About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Georgia, with over 12 years experience. My approach is client centered, transparent, genuine, & empathetic. I like to meet clients where they are & I enjoy helping them reach their goals. This is achieved by mostly utilizing Cognitive Behavioral therapy with a mix of solution focused therapy, family systems & a very effective strategy known as Motivational interviewing.

While I specialize in working with clients who are having difficulty coping with stress, loss, neglect, and abuse; I also am very good at working with clients who are dealing with self esteem, relationship, OCD, depression, anxiety, chronic health conditions, and Substance Abuse.

From time to time, we all need a listening ear & someone to reflect what you have experienced. Le me applaud you on taking the steps needed to overall have a better quality of life & ultimately, to feel better & have more insight. I look forward to meeting and talking with you.

Written by A.N. on Mar 01, 2021 after counseling with Carla for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Carla has been so supportive through my healing and she has brought many tools to my attention that I can put into action in order to walk through so many things. She brings out a perspective about myself that I deeply needed to hear from someone that can make proper assessments. Truly a good hearted person and beyond helpful.

Carla is an attentive listener. Her style of counseling is very laidback. She provides clarification or correction as needed. You can definitely tell that she enjoys her job and genuinely wants the best for her clients.

Carla is an amazing person to speak to. There have been many times where she have listened to me ramble about so much and still found ways to help understand and empathize the feelings I have been feeling. She's very understanding, she listens, and knows how to relate a lot of the things I've been experiencing and sharing. I highly recommend her to a lot of people who doesn't know too much about her and her practice. She's very honest, open, and transparent which makes relating her experiences to yours very easy and it just makes it that much easier to open up to her without feeling judged.

Written by A.S. on Aug 27, 2020 after counseling with Carla for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Carla has a way of communicating with me that compares to the feeling of talking to a true friend. She listens, offers insight to why I might be feeling the way I do, provides me with tools and techniques to help me work through the feelings and worries I have, and has a way of being relatable without making me feel unimportant or second to the conversation. I’ve only had a few sessions with her so far and can already see the positive affects that her therapy sessions have had on my behavior and emotional well-being. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for help!

As for right now to this point, Mrs Wright has been a wonderful councilor. She responds in a timely manner and if she's not able to, she lets me know. She always stick to any scheduled appointments I may make with her. I really would highly recommend Mrs Wright to others if needed a councilor. She's very nice and humble.
