Erika Wright Bio

Erika Wright, M.Ed., Practicum Counselor, Supervised by Michelle Morris, M.A.

Personal Statement:
Originally from North Carolina, I moved to Texas to pursue a doctorate degree in Counseling Psychology at Texas A&M University. I am excited to work with the diverse A&M community and help students reach their goals. In counseling, I recognize the unique values, characteristics, and experiences of each individual and emphasize understanding people holistically. I believe the therapeutic relationship is a powerful tool in the process of healing and I strive to create a safe place for each client to explore their beliefs, behaviors, and emotions.  I work with clients to identify areas of dysregulation in their lives and make plans to restore balance. I empower clients to use their strengths and address their weaknesses as they navigate their own lifelong process of growth. In my free time, I like to travel, paint, be outdoors, keep up with sports, and spend time with loved ones.
