About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), licensed in Indiana, New Jersey, and Virginia with over 10 years of experience working in multiple different capacities in the social work field including therapy and behavior management. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, anger management, self esteem/self love, and family conflict. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm, interactive and client focused. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion. My approach is individualized and I will use the best modality to address your concerns. I have experience with using several different therapeutic modalities, but the most commonly used are cognitive-behavioral, solution focused therapy, motivational interviewing, and client centered therapy.

It takes courage to seek help with taking the first steps towards change and pursuing a more fulfilling and happier life. You have already done so much by taking that first step. Congratulations! I truly believe you already have what you need inside of you to face the challenges and/or make the changes you want to make. You just need someone to help you tap into it. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. It is my hope that I can help you become the best version of yourself and help you realize that you can do and be whatever your heart desires.

I look forward to working with you!

Qiana is thoughtful, understanding, and patient. She knows how and when to react to what I say, and isn't afraid to give me hard truths. It's been a pleasure building a relationship with her and I'm looking forward to continuing to grow with her.

Qiana is amazing, she was attentive to my concerns, and most importantly to me helped make a plan that didn't put any pressure on me. She helped me set healthy expectations and I am glad to be able to count on her for support.

Qiana and I instantly connected. She is up front and personable. She gives me things to think about and try/practice each week in order to improve my life.

Qiana is passionate about helping her clients achieve their goals in therapy. She also has a strong interest in her field in general and is always striving to learn more to provide a better experience. I never felt like I was receiving canned, one-size-fits-all advice from Qiana. She listens very intently and provides appropriate feedback and support, always checking in to make sure what we’re doing aligns with goals that I set out at the beginning of therapy. I’ve had other BH therapists and others outside of BH as well and I’ve never seen the kind of passion and commitment that Qiana has. Thanks, Qiana!
