Amy Wright, MSW, LCSWA

Outpatient Psychotherapist in Chapel Hill

Hello! My name is Amy (they or she pronouns) and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate (LCSWA) and an Outpatient Psychotherapist at Three Oaks Behavioral Health & Wellness in Chapel Hill. I completed my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree at UNC Chapel Hill, where I also completed my undergraduate double major in Psychology and Communication Studies. I developed my passion for therapy through my own experiences of suffering, healing, and growth.

My therapeutic style is laid-back, conversational, and many people find me to be endearingly quirky. I use an eclectic combination of multiple therapy modalities as I tailor my approach to what works best for your particular strengths, interests, and needs. Some examples of modalities and frameworks I often incorporate are inner child work, Internal Family Systems (IFS, or parts work), Functional Analytical Psychotherapy (FAP), the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT), Teyber’s interpersonal process model, self-compassion, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and somatic (body-focused) techniques.

My specialties are developmental trauma (confusing, stressful, neglectful, or abusive experiences or environments that you faced at any stage of your life, from conception through adulthood), dissociative identity/parts, interpersonal trauma, and spiritual growth. I work primarily with adults and am LGBTQIA+ affirming. I strive to be culturally humble with people of all identities and spiritual or religious affiliations, seeking to understand and focus on the goals and values that are important to you. I always welcome your feedback if you would like something to be different in sessions.

In my free time, I like to paint, write poetry, listen to hard rock music, dance, watch Netflix, and ask my loved ones for status updates on their cats. Spoiler alert - their cats are either sleeping, staring at squirrels, or meowing for food.

If you would like to get to know me or ask questions before deciding whether to schedule a first appointment with me, I am happy to schedule a free 15-20 minute phone consult with you.

I look forward to welcoming you to the practice!
