Create more of the life you want Douglas Rugh, PhD

You want to make some changes, but you have learned from past efforts that it would be easier for you to have a little help. You might want deeper connections in your relationships, greater satisfaction from work, or more meaning in other parts of your life.

You can’t always create what you want on your own. With awareness, careful attention, energy, kindness, concern, experience, and training, I can help you uncover your true direction.

I bring over fifteen years of experience as a psychotherapist, plus I deeply relate to the pressure and responsibility of changing jobs, moving to new cities, and caring for family.

In our work together, we focus on unrecognized assumptions, and we make a distinction between what you think about and how you do that thinking. I am less concerned with looking for causes to explain what you do and more concerned with discovering patterns in the meanings you make by what you're doing.

Douglas Rugh, PhD
Think of therapy as distinctly human where care, confidence, and curiosity is emphasized and strengthened. It's a tool for creating the life you want rather than fixing what is broken. It's learning how to deal with your feelings and other important aspects of your inner world.

If this sounds like an approach that appeals to you, I encourage you to email or call to set up a time to meet. I look forward to hearing from you.

I’m a licensed psychotherapist, so my fees qualify for reimbursement under nearly all insurance plans, and my fees are considered “usual and customary”.

For most psychotherapy in DC, patients pay for services directly and get reimbursed from their health insurance.
