I think everyone needs a therapist.
Having someone to talk to without feeling judged or like you are dumping on your friends is so
freeing. I have never been more in control of my emotions than i have been since I started
Having a safe space to talk about my emotions has made them seem less scary and more manageable. My meltdowns are fewer and easier to come out of.
Even my positive emotions are less overwhelming.
We can all benefit, autistic or not, from having an “Alison.”
Editor’s note: Alison is the name of a therapist who often works with nonspeaking clients. You can check out the article below by Trevor’s friend, Nick Barry, and introduced by their teacher at Reach Every Voice, Lisa Mihalich Quinn.
