About My Clients

Whether you're seeking real relief from anxiety or depression, needing help establishing better boundaries, questioning your identity, sexuality, or personal relationships or just having trouble managing the day-to-day, we can help. At Life by Design Therapy we believe change is possible for you. We offer holistic and somatic therapy to support you in navigating life's challenges without having to dismiss, avoid, or disconnect from what you truly want.

My Background and Approach

We view therapy as a collaborative process in which new ways of understanding and relating to yourself, others, and the world can be experienced. Our goal is to create a safe space for you to explore new possibilities, challenge limiting beliefs, heal from painful experiences, and stand confidently in your truths. As a practice, we bring a diverse range of racial and cultural backgrounds, lived experiences, and we have a dedication to supporting our BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities. We offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments. Easy scheduling and payment options. Culturally-competent therapists. Office locations in Berkeley and Richmond (currently telehealth for anyone in California). Please visit our website to learn more about how we can support you or schedule a phone consultation with our founder, Melody Wright, LMFT to determine who may be the best fit for you.
