Jeffrey Wright

Psychotherapist & Adjunct Professor
LGBTQ Psychodynamic Therapist

As your therapist, my role is to improve your ability to listen to yourself, and support you as we figure out together what you need to be more fulfilled. I believe that as you start to tell your truth and confront yourself within a therapeutic space, barriers to your wellness can start to be lifted. My background in mental health includes working with LGBTQ youth at the Trevor Project, providing bilingual counseling (English/Spanish) at the Bronx Family & Child Center, and counseling LGBTQ adults + couples at the Institute for Human Identity. I hold two masters degrees in Psychological Counseling from Columbia University, and have a BA in Philosophy + Economics from the University of Arizona. Currently I am an adjunct professor of counseling psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University. I recently completed a two-year post-masters psychodynamic psychotherapy program at NYU School of Medicine’s PANY (Psychoanalytic Association of New York) and a three-year advanced graduate certificate in Gender Studies and Queer Studies at SUNY Empire State College. Furthermore, I have a 500-hour yoga teacher training certificate and I incorporate yogic principles of mindbody awareness in my work as a therapist.
