Professional Interests

Galaxina G. Wright, Ph.D. is a registered mental health counseling intern (RMHCI; FL), and a national certified counselor (NCC). Dr. Wright’s primary research focus is exploring career development barriers among historically marginalized populations (e.g., BIPOC populations, low socioeconomic status communities, individuals living with disabilities, LGTBQ+ populations, etc.). Most recently, she served as the primary investigator for an empirical research study evaluating the impact of Project P.A.T.H. (Paving Access to Hope), where she partnered with a non-profit organization and revised a job search curriculum for unemployed job seekers. Dr. Wright’s research interests are inspired from her former work as a social worker and common barriers she’s observed working as a career counselor. She has been published in the Career Development Quarterly, Professional School Counselor, Journal of Employment Counseling, and Journal of Technology in Counselor Education and Supervision.

Dr. Wright has clinical counseling experience in a variety of settings including college career counseling centers, non-profit career counseling, private practice, and after-school programs. Currently, with her earned master’s degree in Marriage, Couple & Family Therapy, she primarily works with children and adolescents within communities of color utilizing narrative therapy techniques. She also carries a background providing clinical supervision and conducting research for school-based mental health therapy interventions within elementary schools.
