Redwood Resilience | Dr. Gail E. Wright

Living Wholeheartedly and helping people thrive are the unifying themes in my life

As a pediatric cardiologist, I have been listening to hearts for the past 20 years. What I hear is a yearning for an authentic presence to bolster resilience and an inner sense of belonging.

We are carrying a lot. Allow me to help you thrive. My offerings enhance a sense of meaning, purpose, and well-being through experiential exercises, mindfulness practices, reflective writing, yoga, and outdoor adventures.

Having worked for decades with children and families in a pediatric cardiac intensive care unit, and with those living with serious chronic health conditions, I have cultivated a healing presence to hold uncertainty, fear, and vulnerability. I have gained a deep understanding of the preciousness of each moment and the importance of finding joy and expressing gratitude every day.

What Makes You Feel Most Alive?

Let’s Create Space to Reflect and Remember

My holistic approach, at times playful and at other times deep, guides people to focus on what matters most to them. I have extensive professional experience mentoring and coaching diverse groups- including clinicians, patients, athletes, writers, parents, and youth community leaders. I am often complimented for having a knack for drawing out an individual’s potential, even when he or she cannot yet recognize it.

Having excelled as a collegiate athlete and team captain, I continue to be a connector and team builder. These skills allow me to help individuals feel less alone, as well as to energize groups for program development, child health advocacy, and national learning health collaboratives. Meaningful connections are healing and sustaining.

My creative writing often addresses the impact of political and societal injustice on child health. My life has been greatly influenced by pediatrician and wisdom teacher, Dr. Rachel Remen, the poetry of David Whyte, and the call to the sacred in wilderness in the writing of Terry Tempest Williams and Mary Oliver.

I express love in all my practices-

medicine, motherhood, and meditation
