Anxiety and stress are all too common in our world. Pressures exerted on us in our jobs and in our relationships can feel overwhelming and lead us to feel anxious and even paralyzed by fear. Anxiety can be so powerful as to lead us to be afraid of even being afraid. I call it "anxiety squared." Therapy is a process in which we can begin to feel secure and form a basis on which to safely investigate the source or sources of our fears and ways to reduce and sometimes eliminate their effects. In practice, we often apply some behavioral and cognitive techniques to first gain control of the fear-induced reactions. Then, we try to get at the sources through deeper probing and analysis.

Tired of being stressed out? YES! Anxiety is primarily a byproduct of a very natural process the mind goes through after being caught off guard. The mind defaults to patterned thinking designed to protect you from further harm, pain, disappointment, rejection, etc., but the protective process can raise anxiety to an unhealthy level. How do you know when your stress is to high? How do you know when your anxiety is above the norm? Dr. Bruce Rumsey has been able to help many clients suffering from stress, regulate their emotions, including their anxiety, to a level that allowed them to resume their normal lives, decision-making, and sense of well-being throughout the Denver area.

Anxiety and stress can create havoc in an individual's life and the life of their family. My approach to anxiety and stress management includes therapeutic work towards optimizing your interpersonal awareness and then learning coping skills when you feel stress. An assessment of life stressors is also very helpful when working towards eliminating these unpleasant feelings. Learning relational boundaries and creating structure in your life can also be a powerful tool to end your anxiety.

Anxiety can interfere with your relationships, sleeping patterns, eating habits, work, school, and routine activities, and it is one of the most common reasons people seek therapy. The self-reflective process of therapy helps people understand, unravel, and transform anxiety and learn self-soothing techniques to use if anxiety flares up again. You're able to resume regular activities and regain a sense of control. In my practice, I collaborate with you on a treatment plan, which may include other therapy treatments and lifestyle adjustments to help relieve anxiety, such as stress-management and relaxation techniques, self-care, exercise, and reducing caffeine intake.

Important relationships that are not working well can reek havoc in all aspects of our lives. We can feel anxiety and stress at work, at home and with friends. Understanding where you are getting stuck, identify patterns of relating that are not working well for you, and help you create change that positively impacts how you relate to others will help reduce anxiety and stress. If you are experiencing the end of a significant relationship, having support to grieve and heal is important. If children are involved the anxiety and stress of a family break up is painful and difficult. I can help you navigate these difficulties that limits the negative impact and brings hope and healing.

I use talk therapy, CBT, and EMDR to approach the treatment process for clients suffering from anxiety and stress. With anxiety, EMDR can prove to be key because it allows the brain to search the root causes of a person's anxiety and find healing at a base level. This is much more affective than simply treating symptoms of anxiety. Once the root cause is discovered, relief will naturally occur. However, it is also important to address the present symptoms and help clients make changes in their lives to alleviate anxiety and develop healthy coping skills.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

If you suffer from panic attacks, unrelenting worries or an incapacitating phobia you may have an anxiety disorder. But you don't have to live with anxiety and fear. I provide certain types of therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and exposure therapy which will control your anxiety levels, and conquer your fears. When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is the most effective option. That's because anxiety therapy--unlike anxiety medication--treats more than just the symptoms of the problem. You can uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears; develop coping and problem solving skills; and look at situations in new less frightening ways.

Anxiety that interferes with your daily activities? How about a proven program that works within 6-10 sessions? In addition to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy we also offer Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) a safe, FDA approved, non-drug approach to treat depression, anxiety, and insomnia. Its tiny “microcurrents” are thought to stimulate the areas of the brain responsible for neurotransmitter and hormone production. Clinical tests back this up. Increases in cerebrospinal fluid level beta-endorphins up to 219%, plasma beta-endorphins up to 98%, and cerebrospinal fluid serotonin up to 200% have been demonstrated in normal volunteers receiving just 20 minutes of CES treatment

Anxiety can be something that consumes you. However, it doesn't have to be something you survive with day in and day out. The anxiety may feel overbearing, or you may feel you need to control whatever is causing this stress. Many times, allowing space to recognize the root of the cause can be very helpful. With an encouraging, supportive therapeutic relationship, we will look at what is causing your physical, mental, and emotional reaction, as you learn relaxation techniques and grounding exercises to help manage and relieve your anxiety. I will teach you simple ways to decrease negative thoughts and help you find the root of your anxiety, so you can feel better.
