Esther Wright Bio

Psychologist IV, Coordinator of Group Counseling

Personal Statement:
I believe growth is a life-long process and effective psychotherapy facilitates growth in everyone involved in the therapeutic relationship. It is a privilege and also extremely rewarding to be part of a process through which individuals recognize and integrate the various parts of themselves (spirit, mind, and body), become aware of and utilize their own strengths, and actively celebrate who they are becoming. Some of my favorite pastimes are staying in touch with my large and expanding family, writing, reading, dancing, and traveling.
