Dr. Wright provides psychological services to ages across the lifespan, focusing primarily on children from 6 years of age through adults in their 60’s. She conducts psychological evaluations for the school systems, including the college and graduate school levels. Most of her patients are referred for treatment of trauma, the many forms of anxiety, depression, eating disorder issues, learning disabilities, AD/HD, and adjustments in life.
Dr. Wright is blessed by having her husband, Carroll Hoselton, come along beside her, and through a faith-walk, opened their own practice in August 2015. She and her husband are trained as facilitators in the program Prepare/Enrich, a program that utilizes Christian principles in either helping engaged couples prepare for an upcoming marriage, or by enhancing a married couples’ relationship. She takes no credit for the success of their practice, but claims Matthew 5:16 “let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Carroll claims Isaiah 40:31 “Those who hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles.”
