If there’s one thing a global pandemic has taught us, it’s that our mental health is just as important as our physical health.
As the world went into lock down, the affects of isolation, stress and the mental load of working from home brought many people to their knees. Never before have flexible therapy and counseling options been so important to the greater success of the local and global communities.
But therapists and mental health specialists like Jordan Long, of Tailored Therapy Solutions, could argue that prioritizing mental health as health was long overdue before COVID showed up.
“As things return to normal post-pandemic, I think continuing to prioritize mental health is crucial to the recovery and betterment of society, COVID really showed us where society’s weak spots were and mental health is one of them,” Long says. “I really enjoy being able to provide people a safe place to open up about things that they might not be comfortable discussing with their family and friends.”
Long received a Bachelor of Arts in Society, Ethics, and Human Behavior in 2017 and a Master of Social Work (Specializing in Mental Health) in 2019 from the University of Washington. She specializes in working with service members, first responders and their families, with expertise in treating anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and suicidal ideations.
Long’s personal experience serving in the United States Marine Corps (2009-2013) and being deployed to Afghanistan, along with her many family and close friends who are service members and first responders, greatly contributed to her special interest in providing support to these communities as a therapist.
“In my experience, veterans and active service members can often experience significant challenges when it comes to addressing their mental health struggles. Breaking down those barriers and helping normalize mental health challenges is very important to me. I feel very honored to support these communities as a therapist,” she says.
Long started her exclusively online private practice, Tailored Therapy Solutions in July and collaborates with her clients to determine the most effective evidence-based therapies and skill-building strategies to help them reach their goals and live happier, healthier lives.
She is currently accepting new clients and appointments are easily made online through her website. Find more information here and book your complimentary 30-minute consultation today.
