Hi. I'm Stacy Collins Johnson, MA, Certified Neurodiverse Family Coach and mother of two — one being a young adult on the autism spectrum. Raising an exceptional child is a challenge — and an amazing gift. The experience uncovered in me a strength, resilience and empathy that I never knew I had. In fact, because of this experience, and my keen interest in the differently-abled, I adjusted my profession so that I could help others navigate their journey successfully.

Embrace Neurodiversity

It's time we reduce the stigma around neurodiversity and special needs. A person is NOT a generalized diagnosis or label. All people are individuals with dreams and goals worth achieving. Everyone deserves to be seen, heard and valued. Trying to fit a square peg in a round hole isn't effective. Why not take a different approach? Why not create an approach to life that fits you?

Whole Family

I believe strongly in the importance of prioritizing the exceptional loved one – AND the whole family – because a 'whole' family is a healthier, happier one (whether in one household or two). I'll look at each family member’s dreams, desires, fears, anxieties to make adjustments and develop a system that works for everyone. Sadly, many neurodivergent families don't see the cracks forming because everyone is so busy treading water - simply trying to stay afloat. Before you know it, the family ship is sinking. Fortunately with appropriate coaching support, everyone can keep sailing!

I focus on four key phases of the neurodivergent journey:

  1. Diagnosis

  2. School Years.

  3. Transition to Adulthood. 

  4. Adulthood.

 

For the Neurodiverse Individual: Whether you are an ND child, adult or parent, there's only one YOU  – and you're a masterpiece! You are NOT a label. Like everyone on this planet, your needs are unique and valid.  I'll meet you where your are - and then we'll create a living plan that works for youThe number 1 priority is for you to feel loved, seen and heard as an individual. From that place of self-worth, life will improve. 

 

For the Neurodiverse Family: I'll partner with you to identify needs, goals, resources for parents, caregivers, children, neurodiverse family members, neurotypical family members, and the family as a whole.  I'll listen to each family member's feelings, fears, dreams and aspirations to chart their best,. personalized path forward. We'll also pull back the lens to look at your family: What makes you guys tick? Laugh? What makes your home a "home?" Let's create your best life. Your family deserve nothing less.
