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 is about the future! "What if I.....?" "And what if she.....?" Think of it as stage fright. "They wont like me." et cetera. You torture yourself with low level probabilities about furute negative consequences to your actions. It can be immobilizing and very self-limiting. I can teach you to devleop the skills of mindfullness in daily life. When you live more fully in this moment, you are less caught up in the possible failures of the next moment. This may sound easy but it is not. It requires weeks of concerted practice to break free of the habit of thinking about what might happen next. But when you do, you open yourself up to a more peaceful existence.

Anxiety Counselor

Registered Psychotherapist

In 80124 - Nearby to Dakota Ridge.

Stress is a part of all of our lives. How we react to stress and its impact is very personal. Stress can cause our bodies to release cortisol, adrenaline and hormones that may cause us to go into a fight, flight or freeze response. At times, we can "handle" the stress. Other times, stress that is not worked through or released can impact us emotionally and in our nervous system, physically. Some telling symptoms might include road rage, feel like biting someone's head off, feel a heavy weight on our chest or a fire ball in our gut, these are all symptoms of stress and anxiety. What a terrible way to go through your day. I can help you to relax and process how to make life more manageable.

Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate, Certified Addictions Counselor

In 80021 - Nearby to Dakota Ridge.

If you're looking for help with any form of anxiety, you're in the right place. I offer clients unique, evidence-based approaches for working with anxiety; approaches that address thought, emotion, AND physiology (including habitual nervous system conditioning). Anxiety treatment is counterintuitive. We recover when we learn to do the opposite of what we usually do in responding to anxiety. This aspect of newness, as well as the potential for relief in a relatively short period of time, is what makes this kind of therapy especially rewarding. To learn more about how we can work together to address anxiety in your life, contact me for a free in-person or phone consultation.

Do you feel a constant spinning in the back of your mind? Do you find it hard to fully let go and relax? Does one negative thought take you down a rabbit hole of "worst case scenarios?" - These are just a few of the many challenges of anxiety. The difference between coping with your anxiety on your own, and gaining the support of a counselor is huge! One of the biggest difference is that you are no longer alone with these self limiting patterns and thoughts. I will help to shift your relationship to your stress and anxiety so that you will no longer be victim to your anxiety but instead will have the skills and tools to handle and overcome it in a positive way!

Know that you can have control over your anxiety and stress.

Every day, think about the new opportunities you could be inviting into your life.

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.
