Ep.48 - A Fresh Start with Karen Carrington

Karen Carrington is no stranger to challenges. 

In 2001, she moved from Ottawa, Canada to Toronto without employment opportunities; with nothing but her young son at her side and a few dollars saved in her bank account.  

Karen met this challenge head on and was able to secure a home, a job, and also met her husband as she carved out a new life for herself.  

On today’s The Adverse Effect, we talk to Karen about her diagnosis of general Anxiety Disorder and the breakdown of her marriage. 

We will also delve into her healing process and the time she spent reflecting in order to discover who she really was. 

Along with being the author of “A Fresh Start”, Karen is also a motivational speaker and host on a radio talk show.  

Listen in as she shares her inspirational journey. 

Being still in a time of healing is action. That is doing something. Being still is doing a lot more for you than ‘doing’.” — Karen Carrington
