Kathleen is an incredible help and support. She takes the time to understand the issues I'm facing, but isn't afraid to challenge my viewpoint to help me see things from a different perspective. I cannot think her enough for the help she's given me through a very difficult time

Kathleen is incredible. Kind and thoughtful in her delivery, it’s easy to be open and talk with her. She’s got a realistic approach to life and life’s issues. I highly recommend her; she’s made my first try at therapy a great experience.

Ms Wright is warm, friendly and a great listener. She makes you feel comfortable when talking about your most troubling issues..as someone that lives alone, just having someone to talk to and engage with makes a huge difference in my day

I was scared and skeptical about starting therapy. The therapist BH matched me with did not work out after the first session. I was then given a list of therapists and after narrowing down the list, I chose Kathleen and I am so glad I did. She is caring, supportive, empathetic, attentive and knowledgeable. She has helped me tremendously. I feel blessed to have found Kathleen and would highly recommend her.

Kathleen is simply the best. She is a great empathetic listener and gives me space to think and feel through things. An added bonus is that she tells the most poignant anecdotes. I really enjoy and gain from our sessions.

Kathleen is a therapist for overachievers! We have the tendency to overrhink. She gives space to slow down and process our thoughts instead of minimizing them. I appreciate her attention to detail and patience.
