Hello. Welcome. I’m Karen Corona. I’m a licensed therapist in the state of Oregon and California with an office in Portland, Oregon. More specifically, I help women in recovery heal trauma and develop a sense of emotional well-being.
If you are struggling in your sobriety & recovery due to childhood emotional abuse or neglect and family of origin dysfunction, then take heart as there is a solution. The struggle may be showing up as symptoms with bouts of anxiety and depression. Or, as survival skills, related to perfectionism, control, people-pleasing, hypercritical self-talk, or an identity-based in externals.
Often there are parts of yourself in conflict with each other and this creates a self-sabotaging pattern. In this way, unresolved trauma can feel like you are trapped in a ‘war zone’ in your mind and heart. It may be keeping you from moving forward in your life and taking steps towards your hopes and dreams.
The healing & recovery process has the potential to restore emotional well-being, develop inner freedom, and awaken to a newfound wholeness one never thought possible.
