Rhonda Wright is equipped and authorized to see clients with substance use issues and family/friends of those involved with substance use.

As a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, I support individuals with the disease of addiction to help them find a new way of life. This journey involves a changing behaviors, recognizing and learning how to deal with unhealthy emotions and irrational beliefs, and learning how to use mindfulness as a skill. I like to let people know that putting down the substance is easy, it is keeping it down where the work comes in because using drugs and alcohol is an outward expression of what is going on internally.

All relationships are grounded on a foundation that two or more people either choose to build upon or destroy. As individuals grow to know each other they decide to invest in the relationship. With this investment, there will be conflicts and disagreements. This is a very crucial area of the relationship because the decision needs to be made whether or not a withdrawal should be made or if the relationship is valuable enough to continue the investment. As the relationship grows the investment grows and the foundation becomes stronger. No matter the storms that may come what has been built may be destroyed but the foundation will remain where rebuilding and repair can begin.  The way I view therapy is from a solution-focused approach and with this approach I meet people where they are and help them repair and rebuild those areas that have been hit by strong storms.

My goal is to help you find your strengths and develop your identity as an individual, as a couple, and as a family. We are always changing and growing in stages and through these stages, those in our lives are affected by the change. I believe that when a person can change the way they treat themselves they will change the way they treat others.

Rhonda is a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC) in Texas (#15662) with a passion for helping individuals and couples overcome addiction and achieve mental wellness. Her robust educational background includes a Master of Arts in Theology, which provides a strong foundation in understanding the spiritual aspects of addiction and recovery; a Master of Arts in Human Services Counseling with Addiction Cognate, which focuses on the therapeutic skills and knowledge necessary to address addiction within a broader human services context; and the near completion of a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, which deepens her understanding of mental health conditions that often co-occur with addiction.

Rhonda is proficient in theoretical orientations such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and Social Learning Theory. The approach she uses most is to help clients is a client-centered orientation, meeting the individual and couple at their point of need and concerns. She believes the client-therapist relationship is an alliance where they meet to collaborate on helping the client gain wellness and wholeness. She is a minister trained to provide pastoral counseling if needed as well as a published author of “Knowing Jesus in the Broken places-Wounds Healed by His Scars” and a daily devotional journal “A Land Flowing with Milk and Honey.” This combination of degrees allows her to offer a holistic approach to treatment, addressing her clients’ physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
