Relational Trauma Recovery Specialist
Helping those who didn’t have good childhoods
finally have wonderful adulthoods.
Welcome, I’m Annie Wright.
I’m a licensed psychotherapist deeply committed to supporting the well-being of those who, while they didn’t come from the best childhoods, long to finally create wonderful adulthoods for themselves.
I’m a national expert in relational trauma recovery, specifically supporting the adult children of the mood- and personality-disordered to help them explore, heal, and move forward from their pasts towards a future that feels whole and beautiful no matter where they started from.
From my boutique therapy center in Berkeley, I offer one-on-one therapy services and oversee my staff of talented, trauma-informed clinicians. In addition to this, I’m a published mental health author, and I produce digital content and online products designed to support your relational trauma recovery.
No matter where you live in the world, I look forward to supporting you in any way I can.
Ways To Work With Annie
I offer a wide variety of free resources – including a free masterclass and over 120 essays – to help you no matter where you live in the world.
Transform your life and learn how to navigate your most challenging relationships through my signature online program and group coaching course.
Annie has such a warm, authentic presence. I felt immediately comfortable with her the moment I started talking to her.
[Annie] is a caring, dedicated and skilled therapist. If you are looking to increase your well-being with the help of a therapist – contact Annie. If you are dealing with relationship problems, depression or anxiety or you want to foster a more loving relationship with yourself, increase your self-esteem and/or develop a more positive relationship with food and body image – with Annie you will be in excellent hands.
I love Annie! Every time I speak with her I feel listened to and respected. She has been a valuable confidant and supporter in my process of self-discovery.
Annie has a way of being in the world that is beautifully intuitive, warm, compassionate, and comforting. Yet she can also get right to the heart of an issue with a fierce kindness that few people truly embody. I highly recommend Annie as a therapist and coach. She is one-of-a-kind and actually walks her talk.
I have worked with Annie for several years now, and have the utmost respect and appreciation for her in her practice. I find her communication style to be warm when needed, funny when appropriate, diligent in timing, and direct when most helpful. I consider her one of my more helpful resources in life, and would highly recommend her to anyone in need of guidance, support, continuity, or change.
Annie helped me – to put it in her words – “fully step into” my life, after helping me escape from a very unhealthy relationship. If I hadn’t moved overseas (a huge life decision that her sessions assisted with immensely), I would have continued my weekly sessions with her indefinitely for my overall mental health. Highly, highly recommended!
No matter where you live in the world, there are ways of working with me and receiving support.

Sometimes our healing happens unconsciously and in very practical, pedestrian ways. A therapist explains this and how you can do this, too.
