Karina completed Climb's Office Careers training.

“It allowed me to finally talk through past trauma, and Climb referred me to continue my therapy, something that has helped me find success in my personal life and at work.”

“I was born in Mexico City and moved to the U.S. with my family. I worked for many years at a local restaurant, but when my son was born, my 12-hour shifts meant that I never saw him. I cried every night when I came home because he didn’t want me to hold him. I didn’t think he loved me. Climb was my first time in counseling. It allowed me to finally talk through past trauma, and Climb referred me to continue my therapy, something that has helped me find success in my personal life and at work. Life is a lot better for us. My new schedule has me home with my son so much more. He’s happier—I can tell he’s glad that momma is with him. For me, Climb wasn’t just about the money, it was about that time with my son.”
