Welcome to Chipita Counseling Services and the private practice of MaryAnn Longwell, LCSW. Your therapy will be centered around your needs and goals, and is strength-based, meaning that we will focus on what is already working in your life and go from there. I work with adults, children and teens, and families, and sessions can be in English or Spanish. I value diversity in all its forms, including ethnicity, socio-economic, spiritual, gender, and orientation.
I have been in practice in Salida since January 2010, and have been named "Best Mental Health Professional" by the Mountain Mail from 2013-2017.
My office is located in La Placita de Salida Commercial Center, has ample parking and is handicap accessible. There is a comfortable waiting room in the suite, lots of sunlight and plants, and a handicap accessible bathroom. It takes courage to address life issues and make changes in one's life. You are not alone; you can improve your life!
I now offer telehealth visits on a HIPAA-compliant online platform. I'm a certified telebehavioral health professional with advanced Level II training, completed in 2019, through the Telebehavioral Health institute.
