It is hard to imagine someone who now has a Doctorate in Psychology, a flourishing counseling practice, experience in both TV and radio, to have hidden in a different state with her children, worn sunglasses on a rainy day to her child’s field trip, and often used turtlenecks to hide choke marks. Most people would not believe this could be the same person. Dr. Ramona is that person.
As a personal overcomer of a long-term abusive marriage, Dr. Ramona offers guidance and insight to others based on both her clinical expertise and her own experience of moving from victim to a survivor to overcomer.
Dr. Ramona has learned that healing well is the precursor to living free. The emotional scars can seem inconceivable to heal from. But the fact is, surviving an abusive relationship is no guarantee you will not experience another one. Simply changing your partner will never change your life. Changing yourself will. It is only by intentionally taking proven steps to heal well that we can eventually live free…Abuse free. As a woman of deep faith, Dr. Ramona believes we were created for freedom.
She has discovered that by sharing her story, she can educate and empower those who have been affected by an abusive relationship, as well as those who love them. Her genuine empathy and open transparency encourages others who have traversed this same painful path to believe that they too can find authentic healing and lasting freedom.
Dr. Ramona holds a Doctorate in Psychology and has conducted extensive research in the area of domestic violence. She is a Marriage and Family Therapist, a Certified Domestic Violence Counselor, and a Nationally Certified Counselor. She has been in private practice for over twenty years. Dr. Ramona is an expert and sought-after speaker on how to heal well from the trauma domestic abuse causes. She would love to speak to your church, women's group, non-profit, university or professional sports organization.
