Helping kids and teens succeed in school and in life by overcoming obstacles and gaining confidence to reach their full potential
Model best-in-class care, using data-driven methodologies, that help kids and teens reach their potential, while also improving the well-being of our client families and staff.
We show up as our authentic selves and we do the right thing every time. Our decisions are guided by 1) our professional assessment of what’s in our clients’ best interest and 2) data-driven, research-supported approaches and methodologies.
We stay plugged in to the latest data and developments in the field. We encourage innovation and have a culture of continuous improvement as it relates to every aspect of our clients’ experience.
We seek to be clear, complete and connected. We respond in a transparent, timely manner to questions and requests from our clients, prospects and partners. We are proactive with important information or issues to address. We facilitate and advocate for the needs of our client families with their schools, physicians, and other partners.
Compassion is an empathetic understanding of a person’s feelings, accompanied by a desire to help. We believe going beyond empathy is what led us to this profession. We strive to contribute to whole-person health and well-being – for our clients and their families.
We design our work around our lives, and not our lives around our work. We model new ways of working that enable a better blend of personal and professional. We protect our well-being because we know we can’t pour from an empty cup. We desire flexibility in our own lives and we extend that same understanding to our clients and partners.
Wright Psychology and Counseling was founded by Dr. Maggie Wright in 2006. Starting her practice as a solo practitioner, Dr. Wright carved out a niche in the Louisville market, quickly becoming sought after for her comprehensive evaluations and expertise in diagnosing key learning differences, like dyslexia.
Parents valued her thorough approach which includes interviews, observations and evidence-based testing methods, as well as a comprehensive and action-oriented written report.
“Our reports provide not only the “nuts and bolts” of the evaluation results, but a true roadmap for intervention and accommodations.”
As demand for her services quickly grew, Dr. Wright expanded to a group practice, providing oversight and clinical supervision so as to nurture and train the next generation of clinical psychologists.
This enabled more families to benefit from the practices’ clinical expertise without long waitlists.
As well, staff psychologists began offering therapy for a wide variety of concerns including Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, Behavioral Disorders, Giftedness/Twice-Exceptional Learners and Learning Disorders. Group therapy focusing on improving executive functioning skills has become a staple of the practice as well.
In 2022, Mrs. Amber Napier, M.S., Ed. joined the team to provide ongoing support and follow up services to each of our evaluation clients. With a background as a certified teacher and administrator in public schools, Mrs. Napier is able to advise client families on school choice, IEP/504 Plan decisions, and provide additional classroom recommendations that go above and beyond those offered in the evaluation report. She is also able to connect families to local resources and, if needed, attend school meetings as a parent-support person and advocate.
Today, our dedicated staff carries on the tradition that was begun by Dr. Wright of providing high-quality and hands on services and support to our clients. At Wright Psychology, our clients are treated like family. Our team works together to provide a personalized, well-rounded treatment approach to each of our clients and their families.
“We are passionate about helping children reach their full potential and this passion is what fuels our work.”
Dr. Wright believes in “giving back” to the Louisville community and frequently offers presentations and talks to local schools and advocacy organizations to help raise awareness about the importance of diagnosis and remediation of learning differences, as well as helping caring adults such as parents and educators to learn how they can improve the mental health of the children and teens in their lives.
