“How to De-Stress and Cultivate Calm”

In it you can take a quick stress to determine how stressed you really are get 5 tips to help you start relaxing today!

Hi, I’m Jessica Wright, an LCSW with 10 yrs. of experience in social work and forensic settings. I understand work stress and how important self-care is for helpers, overachievers and all of us in this complex age. I will steer you the “Wright” way with Wright Choice Counseling!

This isn’t just therapy,

You aren’t sure you need it,
have never done therapy before,
or maybe are just a little afraid to get started.

I work with people of all backgrounds, beliefs, gender, and sexual orientations. My approach is to listen in a non-judgmental way and offer support and patient guidance. This process allows you to uncover feelings that may be hiding out in your subconscious so we can address them including:

  • Being worn out all the time and not knowing why
  • Feeling like your stress and anxiety are out of control
  • Being overwhelmed with feelings of guilt, frustration or sadness

This is not a cookie-cutter approach, I tailor it to your specific needs using a variety of Therapy Techniques that take you on a journey to a happier, healthier life. From wellness for First Responders, to helping overworked men and women learn how to de-stress, I am here to support you with patience and caring.

Therapy for First Responders

I do therapy specifically for first responders and other service providers, such as mental health workers, social workers, and others in helper or caregiving roles. EMDR is an excellent therapy technique for those who have been dealing with unprocessed or repeated trauma. There are several contributing factors that can cause personal or relationship issues for first responders and service providers too, including:

  • Burnout
  • Compassion Fatigue
  • Second-Hand Trauma
  • Chaotic and Stressful Work Environments
  • Lack of Sleep, Long Hours and Overnight Shifts
  • Feeling Misunderstood, Unseen, and Unheard by Your Partner
  • Difficulty Maintaining Work/Life Balance

In therapy sessions, I discuss how these are just symptoms of being in an occupational helper role and explain how my techniques give you relief and breathe new life into your partnerships. You and/or your partner may just be coping with work stress the best way you know how, but without communicating this, misunderstandings happen that get in the way of the happy, fulfilling relationship that is still possible.

Are You or Your Partner in a Helper Role?

If so check out my Gottman Method Couples Coaching page and section below. Learn how to establish healthy boundaries between work and home and improve communication in your relationship.

I show you how to get the joy back in your union with non-judgmental relationship coaching from someone who understands. I have worked in many different forensic and social service settings, so I know first hand what it can take out of you and what tools you need to stay connected.

Gottman Method Couples Counseling

I use the Gottman Method, developed by Doctors John and Julie Gottman, who studied couples he called, “Master Couples,” in love labs at the University of Washington. His unique method allows me to help couples overcome happiness blocks in their relationships more efficiently and with less emotional strain. This differs from traditional couples therapy because we don’t do deep dives into your psychology or look intensely into past traumas.

Instead, I am your coach and biggest relationship cheerleader. I provide you with a practical relationship assessment that will determine the exact steps needed to heal what is hurting your relationship.

Start by taking my free quiz “Top 10 Relationship Killers for Helpers” Quiz

to learn more about current areas you are struggling with in your relationship. At the end you receive my free workbook, “Helpers Love Differently,” with exercise to begin bridging the road to connection with your partner.

I take the anxiety and stress out of reopening long-lost communication channels with your partner, and help you hit reset on your relationship. We will uncover underlying trust issues, family patterns, and other factors that you may not realize are affecting your marriage or relationship. I also teach you how to communicate your needs and be open to receiving the needs of others in a healthier way, using Gottman method techniques. The end result?

You gain a deeper, more solid connection, and a relationship that can truly withstand the test of time.
