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 twelve 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 depression and anxiety, eating issues/body image, divorce/separation/high conflict cases, parenting issues, reunification therapy, parent coordination, 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 house 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 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.'
I am a member with American Mental Health Association (AMHA), International Academy Collaborative Law (IACP), King County Collaborative Law (KCCL), North Sound Collaborative Law, Mediation Services, Supervised Network (SN), ACSM, USAH.
I enjoy my four children ages five through 14. I love to be outdoors, hiking, running, riding bikes, and playing with my children. I coach youth hockey, youth soccer, and running to all levels. I love taking our dog, Jackson, on fun runs. I enjoy a great mystery novel and a good comedy film. Life is full of surprises, ups and downs, and I believe we must keep dancing.

Meet Azra Grudic, MSW and her dog Sophie!
Azra joins LCES, PLLC with many years and skills to compliment our Therapy Services. Azra has a Master's Degree is Social Work. She has over ten years of experience working with children/adolescents families focusing on trauma informed care. She has the ability to connect with her clients and the deep understanding of trauma complexities.
Azra strongly believes in treating the whole person, and creating a safe place for clients to come and explore their deepest thoughts and feelings. Being able to create that space for someone, and not take away from their own personal experience during the session, which is one of the key components to enable a person to explore their own journey and decide which path they should take. Azra meets her client's where they are in the present moment. Azra's approach is client-centered, and she will apply a variety of techniques based on client needs and circumstances. In addition, she has her wonderful and intuitive, silly boxer, Sophie, "assist" with the healing process by either providing comfort with snuggles and kisses or bringing some lightness into the sessions with her cute personality quirks. She is very much liked by all, especially to help ease the tension or grief, and help individuals explore their inner emotions.
Azra also provides consulting services to youth ad families in a variety of settings including juvenile detention and probation, local law enforcement, and FBI cases, hospital settings, and emergency shelters. Azra is truly an amazing person!
During her off time, Azra enjoys walking her dog, and playing catch with Sophie. She loves yoga, and snuggling with her animals at home watching a good movie.
