My Approach to Helping

Has your marriage or partnership been traumatized by infidelity? Are you or your partner struggling with pornography use, online sexually inappropriate relationships, repeated sexual indiscretions, sexting, use of prostitutes or secretive behavior so that your life and relationships feel completely out of control?

Welcome. I'm Nan Long, owner of RelationSkills counseling. I am an experienced therapist who works with individuals and couples in the areas of sexuality, sex addiction, and betrayal trauma induced by sexually compulsive behaviors of spouses or significant others.

I offer a fifteen minute telephone consultation at no charge so that you and I may determine together whether my skills and approach are well-suited to your situation. I am committed to providing the most compassionate, confidential and respectful therapy for people. You're welcome to contact me, and I will call you promptly; usually within a few hours, and always within twenty-four hours.

I initially trained at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota as a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist and helped people become tobacco-free. I continued my education at Avila University in Kansas City, Missouri, obtaining a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology. I obtained my Certified Sex Addiction Therapist certification while completing my residency at the Center for Relational Recovery in Leesburg, Virginia. I am certified in Brené Brown's Daring Way™ program, which focuses on the topics covered in Brené’s books, including courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy.

More Info About My Practice

My personality is direct, warm, and humorous. My professional relationships are completely confidential. RelationSkills is a warm, nurturing and safe place in which to learn how to make lasting changes and heal the relationships you value.

RelationSkills is located in the NoVA counseling center in Reston, Virginia, and is conveniently close to the Wiehle Washington DC Metro stop.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I'm particularly skilled in helping people with sexual issues and challenges. I am currently working toward my Board Certification as an AASECT SexTherapist. My Certified Sex Addition Therapist credentialing makes me proficient at helping individuals with compulsive sexual behavior in their recovery.

I am proud to have established my own criteria for creating the "Five Changes That Make the Difference" in sex addiction recovery. I am also trained by The Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists as a professional at addressing the profound betrayal trauma affecting partners of sex addicts. In addition, I have training in anxiety disorders and hospice care, making me a well-rounded and informed therapist who can support and assist you in making positive changes.
