A little about me...
I'm Kathryn Wright
and I am a child behavioral
therapist in the Tampa area. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and earned my master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Saint Leo University. My specialty is child-centered play therapy, and I am currently completing my certification as a Registered Play Therapist. I am passionate about working with children and families to help them become their best selves.
At Wright Therapy for Kids, children are provided a safe and calm atmosphere where they feel comfortable to be themselves and play freely without any repercussions or judgment. I work with your children to help them explore their thoughts and emotions through play and teach them to work through their problems at an age-appropriate level. Parent involvement is welcomed, and I encourage frequent and open communication. I also offer parent training if you would like further support, tips, and techniques that can be used at home to build a strong parent-child relationship.
Wright Therapy for Kids is subcontracted with and located within The Kid Counselor Center.

What to Expect...
Please contact me to schedule an in-person initial consultation.
Initial consultations are free of charge and allow us to get acquainted and discuss the therapeutic process in more detail. To respect the child and be able to talk free of judgment, consultations are with the significant adults in the child’s life, and I ask that children not be present.
After agreeing on therapeutic interventions, we will move forward to schedule consistent, once a week, sessions. The amount of total sessions required is determined by the individual child’s needs. Termination of services is discussed openly between the therapist and caregivers.
Caregivers are essential in the therapeutic process and I always want to ensure that the caregivers are well informed and equipped with the information and strategies they need to support the child.
I hold your child’s and your family’s confidentiality and therapeutic relationship in a very high regard. I ask that personal information or the child’s struggles are never discussed in front of the child or in the waiting room. Although we do not discuss information in front of the child, I make it a priority to have frequent adult only consultations to discuss progress and interventions.
How Much do Services Cost?
Please contact me for a free initial parent consultation. Session details, including fees, can be discussed at that time.
Take a look inside Wright Therapy for Kids:
Wright Therapy for Kids is a private pay practice. I value the privacy of my clients and have chosen not to participate in insurance panels. Consequently, I am not required to provide diagnostic codes that remain on a child’s permanent mental health record. All information is kept strictly between you and the therapist and is not shared with a third party.
Payment is required at the time of treatment. Cash, checks, or credit card are accepted.
If your insurance plan includes out-of-network coverage, I can provide documentation (using an ICD-10 code that indicates a diagnosis is being deferred) for reimbursement of session fees. Full payment is required at time of treatment, and then you will be responsible to submit the documentation to your insurance company. Your insurance provider will reimburse you directly.
Please call your insurance company to confirm your out-of-network coverage and percentage of reimbursement before scheduling the free consultation.
Medicaid (StayWell, Amerigroup/Simply Healthcare, Sunshine, etc.)
Because I am a private-pay practice, I cannot legally treat children on any Medicaid plans.
Please call your Medicaid provider and request a list of approved mental health providers who are in your network.
