Dr. Audrey Longson  

Dr. Audrey Longson

Holistic, specialized mental health treatment for all of life's challenges.

Let's face it, historically, the field of Psychiatry has not always enjoyed the best public image. Most of us have encountered Ken Kesey's classic story One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest or seen Angelina Jolie's award winning portrayal of a patient in the film Girl Interrupted. It's not hard to imagine that the idea of seeking mental health care can be very intimidating. Dr. Longson is sensitive to these concerns. Stigma, shame, misunderstanding, and fear prevent many people from getting the help they need. No one should suffer in silence and that is why Dr. Audrey Longson is dedicated to delivering high quality mental health care to her clients in a comfortable and confidential setting.

Training

Dr. Audrey Longson is board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Neurology & Psychiatry.

Dr. Longson's training background is unique and diverse. In addition to completing her residency training in general psychiatry, she completed one year of training in primary care at Brookhaven Memorial Hospital in Patchogue, NY and one year of training in physical medicine and rehabilitation at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, NY. This extra training afforded her the opportunity to work extensively with clients suffering from chronic pain, substance dependence, chronic physical and/or medical illness and disability, and more. In addition, she has had extensive training exposure to complementary and alternative medicine.

Dr. Longson completed her psychiatry residency training in 2012 at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis, Oregon where she maintained an active role serving as the resident liaison to the Oregon Psychiatric Association.

Experience

Dr. Longson has worked in every imaginable practice setting - quiet rural fishing and farming communities of New York and Oregon, bustling urban centers (NYC's upper east side, lower east side, and inner city Chicago), and the cozy suburbs of NYC, northern NJ, and Chicagoland. She has served patients from all walks of life - U.S. Veterans at the James J. Peter Veteran's Association Hospital in Bronx, NY, the Latin community of Elmhurst Queens in NY (sí, hablo pequeño español, pero estoy mejor preparado para servir a clientes que hablan pequeño inglés también), and people from every conceivable social and cultural background. A tireless world traveler, Dr. Longson celebrates the diversity of northern NJ/Metro NYC and maintains sensitivity towards each individual client's unique personal background.

In addition to her work for Total Wellness Psychiatry, Dr. Longson provides telepsychiatry services to healthcare facilities and patients around the nation. Dr. Longson also has experience providing mental health services to hospital systems within NY and NJ, and she has served as the medical director for nonprofit holistic counseling centers in NJ.

Education

A native Chicagoan, Dr. Longson graduated from medical school in 2007 from Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine (CCOM), Midwestern University. During medical school she kept busy serving as a CCOM Ambassador, a Medical Student Representative at the First Annual American Osteopathic Association Summit Meeting in Chicago, and as a lobbyist for medical reform in the IL capital of Springfield with the IL Osteopathic Medical Society.

Dr. Longson earned her Bachelor of Science degree in 2002 at the University of Illinois at Chicago graduating in the top 3% of her class (summa cum laude) and earning the prestigious College of Applied Health Sciences Academic Achievement Award for highest GPA of all graduates. Throughout her undergraduate training Dr. Longson maintained a position on the Dean's List and an active membership in the Honor's College where she served as a tutor in the sciences.
