    TYSONS CORNER, VA, April 25, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Kia Robinson Wilson has been recognized for inclusion in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Ms. Wilson's unwavering dedication to trauma recovery and mental health advocacy has established her as an eminent figure in the field. As the visionary founder and CEO of Phoenix Rising Counseling and Consulting LLC, she has meticulously crafted an oasis of healing in Tysons Corner, Virginia. Since its inception in 2020, Phoenix Rising has risen as a beacon of hope for those entangled in the throes of relational trauma, offering a sanctuary tailored to individual recovery journeys.

With over 19 years of professional experience, her entrepreneurial voyage was not one of happenstance but a deliberate leap of faith during the tumultuous times of a global pandemic. Leaving a secure government position to launch a specialized practice in trauma therapy showcased her indomitable spirit and unwavering commitment to filling a vital gap in mental health services. Under her guidance, Phoenix Rising has flourished, expanding its reach with a dedicated team of four clinicians and additional support staff, all united in their mission to foster a conducive environment for healing and growth.

Before Phoenix Rising came to fruition, Ms. Wilson honed her skills and insight within the challenging terrains of public mental health systems as the Civil Mental Commitment Hearing and Mandatory Outpatient Treatment supervisor in Prince William County, Virginia. Serving in the second-largest county in the state, she acquired a profound understanding of the broader mental health ecosystem, an experience that enriched her ability to navigate and mould her private practice successfully. Her extensive career also encapsulates impactful roles with marginalized communities as a foster care social worker and child protective services worker, further diversifying her expertise and empathy in addressing trauma.

Ms. Wilson's academic endeavors at Hampton University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Pre-law followed by a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling, have been the bedrock of her professional achievements. Her pursuit of excellence continued with her attaining esteemed certifications as a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor, Certified Tele-mental Health Provider, Certified Dialectical Behavior Therapist, and Certified Level II Clinical Trauma Professional. These accolades not only underscore her profound knowledge and skill but also her commitment to evolving with the field to best serve those in need.

Ms. Wilson's narrative is not just a professional chronicle but also a profoundly personal journey of resilience and healing. As a survivor of complex PTSD, who has bravely navigated the path to recovery from abuse, her story is one of unyielding perseverance. Her experiences, underscored by the challenges of being a neurodivergent woman of color, have not only shaped her into the resilient individual she is today but also deeply inform her practice, imbuing it with a rich sense of empathy, understanding, and commitment to advocacy and change.

Ms. Wilson's journey is a testament to her pioneering spirit, deep-seated empathy, and unwavering dedication to mental health advocacy and trauma recovery. Through Phoenix Rising, she continues to illuminate paths to healing, embodying the resilience and rebirth that her practice's name so powerfully signifies.
