Solutions of Hickory



David M. Zealy-Wright, MA, LPC, LCAS, CSI


I believe that every single person has the ability and the right to achieve their full potential. I make it my mission as your therapist to be honest, accepting, and supportive. My unique perspective has come from my education, training, and past experiences as a clinician as well as my own life experiences. I am a passionate coach, teacher, and clinician and I will bring an energetic and strengths-focused approach to our work together. I believe that we all have the ability to redefine negative experiences into positive opportunities for growth.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist, and a Clinical Supervisor Intern. I graduated from Catawba Valley Community College in 2005 earning an Associate in Arts, Lenoir-Rhyne University in 2008 earning a BA in Psychology, and in 2010 an MA in Agency Counseling. I enjoy working with diverse populations but specifically I have experience with teens, adults and couples. My specialty areas include addiction, depression, anxiety, life changes, men’s issues, relationships, and LGBTQIA issues. I also have over four years experience working with medication assisted treatment for opiate dependency and offer clinical supervision services for provisionally licensed substance abuse professionals. As an addictions specialist I also believe that addiction is a disorder, not a moral failing.

I am a native of Greensboro, North Carolina, but have lived in Hickory for over 16 years with my spouse. I am passionate about theatre, music, creative arts and the importance of play as an adult. I am active in the community, serving on the board for OUTright youth, and volunteering with various community organizations and local community theaters. I am also a member of the Catawba Valley Association of Counselors and Therapists.

Life is a journey; I look forward to assisting you in yours.
