Hello and welcome to the next chapter of your life!
My name is Corazón Burke, but I go by Cora. Yes, my name is the Spanish word for heart, so one could say that helping people is my calling. I'm known for my compassion for others. I graduated with my Master's degree in Psychology with an emphasis on mental health counseling from the University of West Florida in 2012. I began providing telephone crisis counseling in 2009, and since then I've worked in many different settings with individuals of all ages, with a variety of mental health struggles, including addiction, stress, depression and anxiety, grief, and trauma. I have received additional training in treating trauma and addiction, and come from a trauma-informed, person centered background. I am a sex positive therapist, LGBTQIA+ friendly, and I proudly support Health at Every Size. I firmly believe in creating a safe, inclusive, and respectful space for every person. My pronouns are they/them, but I am not offended if you refer to me as she/her.
Life can certainly be overwhelming at times, and my goal is to help guide you in overcoming the challenges that you have experienced. I firmly believe that there is hope for growth for every person. I will work with you to develop your strengths and find effective, healthy solutions for managing your problems. Every person needs someone who will listen to them, and consider them with unconditional, positive regard. Every person can benefit from having someone without bias to support them in managing the stressors that they are facing.
When you begin your work with me, I will ask you to complete a psychosocial interview, and treatment plan, prior to beginning the bulk of our work together.
As far as my style for counseling, I really am an eclectic kind of counselor. I draw from many different theoretical orientations and what's called evidenced based practices. I try not to be too formal and wordy. I am formally trained in EMDR, Real Life Heroes, PCIT, and TF-CBT and also draw from my knowledge of brief solution focused therapy, CBT, ACT, and others. I will do my best to respond to your messages within 24 hours (usually daily), and reply to messages in my very early morning and evening hours. I do attach worksheets here and there, especially if they are really pertinent to what we are discussing.
I am glad that you are here and I am looking forward to working with you.

I am appreciating my counseling with Cora and do appreciate how timely she is with her responses. She has been very supportive and is helping me learn ways to deal with my issues. I feel comfortable messaging with her, and feel it is very private. I have already recommended Better Help to a friend :)
Cora has a way of asking the exact questions needed to provoke deep thought. I couldn't be happier with her counsel.
So far my experience with corazon has been great, she has given me a plan to work towards and I feel like I'm going to achieve my goals I set myself on my counselling journey . I'm looking forward to working more with Cora and I feel like she understands what I'm trying to achieve .
I've only had 2 sessions with Cora and already I've benefitted massively! Definitely recommend Cora and BetterHelp!
i've only spent a small amount of time with Cora as of now - but through every step of the process, she has been incredibly helpful, attentive and focused, and everything else i was hoping for
I feel lucky to have Cora as my counselor in just a few message she got to the heart of the matter and helped me figure out a few things. I did not expect therapy by messaging to work so quickly to be honest so Yay !
We have set goals and she offered worksheets and reading material that is extremely relevant.
I would recommend her to everyone who feels stuck and in need of support !
Corazon was very kind and gave me the prompts to sort through my own thoughts. Very helpful.
She is wonderful! Always is concerned about how I feel! I give her a 100/10
Cora is fantastic.
She is compassionate and more than often goes out of her way to acknowledge my concerns. She radiates warmth and safety. She is someone I would recommend to people who have a hard time trusting others. She offers so many resources and information related to my concerns and day to day struggles. 10\10 would recommend.
