Inness Quinn Stanley, DSW, LCSW

I value relational resilience and am a practitioner of somatic and psychodynamic therapies. I believe we already have what we need to heal within our body and this is a source of inspiration for hope. The courage to connect with your whole self, coherence of heart-mind-soul, is a way to face and understand the most difficult challenges. I am here to support you to be confident about living more fully with integrity to your values.
I incorporate creative ways to learn about your strengths and how to be more fully embodied and aware. I bring compassionate attention to your growth beyond the limiting patterns that no longer serve you or define you. I believe that while we are often hurt in relationships we also heal in relationships where we feel understood.
Being embodied includes understanding how the different sometimes conflicting parts of yourself are showing up. The impacts of trauma, loss, abuse, cumulative stress, and oppression can disconnect us from having any sense of wellbeing. Learning relevant practices like acceptance, compassion, and mindfulness can help us be more honest with emotions and vulnerability.

Evidenced-based and supported therapies I can offer:
●      Motivational Interviewing (MI)
●      Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)
●      Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM)
●      Relational-Cultural Therapy (RCT)
●      Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills
●      Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
●      Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP)
●      Accelerated Experimental Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)

Current trauma theory and somatic practices for resilience ground my approach to address the negative effects of cumulative stress and addiction, as a path to enhance health and wellbeing.

I am passionate about your transformative change and empowerment. Art, spirituality, and the more-than-human world are some resources that might come up in session. As a guide, I will draw on my ongoing learning and experience when collaborating with you to identify the best ways for us to work together.

The Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM) is the cornerstone of my somatic practice. I have also worked in community-based behavioral health services for more than ten years in psychiatric emergency, primary care, supportive housing, and acute outpatient settings. Because of the impacts trauma, loss, and cumulative stress have on humans, my practice has focused on strategies for multisensory learning of relevant cognitive-behavioral strategies including acceptance, emotion regulation, mindfulness, self-compassion, challenging beliefs, and imaginal revisiting. I also enjoy integrating these strategies with TRM.

My practice for the past ten years has been in community behavioral health services working both as a clinical supervisor and as a therapist with people impacted by carceral systems, experiencing homelessness, and living with physical and psychiatric disabilities. This has emphasized guiding people through harmful substance use and emotional distress or extreme states that often get diagnosed as disorders related to traumatic stress, personality, bipolar, psychosis, anxiety, and depression.

I enjoy being in water, walking on trails among trees, and reading about myth, folklore and herbal medicine. I am a person of mixed European ancestry with lineages to Irish and Greek peoples.
