About Life by Design Therapy

Life by Design Therapy


Melody Wright, LMFT founded Life by Design Therapy out of the need to bring holistic and somatic therapy that represents the diversity of our Bay Area communities.

Our therapists are dedicated to creating a safe and healing space to help individuals, couples, and families connect, grow, and heal. We believe every person deserves to feel a sense of safety, connection, and empowerment in their lives.

Our therapists value cultural and sexual diversity and we aim to provide a safe and supportive environment for growth and transformation.

Life by Design Therapy takes pride in giving back to our diverse Bay Area communities and provides workshops, therapy groups, and trainings to support healing, growth, and empowerment for ALL.

Meet ashley!



Hello, I am Ashley Gregory (pronouns she/ her/ hers), and I am a somatic psychotherapist grounded in the intersections of social, cultural, political and economic studies. My somatic work is a reflection of your comfort, interests and unique process. By bringing your attention to movements, gestures and sensations, you learn to build an inner trust. I create a space for you to re-connect with the most important person in your life--you. I aspire to be genuinely with you, feeling your sorrows and celebrating your triumphs.

Together, we can bring your priorities and abilities into sharper focus, increasing your capacity to make changes relevant to your everyday life.
