I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy.
The therapeutic relationship is a very special one. I possess a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work from Columbia University and have extensive clinical background in private practice, schools, in-patient and out-patient settings. However, it is my love of the work and the respect I hold for my clients that make the relationships a success. With all of the pain life's journey can bring, I try and provide a safe and warm environment for us to make progress. I have studied abroad as well in Ghana, West Africa and Costa Rica to gain more cultural perspectives.

I utilize multiple techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, and motivational interviewing, coupled with old-fashioned talking.
People contact me for many reasons. Often, though not always, the impetus seems to fall into one of two categories. Either something has happened to a person that has significantly changed their world, or nothing has happened and they are feeling stuck. Either scenario can leave someone feeling lost, confused, disconnected, and alone. Frequently I'm contacted after the loss of a loved one, including loss from suicide, or when someone is experiencing difficulty with life transitions (e.g., adjustment to college, career, change in family or caretaking role, or retirement). Other times, it's not that specific. It just helps to talk.

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.

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. .

We all have ways of coping that we have learned from an early age. These strategies often helped us to survive in our environment. At times, these ways of being stop working and create conflict and suffering in our lives. When this occurs, it is often helpful to seek out therapy. In our work together, my goal will be to help you build an awareness of and appreciation for all of the parts that make you who you are. It is from this place of insight that we can make meaningful and sustainable change.

People seek therapy because they struggle with depression, anxiety, relationships, work, or faith that is no longer working for them. Expectations of life and relationships are frequently determined by our experiences in our formative years. Therapy provides a place where our stories can be told and understood, and involves examining the past, along with expectations and hopes, so that we can come to see more clearly what changes are necessary to experience the future we desire. As we understand how our past has shaped us and begin to experience something new, we are freer to choose growth and health for ourselves.

Psychodynamic Therapists

Is psychodynamic therapy evidence-based?

Studies have found psychodynamic therapy to be effective in treating conditions like social anxiety, eating disorders, chronic pain, some personality disorders, and depression; indeed, some studies have found it to be just as effective as CBT or medication. What’s more, several studies have found that the benefits of psychodynamic therapy tend to endure—even grow—long after treatment has ended.

How long does psychodynamic therapy last?

Unlike CBT and other more structured forms of therapy, psychodynamic therapy tends to be open-ended and may not be limited to a set number of sessions. It is common for clients to be in therapy for a year or longer and to see their therapist one to three times a week, though the exact schedule and timeline may vary depending on a client’s challenges and progress. However, brief psychodynamic therapy is available, which tends to be more goal-oriented and typically unfolds over 16 to 30 sessions.

Does psychodynamic therapy work?

Research finds that psychodynamic therapy can help someone manage or reduce symptoms of diagnosable mental health conditions like depression or anxiety. The modality may also offer a range of benefits that are harder to measure but just as valuable—such as increased self-worth or healthier relationships. While no therapy type will work for everyone, research and anecdotal evidence suggest that psychodynamic therapy can be highly effective.

What are the limitations of psychodynamic therapy?

Some meta-analyses have concluded that there is little evidence to suggest that psychodynamic therapy can effectively treat certain mental health conditions such as PTSD, OCD, or psychosis, though it is sometimes used to do so. More broadly, the open-ended, free-association structure of psychodynamic therapy may be frustrating for clients who prefer a more structured, time-limited, or goal-oriented approach.
