Get to Know Curtis

Selecting a mental health provider is a very personal decision. Learn a bit more about Curtis and what to expect when you or a loved one receive care with us at Covenant Family Solutions. Our mission is to unleash your potential.

All people deal with varying levels of mental health but some face more intense circumstances. As a mental health medication prescriber, Curtis Long, DNP, PMHNP-BC, MBA is dedicated to providing support to these individuals to help them unleash their potential.

Your Voice Makes the Difference

There is no simple blood test when it comes to determining the best mental health medication for each individual. Each person’s situation and experience is unique. Your voice and ability to share your symptoms in a calm environment is critical.

A key part of the process for Curtis is to listen to your questions and concerns from the first moment you meet and continually throughout treatment. He promises to be that provider who listens and works with you — not the one who simply tells the client what they need.

It’s a Conversation

Curtis will be the first person to tell you that he is not the typical medical provider. For him, interactions with those he serves are not “appointments” or “assessments” but rather a conversation. He is a straight shooter and expects those in his care to be the same. The more open you can be in sharing how you are feeling and what is happening, the easier it will be to reach your goals.

Tomorrow can be a better day

Curtis believes in you and your ability to work towards goals. Just because you may have struggled in the past and perhaps begun to lose hope in things improving, does not mean that getting better is impossible.

In fact, one of Curtis’s most rewarding experiences and fondest memories as a healthcare provider was being a part of helping an individual who had struggled with depression for 20 years finally see improvements with the right medication. Before they met, this person had all but given up on getting better. Curtis is excited for you to reach stability and enjoy life to its fullest!

A Teacher of Many Arts

Outside of providing mental healthcare, Curtis has long been a teacher. He is a former teacher and lecturer with The University of Iowa College of Nursing as well as Kirkwood Community College. At present, he is also martial arts and self defense instructor.

If you are ready to come to your own defense and work to overcome mental health adversaries in your way, please reach out to schedule an appointment with Curtis at our Iowa City Clinic.
