Jessica Wright, LCSW

My name is Jessica Wright, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). My pronouns are she/her/hers. I’m originally from Pennsylvania, and I have a BA in Psychology and a Master of Social Work. I’ve worked and volunteered in the field of mental health for the past seven years. My professional experience includes working in residential treatment with juvenile sex offenders, supportive housing for teenagers, and providing therapy to children, adults, and families in community mental health and school-based settings. In my free time, I enjoy playing Animal Crossing, watching baking shows, listening to podcasts, and spending time with my cat.

Treatment Orientations

As a therapist, I take the approach that every person is the expert in their own life; they are the storyteller of their own story. My goal is to help clients understand themselves better, to identify and address concerns in their lives, and come up with solutions together that facilitate change. I focus on building a strong and collaborative relationship with each client, as well as creating a safe, welcoming, and inclusive therapeutic environment by being curious and present.

I take a Strengths-Based and Humanistic approach in my practice, and I utilize many different methods including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Play Therapy, and Structural Family Therapy.
