My Approach to Helping

Hello! I'm Cecily Longo, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Santa Barbara, CA, and work with clients statewide in California. For decades of my career, I worked in the County Mental Health system, including correctional facilities and inpatient psychiatric facilitates. I also have experience in IOP programs for substance use, eating disorders, and mental health stabilization. In the last 3-5 years I have focused more on the private practice setting. I work with adults ages 18 and up and specialize in anxiety, depression, PTSD, and Bipolar disorder. I work with many clients who seek to improve coping skills, navigate life transitions, manage emotions, and improve communication.

I implement a variety of modalities to meet my clients' needs. I aim to help you develop insight to create the change you need, but also provide extensive coaching and education in order to fill your "emotional coping skills toolbox." These approaches include Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique Acupressure Tapping, and Psychodynamic Therapy, I am also a certified Tarotpy Practitioner. CBT and DBT are widely used, evidence-based, and common treatment modalities that assist you in developing concrete coping skills to manage anxiety, depression, and PTSD. The emotional Freedom Technique is an excellent and evidence-based tool that many find more accessible than meditation, It can have profound results in reducing anxiety, improving mood, and reducing the "fight/flight" sympathetic nervous system while activating your parasympathetic "relaxation response. In April of 2023, I completed a 16 CEU course to become a Certified Tarotpy Practitioner. Clients enjoy this method of therapy, as this is a more depth psychology approach that implements storytelling, imagery, and metaphor, and can often help clients become "unstuck." during therapy. This fun and fascinating approach often reveals issues the unconscious is "holding onto," allowing for quicker breakthroughs and transformations to unfold.
