I help women who are struggling with self-image, anxiety, depression, or past hurts or traumas and feel ready to explore their inner selves, emotional connections and personal growth. I also help couples who struggle with connection, intimacy, and infidelity and are looking to reconnect, repair and build a deeper and stronger relationship.
I believe that engaging relationships are essential to a fulfilling life, and I work with clients to explore how relational and emotional histories and experiences inform their lives today and help them to heal and grow. I firmly believe in my clients’ individuality and the space I create for exploration and healing is one we build collaboratively. With clarity comes hope and healing, and I’m honored to take that journey with you.
–Olivia Wright, MA, AMFT
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from California State University Sacramento. Understanding people and how to navigate personal paths and goals to our authentic selves has always been a passion of mine. I have always found myself drawn to careers where taking space to explore what clients really want and then helping them get there were central. When looking for a more fulfilling career for myself, it was clear that those experiences were what I loved, and I knew becoming a therapist was my calling.
I graduated from Alliant International University with a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, and began working with individuals and couples, where I have found my career to be a perfect fit. To further help my clients with PTSD and trauma histories, I also received my Level 1 certification in Brainspotting.
I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#128714, Supervised by Michelle Hutchings, MA, LMFT #102246). Before joining The Davis Group, I worked in a local non-profit agency, primarily with adult women processing complex and past familial/childhood traumas, LGBTQIA+ members on identity work and relational/family distress, and couples seeking repair and reconnection from infidelity, intimacy, and role/equity issues.
I have experience working with adult females, the LGBTQIA+ community, and individuals struggling with complex-PTSD/childhood trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and identity. I am also experienced in working with couples who are dealing with issues of disconnection, infidelity, betrayal, and sexual intimacy.
I am Level 1 certified in Brainspotting, a short-term intensive treatment for PTSD and trauma history
I grew up in the greater Sacramento area, in a family of local business owners and artists in the symphony and theatre communities. I hold precious memories of my family time together, particularly of the weekend poker games that lasted hours on end and were punctuated with raucous laughter from the inspired high-and-low brow jokes my family loved to indulge in.
After school I moved around California, settling in Los Angeles where I met my future husband, before returning to Sacramento to begin our life together. We are proud parents to our teen and enjoy traveling, experiencing new places and cultures through food (New Orleans Creole and Cajun cuisines are top favorites), playing board and card games, and introducing our kid to our favorite 80s movies and music. I enjoy my personal downtime with reading, cooking, baking, embroidery crafts, singing loudly in the car, and planning our next traveling adventures. Spending time together with family, chosen-family and friends is where I always want to be, and I strongly believe in the curative power of a good belly laugh.
