I am so grateful for the counseling!!  I can’t express what a difference it has made in my life. Burdens have been lifted.  Thank you so much for that!!

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!
