Robin Rivera, M.A. Candidate


Thank you for your interest in my work. So here's the deal, I am an out-of-the-box kinda woman, and it took a ton of hard work & determination to pull myself out from the gates of hell. No joke. I know what it takes to find lasting transformation no matter what has happened in your life. 

Today I live a full, magical, soul-quenching life, that far succeeds my imagination, but for most of my childhood & young adulthood I struggled tremendously with "mental illness," addition, & the after math of developmental & complexed trauma. I was destined for a life of exploitation or death. I don't say those words lightly, but I do say them from a place of humility & awe. 

I was born a highly sensitive individual who was gravely misunderstood from birth.

Shame, abuse, & lack of safety pervaded my upbringing which made me the perfect victim to be taken advantage of & sexually exploited.

By the time I was 15 years old, I had been hospitalized, institutionalized, & I was caught up in the child welfare system. Everything bad that you wouldn't want to happen to your sweet daughter, well, it happened to me. 

Over. And over. And over again. 

Fast forward to the happy part, I was saved by the grace of God when I discovered I was pregnant & would be a single mother at the age of 23. That was it folks! I tapped into my feminine power because my child's life depending on it, & I wanted nothing more than to shield her from what I went through.

With the tenacity of a mama lion I have moved mountains, dimensions, & many worlds.

It hasn't been easy but it has been the most mind blowing adventure, ever-expanding to higher heights of exquisite beauty & awakening. 

I invite you, sister, to walk the path in the sunlight of the spirit with me!
