Karla Monterrosa shows you how to heal from abuse and live a healthy, joyful life.
Karla Monterrosa experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuses early in her life. She was able to take those negative experiences and use them as fuel to propel her forward for a time, accomplishing personal, educational, and professional successes. Eventually, within the stresses and pressures of marriage and motherhood, her scars became utterly exposed. She realized that her past was beginning to harm her family in the present, and it was then she chose to take courageous steps to heal from abuse—to become the woman, wife, and mother they deserve.
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.

Why I Wrote The Book
I’M ON A MISSION TO HELP WOMEN HEAL FROM ABUSE AND LIVE HEALTHY, THRIVING LIVES.
Childhood abuse has profound and long-lasting effects that manifest themselves in subtle and devastating ways in our lives. Unless we know it, they remain a part of us, wreaking havoc. Once we are aware, we can begin to take steps to change this.
Healing and breaking the cycle of abuse is possible, and it begins with you. I want to lead you toward the path of healing and give you essential tools to make healing a reality in your life.
When a woman is healthy emotionally and spiritually, she is stronger, more creative, and genuinely influential within her family and community. She becomes an agent of change in the lives of others.
As you dive into the book, you may feel overwhelmed by your emotions at times.
If you are finding it difficult to get through your reactions alone, seek help. A friend, counselor, pastor, or mentor can be a great partner and shoulder for you to lean on as you move through your healing journey. Here are some resources you can turn to for support.
