Hi, I’m Kelli Wright. Welcome to my profile! Looking for a counselor can feel overwhelming, especially during a time of crisis. I hope the following information about my services and background helps to make this process a little easier.
You may be at a place in your life that you feel powerless or defeated by depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, or other challenges. However, the fact that you are looking for answers speaks volumes about who you are. You have chosen to keep walking on your journey in hopes of a better tomorrow despite the pain you are in today. I cannot think of anything more life-giving than being able to join someone on their journey to healing and renewed hope! It is an honor when invited to be a part of that process. If you are reading this, you are likely at a place where you are ready for that next step on your journey...I'd love to join you!
I began my career as an LPC Intern and a substance use disorder counselor at Serenity House in Abilene, TX, in 2007. There I provided intake and 12-step counseling to clients diagnosed with a substance use disorder. I completed my internship at Austin State School in Austin, Texas. There I performed functional analyses, created behavior support plans, and provided psychotherapy for residents diagnosed with an intellectual developmental disorder. After I became independently licensed, I began a private counseling practice in San Antonio, Texas. I also had the privilege of serving as a counselor to the underserved population in San Antonio at several community counseling centers. After meeting and marrying my husband, an Army Chaplain, I moved to Waco, Texas, where I opened the Counseling and Recovery Center of Waco, LLC. For six years, I served individuals with various challenges but specialized in substance use disorders and addiction. I had the privilege of growing deep and meaningful relationships with my clients and the Waco community and dearly miss it. I closed my physical practice in 2017 due to my husband's reassignment to Hawaii. In Hawaii, I had the privilege of serving the United States Marine Corps as a clinical substance abuse counselor. Now I serve the United States Army in Kentucky as a Military and Family Life Counselor and continue to provide counseling to the general public through my online counseling business.
I have been providing counseling services for the last 14 years. I am a board-certified Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Kentucky (LPCC) and a board-certified Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. I am also a member of the American Counseling Association.

I believe every person has a unique story, needs, and goals. I do not believe in a "one-size-fits-all" approach to counseling. As your therapist, I strive to find what will work best for you. You are my focus. That said, some people like to know my theoretical approach (the way I think about counseling). Out of the 6 main theoretical approaches, I lean toward Cognitive, Behavioral, and Humanistic/person-centered theories. Every counselor also uses certain methodologies (the tools they use) for counseling. The tools I most frequently use are Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Existential Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Reality Therapy.

I am currently unable to accept insurance; however, check with your insurance because you may have out-of-network benefits that may cover a portion of the cost. I can provide you a document called a superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. At this time, I do not submit claims myself.
