About Dr. Wright

Dr. Wright is a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst working with adults, adolescents and children. Licensed to practice medicine in New York and Connecticut, she is certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties in Adult Psychiatry and in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. She is also certified by the American Psychoanalytic Association in Adult Psychoanalysis.

She is a seasoned therapist, doctor and teacher who has been helping families and individuals for over forty years with difficulties ranging from acute crises such as divorce, loss and illness, acute depression to more longstanding and often subtle difficulties including anxiety, relationship problems, self esteem problems, identity issues and problems with love, work and school. Her patients include adults of all ages, adolescents and children, as well as couples and families.

Her intensive training and experience allow Dr. Wright to fine tune her approach to the individual’s specific strengths, problems and needs. Treatment goals include symptom relief and the removal of self destructive patterns, but she also works to help her patients move toward more healthy life management, improved relationships, a deeper sense of their own “being”, and continued emotional growth. Approaches used include insight oriented psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, psycho-pharmacology, family and couple counseling as well as working with parents on parenting issues.

Dr. Wright has offices on the upper west side of Manhattan and in north-west Connecticut and works with school communities in both locations. She is on the teaching faculty of the New York Psychoanalytic Institute and the Berkshire Psychoanalytic Institute.
