Announcement icon We are conducting sessions via video (Doxy or Clocktree Zoom) during the COVID19 pandemic.
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. Bridget, Julio, Melina, and Sarah work with adults only, while Valentina and Kelly work with ages 14 and up. Valentina can do therapy in Russian and Julio can do therapy in Spanish.
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.
