I was searching for a spiritual community. I want to personally thank you because during our conversation you said to me transparently that you’ve had some pretty dark nights and nothing cut it like the name of Jesus. At that time I was having some pretty dark nights. The next week I rededicated my life to Christ and not only did my physical health improve, my mental health flipped a switch. The light came on. I feel whole again. No more dark nights, no more fear, no more searching. Thank you again!


My experience with Anne and Moksha Living, LLC was very valuable. I came to Anne with specific needs and areas of focus. Within a few weeks, Anne was able to help me identify a few key courses of action and ways to integrate our work in therapy into everyday life. She possessed a true understanding of my needs. I found the process worthwhile and will continue to use the newly learned techniques.

Michell has truly been an integral part of my journey and personal growth. She helped me realize that I have the power to make the choice to be happy, and has given me the tools to make important changes in my life and in my perspective. Friends and family have noticed the change in my optimistic approach to life, and my professional life and relationships have benefited from it as well. Michell is completely present when we talk and impressively remembers names and minor details I’ve shared from my past, still years later. I feel like she continues to evolve in her own techniques to help me feel empowered, so we both continually grow and improve together.


“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.”


I’ve met a few life coaches, but Sara is the one who helped me believe MY dreams are possible. She helped me find my own clarity, helped me create the path to my goals. She is full of patience, love, and support. She is an amazing human I am honored to know.”


“I went to Sara during a time of crazy upheaval in my life. I needed help, but not just therapy. I was a little wary — positive psychology? Was I gonna have to listen to how I should just smile through this and think happy thoughts? I’d tried that. If it had worked, I wouldn’t have needed help. Sara met me with great compassion and empathy, not puppies and rainbows. She acknowledged that the situation I was going through was incredibly difficult, and then gave me tools for how to work through it. Some of our sessions were super practical, and some of our sessions were deep and insightful. All of them were incredibly useful and helped me work through one of the most stressful and difficult times of my life. I had very little money to spend on the basic necessities of life, but I’m so glad I made the investment to go see Sara. If you’re looking for someone to help you connect to your strength and grace, she’s who you want in your corner.”

Happy client

“Best of the best. The gold standard in helping clients live the life they want to live!” “I had a great experience with Moksha and felt that the tools I learned really helped me push forward and find sustainable ways to cope with aspects of my life that I was struggling with.”   “Michell has been the best therapist I have ever had. She has had a very positive impact on my life.”

I started a new job about a month ago and I’ve been working from home ever since. i just wanted to reach out and say thank you thank you thank you thank you…all the work that you’ve helped me through has really been a blessing!! sometimes i catch myself approaching pessimism and then i remember how i’ve learned to walk myself back from it with Michell’s coaching.”
