About

Venita Wright, MS, LMFT, RPT

Hello! I am Venita Wright and I am so happy you are visiting my site! First and foremost I am a Christian. I am a follower of Christ and thankful to be adopted into His family to be called a Child of God. I am a mother of two beautiful daughters through adoption. I was happily married for 18 years. Then, in 2018 my husband was unexpectedly diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. We fought a brave battle but ultimately  in 2019,  the battle ended and my husband entered into the full presence of the Lord. I can rejoice that he is in the presence of the Lord but of course grieve the loss. I am a member of a local church where I serve in the Children's Ministry. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, watching movies, and traveling. I welcome the opportunity to partner with you on your journey toward growth and change. I hope you will be inspired to move from where you are and further into the light of God's love.
