Happy New Year from all of us here at Alimond Studio to all of you.

We are going to begin 2018 with our first special “Client Highlight.”  We are so grateful for the amazing people we get to work with throughout the year, so we wanted to give them the opportunity to share a few things about themselves.

We’d like to introduce you to our wonderful client, Nan Long

Tell us about yourself?: I am a sex, sex addiction, and relationship therapist in Reston. I moved to Northern Virginia from Kansas City, Missouri for a fresh start, and I love it here!

What did you do before your current career?: Before I was a therapist, I was a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist and helped people become tobacco free. Before that, I was a Registered Dental Hygienist.

And how do you feel you will use your talents to help create change?: I am lucky to be an expert in a field that is a small niche, which makes my services in high  demand. I am proud that I am successful in my work, and help clients to realize great change in themselves. I consider myself an honored sherpa in each person’s journey.

What’s the one thing that’s pretty interesting about you that not too many people know?: Hmmm, that’s tough, as I am pretty transparent. Maybe that I can only see out of one eye.

What’s one thing you think everyone should do at least once in their life?: Move a long distance with only a handful of possessions and start from scratch. What a powerful refresher to my life that was!

What are you looking forward to in the new few months?: After working at an agency for several years, I have recently opened my own private practice in Reston called RelationSkills. I am excited to be on my own, and help people realize change for themselves with my help. The best is yet to come!

If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?: I wish I had become a therapist earlier in my journey. It was my destiny, and the more people I  can help, the more fulfilled I become. It is my greatest gift.


If you had to describe yourself to someone based on your values, traits and personality, how would you do so?: People describe me as direct, warm, funny, and real. My laugh is frequent and genuine. I have a few years on me, but I am young at heart. I am empathetic and kind, but frank and clear. I value relationships above all else, and have also come to place a very high value on honesty and integrity.

How can others connect with you?:
