Meet Annie Wright

Welcome. I’m Annie Wright.

I’m a licensed psychotherapist deeply committed to supporting the well-being of individuals, couples, and families from the Bay Area and beyond. From my offices in Berkeley, I work with my clients to improve their relationships, find fulfilling life paths, and create more ease and joy in their everyday. It’s an honor and a privilege to do this work: to help my clients feel more alive, more whole, and more empowered with the awareness and tools they require to navigate their unique journey and to craft the life they envision for themselves. I’m so glad you’re here. I look forward to being of support to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Therapy’s an added cost. Is it worth it?

Therapy is a financial commitment. It’s an investment in yourself and your ability to become aware of self-sabotaging patterns and more capable of practicing new, more effective thoughts and behaviors. This – this ability to think and behave more effectively – can profoundly and positively impact your future relationships, your work, your health, and even your finances. If you’re like most people I work with, you’ve likely already invested a lot of time and energy and money into your education, your career, your home, etc. I truly believe that therapy is a continued investment in your overall wellbeing and success in life.

I don’t want to just talk about how I’m feeling; I actually want things to change in my life.

I think there’s a big misconception out there that therapy means just talking and talking about the past without ever taking action on the present. I certainly don’t operate that way as a therapist. While we will always create space to talk about your past and the feelings that surface as we explore this, I’m a very direct and engaged therapist and actively work with my clients to design interventions, exercises, and thoughtful action steps if that’s what you’re looking for as part of therapy.

Is there something wrong with me if I need therapy? Shouldn’t I be able to handle this on my own?

Making the decision to seek out therapy isn’t a sign of weakness; it’s a wise act of self-care to reach out for support from professionals when there’s a challenge you need help with. You’d reach out to a doctor for help setting your broken bone or to a lawyer if you needed help filing divorce paperwork, wouldn’t you? When it comes to your mental and emotional health it’s no different. Reaching out for professional support is an act of self-care to address the challenges you’re facing.

Life With High-Functioning Anxiety: Can You Relate?

So in today’s article I share the signs of “high-functioning anxiety” and some ideas about how to treat it.
