Today, Lorena says she's a much different woman than the one we saw on TV. "Definitely time heals," she says. "I evolve as a woman. … It's wonderful to actually learn from your mistakes and to apply it into your life."
Thanks to therapy, Lorena says she was able to break the cycle of abuse and get to this place in her life. Talking about what happened is also therapeutic, she says. "They said once you start talking about things, you start healing."
In 2007, Lorena also launched Lorena's Red Wagon , an organization dedicated to the prevention of domestic violence. "It's wonderful to know that I help other women working in a shelter," she says.
