Kelly Wright, M.A., LPC
Clinical Director of
Journeys Christian Counseling

Hi, I'm Kelly.

For 18 years I was in private practice Christian Counseling and helped individuals and couples deal with the challenges of life. In 2013, I felt God calling me from the clinical counseling field into ministry, specifically the ministry of spiritual direction.

I received my certification in spiritual direction from Sustainable Faith and started Juniper Tree, A Place for Spiritual Consultation and Direction . Eventually I joined the staff at Woodcrest Chapel as Spiritual Director, leading sessions, retreats, workshops, and classes.

Hartley and I have been married for over twenty years and together we lead the Marriage Ministry at Woodcrest and Journeys. We have two incredible kids, Madison and Micah.

I am excited to come back into the counseling arena as Clinical Director of Journeys Christian Counseling. I will be supervising counselors, as well as leading marriage retreats, intensives, and workshops.
