Robin Rivera, M.A.
Well, as for me, I know self-doubt and despair intimately. For decades, I believed I was born flawed. I was my own worst enemy. I suffered from poor coping habits, overwhelming emotions, anxiety, and bad relationships. I couldn't wake up from the nightmare so easily, but with diligent action and relentless seeking, I woke up! I realized it was NOT REAL.
The things I believed about myself, my potential, and the world around me were nothing more than false thoughts painting the canvas of my mind.
I found my power to re-create my life. The person I discovered I was amazed me every step of the way. I have been able to overcome incredibly complex trauma including sexual assault & exploitation. The journey has been rough, but consistency & support made it possible. I am now so proud of who I have become... I am living a life beyond what I ever imagined: radiant, heart on fire, comfortable in my skin, sense of freedom, abundance, joy, and strong intuitive muscles to deal with any shadows that may creep back up on me.
I want to support those who are brave enough to embark on this journey of self-actualization & healing. The potential is out there waiting to be grabbed by YOU.
I was raised in transformational work from the age of 15... & now have more than 18 years of experience doing the deep dive work with a brave and committed heart. I found facing the parts of myself I hated (addictive patterns, anxiety, overwhelming emotions, and unsuccessful relationships) lead me to my greatest joy! I found certain tools and practices that have the power to heal & transform. I discovered through diligent action how to excel at everything I put my mind to. This has been the true miracle of my life. I want to share it with you!
"I value integrity above all else.
Vulnerable & authentic is the only way I know how to be.
I don't have a fake bone in my body.
I believe in thinking outside the box, always.
I enjoy being woman and sexy and brilliant and justifiably rage-fully angry at times.
I believe in always coming back to love as quickly as possibly.
I believe humans need more touch & eye contact.
Freedom and healing comes from radical acceptance & compassion.
No one got a life manual.
Everyone is weird, just some of us are vocal about it.
I believe I have angels with me all the time, maybe I am one.
I am goofy beyond anything you have ever seen.
I delight in my children first thing in the morning.
My daughter saved my life.
I am a bit crazy, in all the good & amazing ways.
I still dance like a cross between a hippy and a stripper.
I am unashamed.
I value freedom more than approval.
Happiness more than being right.
Travel more than big houses.
I like deep spirituality mixed with some gnarly stories and a bit of cuss words because how else can you really explain it.
I love people and fear them all at once.
I have been mistaken as an extrovert.
Truth is, I am a sensitive Sally and need my alone time with a cup of tea & some weird parasite documentaries.
My children show me exactly who I am and who I am meant to be.
I was born to suffer for you, so I can understand you,love you, and help you."
