Professional statement

Neeka Stanley is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker located in Lincoln, RI. Neeka works with individuals who feel stuck in their lives, whether that’s in their relationships, at work, or with the fulfillment they get from daily life. Neeka is passionate about helping those who suffer from anxiety, PTSD, and those who would like to gain a better understanding of themselves.

Neeka utilizes a variety of therapy techniques, including one called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). In EMDR sessions, Neeka guides her clients through difficult memories of adverse experiences. While asking gentle questions about the past trauma, Neeka helps clients heal the experience and find comfort in the present. Neeka also supports clients as they learn more about their core beliefs and the reasons behind why they think and act the way they do.

Neeka earned her Master’s degree in Social Work from SUNY Buffalo. She works with her clients to find empowerment and to make healthy changes in daily life. Neeka aims to help clients be their best selves and feel comfortable and happy with who they are.

Message to clients

I invite you to allow me to accompany you on your path to healing and wholeness. I believe that you are the expert in your own life and that together we can create an individualized approach that allows you to identify and heal the things holding you back and free up your energy for living your best life.

I am trained in EMDR and ego state work. We all have experiences that have shaped us, some are now our strengths and some are blocks. You have done what you needed to do to survive and get this far in life and I see great strength in that. I can help you heal the blocks that hold you back and build on the strengths to allow you to to thrive in life and live the life you want. I have helped people who have been struggling with relationships, work, depression, anxiety, trauma, low self esteem and dissociation. I hope that you can also experience more freedom and joy in your life through our work together.

I would be honored to share your journey. Please reach out today to begin this adventure! I am currently offering teletherapy which brings the healing power of therapy directly to you.
