About me

Hello and welcome to BetterHelp! My name is Jenny Wright and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker working out of Missouri. I am recently licensed as a therapist, but I have been working in mental health for the last 15 years. I completed my Master’s in Social Work from the University of Kansas in 2019. I have substantial experience as a case manager and have most recently worked as a therapist for clients in an acute setting. Prior to that I worked at a children’s residential care facility and at an intensive outpatient substance abuse facility.

Mental health is a passion of mine, and I take my role in your wellness very seriously. I believe that every person deserves to find the right approach to living the best life that they can live. I always put my clients first and use the strengths and tools that they possess to let them be the main driver behind their success. I am just here to guide you and be a helping hand in achieving your goals. With me, you will always feel like you are number one!

As a social worker and former case manager, I believe that a person’s environment and social supports are integral to forming a healthy and nourishing way of life. I take a very holistic and eclectic treatment approach, incorporating many styles and techniques. I am particularly adept in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solutions Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. I enjoy spending time getting to know the person that I am working with so that I can help them fully utilize the world around them on their quest for happiness. I believe that somewhere deep within each of us is an opportunity to improve and change in ways that accommodate even the most distressing of circumstances.

I believe that everyone deserves that chance. I love working with people from a broad variety of backgrounds and experiences. I have ample experience working within the LGBTQ+ community and with a variety of cultures and worldviews. I believe that it is our differences that make us special and will never judge anybody for being different than myself. I am also a strong supporter of those with disabilities, both visible and invisible, and have a personal connection with those that struggle to find their place in the world based on their perceived limitations. You deserve to be you and to live a life that you are truly passionate about.

I am truly glad that you are here and I look forward to working with you!

Jenny has been incredibly kind and empathetic towards me and she makes me feel seen during every session. I couldn’t be more grateful to have her as my therapist.

Jenny Wright is helping me a lot to cope with anxiety and depression by using behavioural therapy. She gives me helpful tips and is always there when I need her. It's good that I started this therapy, my life has improved.

She has gone above and beyond to offer a variety of modalities and techniques in my goal to achieve mental wellness. She reaches out to me for check-ins (message) between appointments. She does not end our sessions early. She is flexible and always understanding of any changes that arise. Her responses are well informed, detailed, and solution oriented. She’s truly the best.

Jenny is kind, caring, and easy to talk to. She’s great at listening and helping me identify what is lying underneath the surface as far as my issues go. She gives really good advice in a way that doesn’t come off as pushy or judgmental. I feel totally comfortable with her, and she had a good sense of humor too! I’m very happy that I was matched with her :)
