Truly a rare therapist

“Michell Stanley is a truly rare therapist.  I lucked into finding her when I went looking for someone willing to do “somatic therapy” with my highly intelligent but highly dysfunctional autistic son, and she was the only one willing.  From the first session, she has taken him seriously as someone not just with massive problems (autism, adhd, slow processing speed but high intelligence, extreme anxiety, and more) but as a creative soul worthy of respect.  She is genuinely interested in and respectful of his unique psyche, so she gets answers and insights from him that no one else can. Michell has contributed significantly to his growth this year, and to the development of his self-awareness and self-respect, though he is quite difficult to work with.  I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
