Is there trauma or grief that's holding you back from moving forward?
Do you have a child that is stuck and looking for guidance from someone that they can identity with?
Or perhaps you have a mental block that is negatively impacting your sport performance?
Research indicates that the strongest predictor of success in psychotherapy is a good fit between client and therapist. My ability to relate to a diverse group of individuals parallels my treatment approach, which is always exploratory in nature. I do not have a preordained model that fits each person I see. Instead, each story becomes my guide in properly identifying and addressing the origin and function of the problem. With EMDR, symptom relief and personal change can take place much more rapidly and deeply than through conventional talk therapy.
WHAT SOME PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT RYAN LONG, LICSW:
"I worked closely with Mr. Long at my high school where he was a psychotherapist serving students with a wide range of needs. He was extremely professional and his collaborative approach during his time with us made him a great asset to our team and our students. We were very fortunate to have such a strong mental health partner in the building. For any adolescent seeking the services of a mental health professional, I would highly recommend that they see Ryan."
-Adam S. (Head of College Counseling)
“Ryan Long has very special sensibilities around the mental game. He is very attuned to what athletes, coaches and parents are thinking and feeling in their sport experience. He knows how to help them get the most out of their mental approach. Ryan has a fantastic athletic background which he uses to help parents, coaches and athletes improve their mental capabilities. He has a vast level of experience personally as an athlete, coach, consultant and trainer in baseball, basketball, rugby, football and numerous other sports. All this taken together shows me what great things Ryan ultimately can do in this field. I know he is already making a major impact on his client's mental games, and I know he could be a major force nationally in the mental game."
-Bill Cole (Radio and TV Personality)
"Ryan Long is a great leader, and runs a tough--and fun!--bootcamp on the grounds of the National Cathedral. Ryan has a strong background in psychology and counseling which is unusual in a trainer. As a result, he really understands how to motivate people. He also has a thorough understanding of the body and how to get results. Last but not least he is a thorough professional who is always on time and prepared. I can't recommend him enough!"
