California. Prior to establishing her practice, she served eight years on the faculty at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC), in Nashville, TN, as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurology. At VUMC, she provided comprehensive assessments of adults to assess cognition in wide variety of neurological conditions. Her clinical work focused on movement disorders and other neurodegenerative conditions, as well as neurodevelopmental disabilities such as ADHD. Dr. Bradley also taught and mentored masters and doctoral level students in the VUMC Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology Division, and she has served as a consulting psychologist in the diagnostic center at an independent school specifically designed to honor learning differences in children in grades K through 12.

Her dissertation focused on assessment of ADHD in adults and she is passionate about working with individuals who have had long-standing difficulties with inattention and disorganization. She is especially motivated to work with young adults who have wondered for a long time whether their struggles in relationships, school, the workplace, and at home may be due to undiagnosed features of ADHD.

Dr. Bradley remains engaged in the neurology department at VUMC as an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurology.

Dr. Bradley continues to provide telemedicine evaluations for residents of both California and Tennessee. She accepts referrals to assess numerous conditions including neurodevelopmental disabilities, neurodegenerative conditions, traumatic brain injury and concussion, hormonal imbalance, multiple sclerosis, capacity assessment, Covid-19 cognitive sequelae, and more.  

The goal for all her clients is to provide the strategies to set them on a trajectory to success, so they can see and feel an improvement in their quality of life.
