Imagine your life with less stress from anxiety and depression. When issues related to family, relationships, work, academics, athletics, ADHD, money, social situations, children, negative or judgmental people, greif, uncertainty, and loneliness, becomes particularly dissatisfying or problematic people react to it with feelings of anxiety and depression. As a defense against those feelings, people develop maladaptive behaviors such as anger, withdrawal, avoidance, compulsions, or substance misuse. When these inappropriate defenses are used people's performance and overall satisfaction with their lives is affected. I help people learn to effectively deal with these problems and live happier and more fulfilling lives.
For over 25 years it has been my passion to help men and women become the person they want to be. My clients find me compassionate, accepting, understanding, and caring. I have a heart for working with men, especially, in all their areas of woundedness. Those wounds can be expressed in covert depression, relational problems,anxiety, perfectionism, feeling disconnected, and compulsive sexual behaviors. I also have an expertise in working with individuals whose personal faith in God is important to them. However, I respect and work well with those with no belief in God or beliefs different than mine.
I founded Uncommon Waters Counseling Services because in the journey of life we find ourselves veering off the path and into some uncommon waters. I will help you navigate through the storm and find your way to brighter days. I specialize in addiction, trauma, and grief. I am a graduate of Seton Hall University and a Doctoral Candidate at Liberty University. I have worked in addiction centers and various mental health facilities. I have attended and completed courses from top Psychologists in grief treatment. As a society we live in some difficult times, if you are questioning therapy please call for a free 15-minute consultation.
Finding the key towards leading a successful and fulfilling life is my commitment. With over 25 years of clinical experience, I am here to provide the tools and guidance necessary to help focus your life. My name is Ruth Mumford. I am a Master Level Clinical Social Worker, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Diplomate of Clinical Social Work (DCSW) with extensive training and expertise in psychotherapy. I am pleased to offer personalized, confidential treatment for adults, adolescents, couples and families. My office is warm, comfortable and private with easy access and free, plentiful parking.
Finding the right therapist can be challenging. I strive to make the process as easy as possible to help ease your mind. I have 4 years of experience in community mental health where I have worked with youth, adults, and families. I use my knowledge to help you navigate whatever it is that you are struggling with. I believe that change is hard and uncomfortable, but with support you can make hard changes.
I have over 20 years experience helping individuals and families learn how to make healthy changes in their lives with my ability to be an expert listener, precise diagnostician, compassionate speaker and supportive teacher. I believe most people can make really positive changes in their lives pretty quickly without spending years and years “in therapy”. I’ve learned the value and importance of meeting a client where they are in the process of change and fully respecting their choices and ideas. I do not judge anyone on their behaviors or beliefs. I am open, honest and direct with my clients.
Many clients would prefer a deeper understanding of the symptoms they or their child experiences. Underlying each condition are patterns of information which are particular to each person's brain, and are identifiable through neuropsychological evaluation and neuroimaging using qEEG. Understanding how your brain functions provides you with choices for treatment which otherwise may not exist. I believe that an evidence based approach to treatment which begins with a thorough evaluation is the first step in helping clients achieve a positive therapeutic outcome. Having dual training in clinical and neuropsychology, Dr. Tignor can provide a wide range of traditional and alternative treatment options. .
It can be confusing and challenging to find the right therapist from so many choices. My therapeutic approach is focused on your personal goals. Together we will work on an achievable plan that is suited to your individual needs and comfort level while being focused on your desired outcomes. Together we can sort out very strong feelings from current and past issues in personal and professional relationships. I also have experience counseling individuals who are having current and chronic health challenges. My clients have said I bring hope by helping talk through not only their feelings but the options in managing personal issues.
It has been my privilege helping people rapidly heal from trauma both past and present incorporating God's guidance with proven psychological techniques-i.e., EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems, and Imago Therapy. I like it when I hear someone say that they can never get over some hurt in their life and then be able, with God's help, to get them past it to a place of peace with what happen. In addition I work with ADHD ( adult & adolescent ), addictions, ACOA, couple counseling, marital problems, divorce recovery , anxiety, Depression, unresolved grief issues, interventions, PTSD, DID, panic attacks....
