Reviews for Jeff Wright, LMFT
"Jeff is a no nonsense, incredibly wise therapist who can hold you with strength and immense calm. He has a huge heart and creates a deep sense of safety. If you want support from a gentle and powerful, wise, masculine presence and get clarity on your most direct path to happiness, I highly recommend seeing him."

"Jeff is one of my favorite people. He has helped me through some serious life transitions and always helps to put things in perspective. One of the things I love the most about Jeff is that he is all about healing yourself up to be the happiest person you can be. Not necessarily "fixing" anything, but accepting yourself, finding yourself, and if change is necessary, helping you make changes that you want to make. His attitude and office space are both extremely welcoming and comfortable - every time I walk into his space I just feel a sigh of relief and immediately feel less stressed out - plus, he always has a full box of tissues on hand. "

"Jeff has helped me through tough times. He helped me transition through a part of my life when I felt very 'stuck'. He simplified all the complicated, rats nest thoughts I had running through my mind and he helped me see that my emotions would not kill me (despite what I said). I loved when Jeff would tell me: 'When the new sanity becomes as comfortable as the old insanity was, you will know a new peace.' "
- Mikaela H.
"I have had the privilege of sitting with Jeff on numerous occasions, and his wisdom has stayed close to my heart. He speaks in a uniquely clear way that I can always understand with ease, and his carefully chosen words have helped me to be a better person. I feel blessed to have access to a person like Jeff."
- Tara L.
"Jeff Wright saved my marriage. After seeing another counselor for a year, then being miserable in our relationship for another year, we finally went to see Jeff on the brink of divorce. Less than one year later, we have a solid, loving relationship devoid of resentment and based on real intimacy, love and admiration. We no longer see him for marriage counseling and my husband actually misses him. This from a man who never wanted to go to counseling in the first place."
- Kathi S.
"I benefited from Jeff's presence before he said anything. It was very reassuring. I always felt safer when I saw him. In time, when I heard how he shared his wisdom, I felt a growing strength in me. I learnt a lot from him as a human being, because of the human being he is, as much in the space between words as in the ideas transmitted. "
