About Me

My counseling goal for you is to learn to cope easier and for you to feel comfortable and confident in your decision to get help. I also want to learn about your own goals, because everyone is an individual and should be treated as such. I primarily practice Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy because I believe that they work. We can change our thoughts and behaviors in order to balance our emotions. I am here to help with a nonjudgmental view and a deep desire for you to feel well and stay well. I have over 11 years of counseling experience working with teens and adults. Being a teenager can be extremely difficult and trying. Together we can find the coping skills that you need. A little bit about myself: I live in the Austin area with my two dogs. We travel whenever we get the chance and prefer to spend time in nature. I became a counselor after many hardships of my own when I was younger. Those that guided me along the way instilled in me the desire to assist other people and to reduce the stigma surrounding getting help.

I'd like to help you reach your full emotional potential, and I look forward to meeting you.

Thank you for being a confidant and a source of release for Khalie. I really appreciate and acknowledge the changes and improvements I’ve seen in my daughter because of your sessions together. Thank you, Mrs. Wright.

Jennifer has helped my daughter manage her OCD in extraordinary ways. We first met with her in December/January 2020/2021. Jennifer helped us pinpoint obsessions and compulsions and has allowed my daughter to feel free from the ball and chain OCD puts on her life. Every coping mechanism she's provided has made my daughter more comfortable in her environment and mind.
After a year and a half of no contact with her, my daughter's disorder flared up more often, so we turned to Jennifer. She helped even more by reminding my daughter of the available resources, coping mechanisms, and support systems.
We will forever remember her and be grateful for all she has done for my daughter.

She explains everything perfectly and helps set next steps. I'm really happy with our sessions.

Jennifer is the professional help I have been looking for! Even after my first visit, I left with strategies to cope with my stress and how to better identify what sets me down!

Written by S.U. on Apr 21, 2022 after therapy with Jennifer for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, coping with life changes, and grief

Jennifer is very responsive to my needs - she provides tools to help me cope and I know I can reach out to her at anytime.

I am so grateful she was paired with me. She has been a lifesaver.

Jennifer is incredibly open minded and non judgmental. She is skilled at offering both a listening ear and sage advice.

Written by E.L. on Jan 06, 2022 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, and bipolar disorder

Jennifer was very knowledgeable and I felt comfortable during my session.
She gave me recommendations and resources. I look forward to future sessions.

Jennifer has truly helped me turn my life around in the right direction. I came to her feeling so defeated, scared, and hopeless when it came to my mental health. She helped me accept my MDD/GAD diagnosis and talked me through every intrusive thought and feeling I experienced. In each of our sessions, she offered suggestions of minimal effort activities to try, coping mechanisms, and eventually helped me to make the decision to get on an SSRI medication (which I had been terrified to take the leap.) Now I've been on SSRIs for over a month, and that plus the counseling sessions with Jennifer have helped me start the recovery process and I've started feeling truly like myself again with little anxiety/depressive symptoms. Jennifer is compassionate, real, and is truly invested in her clients. I could not be more thankful to have had such a wonderful counselor.

Jennifer is extremely helpful and understanding. She makes an effort to come in to our sessions with helpful ideas for me to try and checks in on me frequently.

Jennifer Wright has the experience and knowledge to help many in need of therapy. She listens and offers her insight into any problem one might have. I am thankful for Jennifer. She helps me step outside myself and see things from another point of view that otherwise would be lost on me. Thanks for being an effective counselor Jennifer.

Written by T.A. on Jan 29, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Overwhelmed, lost, frustrated, super emotional were the feelings I'd been experiencing. I had attempted this process atleast 5 times in the last 2years but this time was different. Jennifer's bio resignated with me instantly. She's a great listener (i can over talk or impulsively interrupt), she's patient and very thorough. I feel like I'm peeping out of my safe/guarded place after our 2 sessions, I'm becoming more comfortable with opening up. She's helped me identify some areas of concern and given resources, tools to assist in these areas. Jennifer is definitely helping me get my power back!

Jennifer helped me feel grounded and provided me with exercises that actually are helping me overcome my OCD. On top of that, I was going through a rough patch in life as my family is affected by a genetic illness. Her experience and counseling helped me to see my feelings were ok to have and that through steps and communication, I can work through it to get back to a normal day to day. Her candor is honest and refreshing, as well as comforting. I appreciate her so much and am glad she was connected with me.

Work with me!
