THE BRAVE STEP APPROACH 

Trauma therapy is not one-size-fits-all. It is critical for Brave Step to help you map a realistic plan to address the life-impacting effects of sexual abuse. As a survivor-led organization, our secret to success is understanding firsthand what it’s like and creating a place, both online and in person, where individuals are safe, understood and supported. It’s also critical to identify an appropriate therapist based on his/her qualifications for assisting the courageous. 

 

WHO WE HELP:

  • Men and women impacted by sexual abuse 
  • Parents and immediate family members affected by abuse 
  • Spouses or close friends of the courageous 

Brave Step only serves adults 18 and older. However, we can recommend other sources of help for those under 18.

 

PROGRAM FEE:

You’ve made the first incredible step on your brave journey and cost is a concern. 

Brave Step offers its services free of charge. However, it does apply a “commitment fee” at the inception of services. This is a $50 refundable charge to ensure the courageous are invested in the process. If the curriculum that is outlined for you is completed within the agreed upon terms, the $50 will be refunded. If not, the $50 becomes a tax-deductible donation to Brave Step.  

If you have access to insurance, we’ll work closely with our team of therapists and your insurance provider to cover the costs and what can’t be, Brave Step will pick up the rest.
