About Me

Aloha and Welcome! I’m BethAnne Kapansky Wright, Psy.D., and I help guide, facilitate and educate on intuitive living through my books, speaking, online courses, & individual sessions. I am an Author, Artist, Empath, Channel, Intuitive Teacher and Spiritual Mentor. I draw on my background as a psychologist along with multidimensional wisdoms to help people find clarity, listen to their heart’s intelligence and trust their invisible path of soul. I’m the award-winning author of the grief book, Lamentations of The Sea, its sequel, Transformations of The Sun, and several books of poetry. Over the last few years I’ve been on one wild, beautiful leap of faith, which has brought me to the island of Kauai and into a deeper, more magical relationship with the universe. I understand how hard it can be to trust and follow the deeper self, which is why I feel called to help support others on their intuitive paths.

Are you looking for a space to nourish your soul and allow your heart room to grow? I’ve created self-paced, easy to follow courses designed to support your journey. Combining psychology, spirituality and creativity, I’ve brought multidimensional wisdoms into each course to offer a truly enriching experience that helps you heal and transform.


"This World Needs Your Heart"
FREE Course

With materials created to facilitate awareness, self-reflection, and heart-wisdom this free course offers tools to help participants drop into their own heart journey and take action steps towards a more heart-centered life. With insight, perspective, and compassionate guidance, This World Needs Your Heart invites each of us to live a more authentic, magical, braver life. Perfect for anyone looking to do some soul-care and tap into your heart magic.

“The Heart of Empathy”

As an empath who has learned a great deal about managing my gift through my background as a psychologist and intuitive guide, I wanted to shine a brighter light on the path of the empath and support others on their journeys. The gift of empathy can be a gorgeous thing, but it can also be filled with challenges due to our heightened emotional sensitivity! However, if we know how to navigate those challenges we will begin to find liberation and joy in our gifts and empathic hearts.

“The Alchemy of Grief”

The Alchemy of Grief is designed as a healing space for the griever and is a unique course on grief, crafted through a psychological, spiritual, creative and personal lens. With sensitivity, care, and wisdom from my own grief journey, I hope to meet you wherever you are in your grief journey and hold sacred space for processing loss. Grief may be the hardest journey we ever have to take, and yet there is hope, light, and phenomenal love found there as well that has the power to transform us.



I write and illustrate books for all ages. Color and Nature both nurture my soul and highly inspire my work. In addition to several books of poetry, I am the author of the award winning Lamentations of The Sea: 111 passages on grief, love, loss, and letting go and its sequel, Transformations of The Sun: 122 passages on finding new life after loss. Whatever I write, my goal is that my work be anchored in joy, love, and the exploration of what it means to be fully human. I’m currently working on creating a set of magical affirmation cards, and my newest book, Things of That Nature: Words for the Mystic Heart, will be out in August 2019!





I love to speak, teach, and work with people in group settings. From public speaking on psychoeducational topics, to facilitating group therapy, to leading a monthly woman's healing circle; I have had the opportunity to speak and work with groups in a diversity of ways throughout my career. I am deeply interested in supporting others on their grief journeys, teaching on topics that facilitate personal and spiritual transformation, and creating sacred healing circles. With humor, warmth, compassion, and wisdom, I aim to teach, lead, and share in such a way as to help others develop greater awareness, discovery, and insight. Please contact me if you are interested in having me speak or facilitate.
