Ryan Long, LICSW, EMDR-C, IMGCA-C, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Washington
I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults. As a former high school coach and counselor, I provide a unique approach that is both authentic and encouraging in nature. I work best with clients that are open-minded and adaptable as well as introspective and contemplative. Sense of humor plays an essential role in developing the rapport I have with my clients. Once that is established, I make sure to carefully listen to each individual's unique story, assist in planning ahead for challenges, channel strengths, and collaboratively track progress together.
I utilize a powerful brain-based therapy called EMDR, which has been empirically tested in the treatment of trauma, but also has been used extensively in the the treatment of non-traumatized individuals who are experiencing problems with anxiety, low mood, and relationship difficulties. Outcome research illustrates that clinical change can be profound and efficient.
I also specialize in working with athletes on improving their mental game in their specific sport. Specifically, I help clients develop positive self-talk and better management of emotions during the heat of competition, among other areas of sport psychology including focus, concentration, expectations, attitude, and mental discipline.
