Qiana Wright has an extensive lineage advocating and working in the human services and education field. She serves as a Clinical Therapist for Onyx Therapy Group, as well as a Professional School Counselor in the local school system. In the last 6 years as a School Counselor, she has helped children and families reach their full potential in social and emotional learning. Before serving as a School Counselor, Qiana served over 19 years in education by beginning her career as a certified Elementary Education Teacher.
Qiana obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Hampton University in Hampton, VA, and her Master’s in Counseling from Trinity Washington University, in Washington DC. Her educational background and experience allow her to effectively service her clients at Onyx Therapy Group. The theoretical approach Qiana prefers is behavioral focused with the frequent use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused interventions with clients. She is passionate about seeing her clients
grow and strives to continue to enhance her therapeutic craft, to ensure she gives her clients the best she has to offer each and every time.
Qiana has continued her training in mental health through various training addressing trauma, child abuse, suicide intervention, crisis prevention, and most recently became certified Youth Mental Health First Aider. She eagerly embraces the opportunity to continue to grow in the mental health field and strengthen her professional portfolio. The driving force behind Qiana becoming a counselor is because she believes individuals become the best people they can be when they are provided with the proper guidance and tools. She also believes that every human being has the ability to change
and grow, with the proper guidance and resources. This mantra has translated when serving adult learners as a facilitator for parenting and family social-emotional lead courses.
