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
As a survivor or the loved one of a survivor, you deserve to lead your best life, but quality trauma care can be expensive, difficult to find, and challenging to understand what services will garner the best outcomes. Brave Step makes the process easier and allows more survivors and their loved ones the opportunity to access care. A benefit of Brave Step’s program is personalized service, one that is designed to give you optimal results that are affordable and obtainable.
Many of Brave Step’s carefully vetted therapists accept insurance. Our team works diligently to find the right fit for care and one who accepts your insurance.
For those without insurance, Brave Step has a sliding scale that is tailored to your specific situation.
A $50 application fee also is required prior to starting services.
