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 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.

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.

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 can be the body's way of telling us something. Our physical bodies do speak to us, in a sense. Usually anxiety is the body's way of telling us to stop pretending. Once again a full medical work up is needed to rule out any medical conditions but panic attacks, irritable bowel syndrome, fibramaelga, stomach ailments and a host of other illnesses can be directly related to unresolved emotional issues. Are you in a job, relationship, school, career path where your "heart" would chose not to be involved in but you now feel forced to finish or stay committed to? Relational delimnas will cause the body to say "You are not following your heart". Allow your heart to be exposed.

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 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 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.

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!
