Nora Wright, MSW, LSW

Licensed Social Worker

“A partnership is often the most important relationship we have, but it can be the most challenging. My favorite part of my work is the moments when couples can see each other in a new way to find a softness or closeness they have really been longing to experience.”

I joined the Center for Grief and Trauma Therapy because I believe that people deserve to have dedicated places to go to grieve, to process traumatic experiences and to renew themselves and their relationships. I value being part of a team so committed to bringing specialized knowledge to the healing process. I bring a particular expertise in what makes intimate relationships so important, so high stakes and also how couples can be guided back to vulnerability and close connection. 

As a couple’s therapist, I ground my practice in the Gottman Method and Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Therapy. These practical, research-based processes help couples learn how to move past repeating patterns of distress, towards a sense of renewal and enjoyment. I welcome people of all cultures, religions, genders and sexual orientations. I offer counseling in English and Spanish.
