In 2015, Rhonda ventured to start her own healing practice: Lion Heart Life Healing- with the goal of providing holistic and culturally competent healing to people of African Descent.

Her work is predominantly with women of African Descent though she has served many others. Throughout her career, she has helped countless individuals bring positive transformation in their lives through her professional guidance. Going through her own healing journey, Rhonda has learned what it means to overcome one’s own internal battles and she uses this to encourage and empower her clients.
As a Life Healing Specialist, Rhonda incorporates a wealth of knowledge as well as life experience to provide her clients with the most effective method of transforming their lives.
