Annie Wright, LMFT
Meet Annie: Hello! I’m the founder of Evergreen Counseling and a licensed marriage and family therapist. I received my undergraduate degrees from Brown University and my graduate degree from California Institute of Integral Studies. I’ve been in private practice in since 2013.
My specialties: I specialize in working with Millennial and Gen-X women and men dealing with anxiety, depression, and relationship challenges (including romantic, family-of-origin, and workplace relationships). I also have a particular interest in working with those who identify as and struggle with being un- or under-parented and first-generation (whether this is in education, profession, or culturally).
What drew me to this work: Every step of my journey – beginning with my own need to heal from and thrive after very challenging beginnings – has led me to this work. From helping to run an Ivy-league student mentoring program, to serving in the Peace Corps, to living and working at Esalen Institute for nearly four years in my mid-twenties, the archetypal work of counseling – of learning how to help people to navigate challenging situations and feel better in their lives – has been a constant thread throughout my whole life. Becoming a licensed psychotherapist and founding Evergreen Counseling in the community I call home allows me to do what I love the best: help others.
My style: Warm, engaged, direct, relational.
Services I offer: In-person individual, couple, and family therapy as well as online video counseling for residents of California.
