About

We here at Brave Acorn help people in the greater Portland area align body, mind, and emotions in their daily lives. We are trauma-trained, take a Health at Every Size approach to food and weight issues, and encourage people to work with their body and emotions as allies (rather than enemies) on their journey towards growth and healing. Kate, Katie, Bridget, Melina, and Sarah Alexander work with adults only, while Valentina sees ages 16 and up and Sarah Parnell and Emi see ages 6 and up. Valentina can do therapy in Russian. Please see the staff bios on our website for further information on clinician specialties.
Our greatest fears and tragedies can become sources of strength and wisdom. Short-term work focuses on stabilizing the current crisis and problem-solving. Longer-term work examines patterns that keep you stuck and explores options for growth. Learn to navigate old situations in new ways that align with your values and enhance self-esteem.
We help people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, and sizes develop strong roots for personal growth.
