Romona’s early career started at Sanctuary for Families, a large NYC based non-profit agency that provides counseling, case management, and legal aid to survivors of domestic violence. She guided adults, adolescents, and children through processing the trauma and grief of living in such volatile and oppressive circumstances.
She spent time providing clinical consulting for an organization called Kolkata Sanved in West Bengal, India. Kolkata Sanved utilizes dance movement therapy as the primary treatment modality to provide support and empowerment to survivors of trafficking.
She has worked in mental health clinics in Manhattan and the Bronx as therapist to individuals from numerous cultural backgrounds, suffering from varying degrees of severity in mood disorders, adhd, grief and trauma, relationship conflicts, substance abuse, and body image issues.
The dynamic pool of international, clinical, non-profit, and wellness settings shaped her into an ease-ful, open-minded, more importantly, open-hearted guide to anyone in the process of self-discovery.
