Dr. Ellen L.Wright, Ph.D. Psychologist

People enter therapy because they want to improve something in their lives. Often the timing of this choice to seek therapy is not ideal - you may be having family or work stress, you may be depressed, anxious, tired and unable to think clearly or make decisions. At these times you need a therapist who is well respected, thoughtful, and capable.

I am a licensed Psychologist who has been in private practice in Center City, Philadelphia for over 25 years. I work with adults and young adults (16 years +) facing emotional, interpersonal, career and medical challenges. I provide individual, couples and group therapy for the following issues:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression - Mood Disorders
  • Relationship Issues
  • Stress Management
  • Professional and Career Development
  • Performance Issues for Musicians
  • Parenting Concerns
  • Coping with Medical Illness
  • Navigating Life Transitions (college, mid-life, career, loss)

What I bring to our work together:

  • Breadth of knowledge and resources
  • A pragmatic treatment approach that takes into account your real-life constraints
    (time, money, job and family)
  • The ability to identify attitudes and behaviors that block progress
  • Sense of humor that sets you at ease and helps you look at your situation more positively
