Meet the Corazón Team

Our offerings come from a place of love and liberation knowing that healing only takes place when we address the whole person and their environment. We understand how current social systems negatively impact the wellbeing of our communities, especially mothers. We are committed to facilitate not only from a culturally centered and trauma informed place but utilize liberatory and decolonial frameworks that serve as the basis of all our services at Corazon Counseling.

Our expertise includes working with Pregnant and Postpartum Families, Black, Indigenous, People of Color, Spanish speaking Immigrant Families, Birth Workers, and Community Organizers.

EMILIA ORTEGA-JARA, LCSW, PMH-C

Founder & Clinical Director

My holistic approach to healing addresses the whole person mind, body, heart, and spirit. I offer a safe space to grieve, feel, and heal. My therapeutic work incorporates various traditional indigenous wisdom, and eastern wellness teachings along with evidence based psychotherapy techniques such as CBT and EMDR.

In addition, I bring a social justice framework into my healing practice addressing the historical trauma many have experienced due to the social, cultural, and political inequalities that to this day continue to negatively affect the mental and emotional wellness of families and communities.
