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!
