Welcome to Brave Step

Brave Step strengthens adults impacted by sexual abuse by providing meaningful steps on their healing journey. We design personalized care plans and offer inspiration, education and connection for survivors and their loved ones.

Our Vision

Brave Step’s vision is to inspire individuals to take the brave step; educate the person, family and community on the effects of abuse; and provide personalized care that will help them live a life free from the constraints of abuse.

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.

Thank you for creating such a safe space to share and find continued healing. I am so glad to have found my people. I have been looking for you for years. Thank you!

My life has forever been changed by Brave Step and even though it was a short journey in person I believe that my journey with you is far from over.

Because of the therapy I have received, I have found my voice and know that I am not powerless. I am so glad that an organization like Brave Step exists and am beyond thankful for it.

I can’t tell you enough how grateful I am for Brave Step. For the first time ever, I have real hope of moving beyond this stuff, beyond just learning how to cope and pretend my way through most parts of my life. I can’t thank you enough for the part you are playing in my healing process. Thank you!
