Joella Long founded Cascadia Family Therapy in Bend Oregon in 2015 with the dream of offering a vital resource to the community she fell in love with on a family vacation in 1992.
Central Oregon’s beautiful landscape draws people from all over the world and though we may all brag that “your vacation is my life” it doesn’t exclude us from the social, emotional and psychological struggles human beings face. Joella is passionate about gathering themes and data in her and her clinicians work to continually improve at serving the community.
Cascadia Family Therapy’s mission is to provide culturally informed systemic mental health care with the heart of a teacher empowering our clients and clinicians with the skills and tools to live their best lives.There isn’t time in session for long winded complaints or arguments between you and your family members. We are focused on pinpointing and highlighting the exact interactional pattern or patterns that may be leading to symptoms like depression, anxiety or general relationship struggles.
We believe that systemic racism, culture, socioeconomic status, language, trauma, the environment you live in and were raised in, all play important roles in mental health. We believe seeing the whole you provides space for healing.
All of our clinicians participate in continued education to ensure you receive the best treatment possible.
