Counselor and TherapistRea Wright Quote

Bio {about réa}

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master’s degree in Community Mental Health Counseling and over 15 years of comprehensive clinical experience. I maintain a private practice on Main Street in Davidson and see adults, teens, tweens and families. I also counsel couples in all stages of relationships. I work with divorced and single parents, blended families and see people of every race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.

I have a particular passion and expertise for working with teenagers as they struggle to define their identities, cope with the rapid physical, emotional and psychological changes that take place within themselves and adjust to the demands of peers, schools, families and society. When seeing Teenagers, I tend to work collaboratively with parents, the family, school counselors, pediatricians and others to provide an optimum level of care. I incorporate a varying amount of family work when seeing adolescents as I find this to be a powerful medium for lasting change. My other passion and area of expertise lies in dealing with relationship issues, grief and trauma, and all that it encompasses.

I provide a non-judgmental and compassionate atmosphere in which you can safely explore and work through feelings, thoughts, images and beliefs, conscious or unconscious, that may be keeping you stuck. I am eclectic in my orientation and offer a holistic, integrative approach to client-centered therapy, using traditional psychodynamic and family systems work, cognitive behavioral techniques, Re-Decision Therapy and AIT (Advanced Integrative Therapy). I temper the process with creativity, imagination and humor, along with practical solutions and concrete goals. I also work collaboratively with physicians, psychiatrists, nutritionists, body workers and kinesiologists to provide an optimum level of care.

Testimonials

"I first became acquainted with Réa when my teenage daughter was referred to her for counseling.  Réa helped her tremendously, and I came to realize that I had been dealing with depression, illness, and relationship issues on my own for all these years and that therapy could benefit me also.  It was very helpful to have therapy in addition to medication, which was required in my case for depression.  Réa helped me work through some other serious family issues and a time of transformation in midlife.  With her council, I came to really know and value my self for the first time, as I thought I was defective in so many ways.  I was even able to return to a profession that I loved." ~ J

"Réa gave me the gift of letting go of confusing frustrations that had plagued my life. She helped me acknowledge the damage done by a narcissistic father in the hard work of our sessions. I feel the most contentment with myself that I have every felt in my life. I am grateful every day." ~ T

"Réa helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. I was going through an emotionally devastating divorce, and at times, wasn't sure I was strong enough to be there for my three young children. Réa helped me to dig deep, understand who I am, and to better cope with the situation I was dealt. It was because of Réa 's help and insight that I was able to reclaim myself and be the strong, solid mother that my children need and deserve. Today I am a secure, emotionally healthy, and truly happy woman. Thanks, Réa, you are a gift!" ~ A
