VaKendall Long

LCSW

About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years of experience in the social work field. I have over 6 years of experience providing counseling and mental health services. I have extensive knowledge working with individuals who have experienced some type of trauma or mental health crisis; specifically, individuals who have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, behavioral issues, and anger issues. I enjoy working with a diverse clientele; I enjoy helping people in general navigate through life challenges.

My theoretical orientation in therapy is Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Solution Focused Therapy. My counseling style is very laid back; I launch from a strength perspective; always exploring the strengths of the individual.

I believe in work life balance. Some of my self-care activities include tennis, exercise, travel, prayer, music, and spending time with family & friends.

ValKendal is awesome. The very best therapist I have been to. I love him and would highly recommend him for anyone in need of true help and listening. He has helped me immensely. He remembers our previous conversations and builds on them each week. He suggests readings and videos to watch. Truly the very best. A gem.

VaKendall has been fantastic. He is personable and easy to talk to, and he listens intently to what I’m saying. He has a knack for asking great questions that make me think. He always responds to me promptly, and he checks in with me between sessions. I would highly recommend VaKendall!

VaKendall Long is a great listener, has helpful advices, successful at finding a root of problems. Even the fact that English is not my native language and that we have completely different time zones was not a problem for him. I feel like I took an important step in life by talking several times with him. Such a great counselor!

VaKendall has been awesome to work with! I was super nervous to start this process but he really helped me work through that so that we could have successful and effective sessions. He’s offered a variety of tools to use to combat anxiety and made me think of anxiety in a way that I hadn’t before. He’s an awesome counselor!

VaKendall is very patient as I sort through my thoughts answering his questions. He is very skilled in reframing thoughts and situations as well as questioning you in a way to help you think more deeply about a situation. A counseling session with him is like talking with a friend who won't judge you or tell any of your secrets. I highly recommend him.
