“I cannot thank you enough for how much your program and Dr. Navaro helped me.  You all have made a way for healing for me so I can live a happier, healthier life with hope and love ahead of me. You all are angels sent from heaven to help those in pain find their way.”

As a mental health therapist and yoga instructor, I’ve worked with Brave Step and Brave Step clients for 2 years now.  I appreciate the services that Brave Step offers survivors; they find the most highly qualified providers practicing the most effective modalities for trauma and developmental trauma.  Brave Step is constantly expanding their offerings and accessibility for those seeking support.  Brave Step clients are invested in the work and the change I have seen has been absolutely amazing!

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.

– Survivor

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!
