My mission is to help people live a life that aligns with their true essence.
A PASSION FOR TRANSFORMATION, GROWTH AND FREEDOM
There have been many moments in my life where I would think to myself how much easier things would be if I had some sort of guidebook. And if not a guidebook, then maybe at least an example of someone else who was experiencing the same sort of things that I was going through.
Someone I could look to as an example of how to get through it all because they had already made it out on the other end better, stronger, and more equipped for whatever was to come their way next.
I was looking for someone I could engage with that could meet me at a place of understanding and genuine empathy to show me that I wasn’t alone. I wanted to know that – with just the right amount of patience, will, and self-help techniques – I would get through it all.
My name is Ramona and I am looking to be that lighthouse for others who feel like they are lost in the sea of their own situational uniqueness.
Nothing gives life perspective quite like having your own life at risk with a cancer diagnosis, all the while raising two children as a single mother. Going through the treatments, which consisted of chemo, targeted therapy, radiation, and multiple surgeries, was an incredibly scary and hard time that really pushed me to the limits of my strength.
It also forced me to face hard truths about the life I had been living. Before my diagnosis, I was struggling working multiple jobs, not getting sleep or taking care of myself, and although I was taking care of my kids, the time spent with them was not of quality but rather in line with necessity for their survival. Everything revolved around making ends meet. I was not fighting for my life to keep living like this. Things had to change.
I’m not the same person I was those years ago. I’ve come a long way and achieved a great deal. Finding the power within to make difficult decisions necessary to keep me and my family well on the toughest of days left an impression on me that has become a source of my inner strength. I made positive events out of negative ones and changed the lens of how I see the world. Things are much clearer now.
So how does my backstory help me help you? Well, I don’t just know the conceptual methods of the work I do. I know what it is like to be in a difficult spot wishing I had the answer key to those struggles. Time, training, and experience have built my skillset into the tools I have now and wish to share with you.
My work with hypnotherapy and RTT comes from my drive to help clients reach their ‘mountain tops’, their ‘finish lines’, and to surpass the barriers they face.
My experience was hard-earned but never wasted. My journey isn’t complete. Neither is yours. Let’s see how I can, for a short while, walk next to you until you’re ready to resume on your own.
My healing journey has been my greatest teacher. It has helped me discover myself, overcome and heal blocks to design a life that aligns with my true essence. I spent a lot of time discovering, practicing, and studying ways to do this, and I want to share what I learned with as many as possible.
By making the best of all things we make the most of ourselves.
Not wanting to let cancer get the best of me and finding the silver lining in a horrible situation, I modeled mastectomy bras for AnaOno, a lingerie line made for breast cancer patients and survivors. I was honored to have a bra named after me, and because of this, Soma, where I also modeled AnaOno, did a feature on me. The bra is named the Rora and was voted Best Wireless Bra for After Surgery by Good Housekeeping and has been featured in publications like Vogue. Imagine that!

Going through a rough time?
Finding ways to shift your perceptions will help a lot.
I'd love for you to read this article I wrote for Wildfire Magazine describing
how shifting my perceptions helped get me through chemo treatments.
Wildfire Magazine published this article of mine in their December 2018 "Parenting With Cancer" issue.
Clever Costumes for Bald People
by Ramona Robinson
It wasn’t clear at the time, but looking back, I realize what an important lesson I was learning and teaching my children. It was a lesson in finding ways to shift perceptions.
There was a time during my cancer treatments when I could hardly get out of bed (or off the toilet). Browsing the Internet was my only form of contact with the outside world. It was during one of these voyeuristic social escapes nestled inside of my sheets that I came across an article that made a deep impression on me. The article was cancer-related and featured an image of a bald lady dressed up as Wonder Woman. There was something about the familiar costume mixed with her hairless features that sparked excitement in my soul. I wondered what other costumes might be fitting for someone going through cancer treatments. Excited to have found something new to browse, I started scrolling through costume ideas.
Before cancer, I used to love making costumes for my children. Everything was hand-made, and I would spend a great deal of time sewing our crazy costume ideas together that received lots of smiles, compliments, and yes, extra candy for my boys. The excitement in their eyes was undeniable every time. It’s the best feeling in the world to know your children are happy. It was a time I loved and would get incredibly excited about, and here I was getting that electrifying feeling in my tummy again. A feeling I hadn’t felt since before the word “cancer” was introduced into my life. It was awesome. I wasn’t thinking about chemo or nausea or being stuck in bed anymore… I was thinking about costumes for bald people.
