Kelli Wright, PhD
I’m Dr. Kelli Wright and I have worked as a clinical psychologist in my own private practice since 2003. My doctoral training in both the research and practice of psychology was completed at the University of Houston, Loma Linda Veterans Administration Medical Center in California, and MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. I see people facing a variety of challenges, but substance use issues, anxiety, and depression are my areas of specialization. My approach to therapy stems from acceptance and mindfulness strategies which generally means I help people to identify who and what is most important to them and then to move in a positive way in those directions, despite the unpleasant internal distress that often seems to keep us stuck. I also have specialized training in the harm reduction approach for people struggling with the use of substances, including Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy, Moderation Management, and The Sinclair Method for excessive drinking.
On a personal note, I live in Houston with my husband and two spoiled rotten dogs, Abbey and Stanley. As a native Californian, I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, cycling and walking on the beach. On most weekends, I can be seen at spin class, listening to live music, or trying out the latest Houston eatery.
