I am a Marriage & Family Therapist and I am a Christian Counselor. I work with individual clients in Hawaii through texting and messaging only (no video or phone). I also work on a very limited availability (Mondays only). This is ideal if you are wanting short term support to work through some specific problem, or learn more about managing your mental health.
I operate with the philosophy that therapy does not have to involve time consuming practices of deep analysis or delving into the past. It does not have to be figuring out what is "wrong" or tear filled sessions. I see therapy as a place for healing that is not confined to diagnostic labels or dwelling in the past. Instead, healing happens through exploring solutions, experiencing the present, experimenting with new approaches to fully experience who you are so that you can relate to yourself and others in more satisfying and genuine ways.
I am excited to help clients discover their strengths. My favorite experience is being with clients as they discover for themselves that even the smallest changes can make significant positive differences in their lives. AND it doesn't stop there...the effect radiates into all areas of life and relationships.
Most of all, my desire is that every session is meaningful. Clients are often surprised to experience noticeable changes during their first sessions in therapy.

Ramona gets me to think about things in ways I didn’t think about before and allows me to find answers to my own questions and understanding for why I feel a certain way. She also provides the right amount of homework or worksheets for references and for you to participate with and she’ll review your responses and journal entries with you. She’s also good t reeling you back in when you start to spiral or wander off path or off tangent.

Ramona has been a wonderful therapist to me since i got matched. She is kind, patient and knowledgeable in all the topics we have discussed. She also challenges me very much as we go through each step of the way in healing. I am very grateful for the time and sessions.

Ramona Taylor is very insightful and astonished me in her ability to pinpoint accurate reasoning behind what causes adulthood reactions and emotions. I learned things about myself that have given me clarity on the need for self care, understanding why my emotions arise in certain circumstances, and understanding where my subconscious fears lead me. If you really want to learn about what has happened in your past that causes you to feel what you feel today and why you react the way that you do, I highly recommend Ramona Taylor. You will not regret it.

She is a great therapist, she listens, cares, and is really there for you. She doesn’t tell you just what you want to here. She really wants to help you.
