Spring Into Summer – Kids are Home For Summer Vacation!

For most parents, Summer equates to kids are home and what now?  Like most parents, they try to occupy their children’s time with camps, activities, outside adventures, hikes, walks, going on vacation, or to the beach. There are endless options when kids are home for summer vacation.  This is the opportunity to bring closeness to your family by adding a special day, or evening, and enjoying their company without TV, video games, You Tube, etc., and bond by doing an activity that is fun for everyone. Now, if you have teens, they will tell you ‘this is boring’, however, majority of the time once the teenager is on their adventure, they will enjoy it. This does not have to cost anything, and can be creative. Parents that work, share custody with the other parent, or see their child(ren) infrequently can all find ways to connect with their child(ren) by finding a common interest or trying something new.  Take this time to enjoy your child, regardless of age, and have fun adventures. It is not about the quantity of time, it is about the quality!  Look on Pinterest for great ideas!

Looking to get Mentally Tough?

Beginning a brand new series on mental sports coaching/mental toughness!  This is for athletes (youth and teens) that want to put their Mental Game on, and work on their mental fitness!  Mental Sports Coaching helps athletes face their fears, reduce their performance anxiety, make a comeback from an injury, fear of failure or success, and/or perfection!  This group will focus on achieving their goals, educating about mental fitness, visualization, and so much more. Remember 90% is mental!  This will be a group setting with break out groups. (**Only Ten Spots)!

Included in this series, there will be 3 workshops for parents of these athletes to help guide them through their athletic journey, and provide support!  These workshops will help parents understand the demands, and stress of youth athletes; and the last thing these athletes need is ‘the dreaded drive home.’

Rochelle Long is a Licensed Mental Health Therapist, Divorce Coach, and Child Specialist specializing in individual, couples, children and adolescent, and family therapy, and maintains a private practice in Everett, Washington. Rochelle Long also works with youth, young adult, and adult athletes and provides mental fitness training to help the athlete find their inner strength and help build (or re-build) their self-esteem, goals, etc. Rochelle Long also works with families in conjunction with the athlete due to the high stress and demands placed on athletes today. With over fourteen years experience as a Licensed therapist and child specialist, and as a graduate of Sage University, Albany, NY specializing in Clinical Psychology, I am currently serving as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are mental fitness training with athletes at all levels, depression and anxiety, eating issues/body image, divorce/separation/high conflict cases, parenting issues, co-parent counseling, children and adolescents, couples and family counseling. In addition to being a prominent family systems therapist, I also work with many high conflict cases and help many divorcing/separating couples resolve their differences without going to court. I believe we have the ability to work out differences when we can surpass our emotions and truly feel heard. I assist divorcing/separating couples deal with their emotional pain and help them work together collaboratively for what is best for their family. I help them get from "couple mode to parent mode." I also work as a Child Specialist and assist the children to have a "voice" about their parents divorce/separation. Additionally, I help families reconnect through "reunification" and "supervised visits" with the goal of reuniting children and families back together. I am also an interactive, solution-focused therapist, and cognitive behavioral therapist. This therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing. Additionally, I work with athletes at all levels, from beginners to competing levels. Rochelle Long has extensive experience working with athletes and mental fitness training to help the athlete find their inner strengths, goals, and experiences to produce better performance and outcome both in the sport, and personally. She works with parents and families as well to help them understand the pressures placed on athletes today, and ways to encourage them from the 'sidelines' and not be the 'other coach.' Rochelle Long works with coaches to help them find ways to understand the mental component in sports, and techniques that will better help their athletes. I am a member with American Mental Health Association (AMHA), International Academy Collaborative Law (IACP), AFCC (Association of family and conciliation courts). King County Collaborative Law (KCCL), North Sound Collaborative Law, Mediation Services, Supervised Network (SN), ACSM, USAH, and Peak Performance.
