Emotional & Spiritual Healing for all

Types of Abuse

What is an Unbraided Life?

a life in which a woman is healthy, supported, and free to live out her purpose

If you’re ready to experience healing from abuse, Unbraided will help you get healthy emotionally and spiritually so you can cultivate the self-confidence and courage needed to follow through to freedom. Learn how to deal with the long-term effects of abuse—fear, shame, lack of trust, and anger—in order to build strong relationships, enjoy intimacy, and experience joy.

1-on-1 & Group Coaching

Through application of biblical principles, my 7 Steps Toward Healing framework, mentorship and discipleship, I gently guide you through a journey of self-reflection and healing—while making it feel like an intimate conversation with a trusted friend over coffee.

Are you ready to step forward into the life you desire with renewed energy, unshakable confidence, and purpose?

Workshops & Speaking

I help organizations, groups, and ministries encourage transformation in the lives of the women they serve through thought-provoking journaling exercises, biblical principles, and my one-of-a-kind 7 Steps Toward Healing framework.

Workshops and group healing programs are available to fit your needs.

Unbraided: Transform Your Pain to Power and Purpose

experience breakthrough and healing from abuse and
discover your purpose

“Karla is a truly transparent communicator who, with God’s help, has uncovered her true self and inspires others to find their authentic selves.
She speaks from a place of deep healing and it is palpable.”

Cydelia Miranda Storey

Latin American Bible Institute

“Karla eloquently and gently points you to the overlooked truth about trauma: to fully heal and be set free, we must courageously face our story and walk through it. Karla is the compassionate guide, holding your hand along the way, not asking you to do anything she hasn’t done herself. Karla is a tremendous guide for walking a daunting yet rewarding path to healing and freedom.”

Kelsey Hawk, MA, LMHC

Mending the Soul Facilitator

“Karla’s pathway towards healing through her relationship with God gives me hope for the young people we meet everyday who are suffering
and for whom we have no earthly answers.” 

Dr. Mariane Doyle

Journal of School Administration and Research Development

“Karla shows how our Heavenly Father lovingly embraces those who are hurting and brings each one into their own special place of healing. If you, or someone you know, has been a victim of sexual abuse, this book will give you the courage to say, ‘I can be free!’”

Dr. Simon Presland

Christian Counseling Institute

“Unbraided is not only for those who experienced sexual abuse as children but for anyone who wants to be victorious over a painful past. Karla will gently guide you to take courageous steps of faith towards God’s healing and lead you into a place of perfect peace.”
