Professional statement

Ryan Ramsey works with adults who struggle to put themselves first. Clients seek Ryan’s help when they feel overwhelmed by guilt, anxiety, or worry about not being or doing enough, or when feelings of inadequacy get in the way of them connecting with others or reaching their potential.

Ryan’s work as a counselor starts with a foundation of empathy and respect. He combines a client-centered, conversational approach with expertise in cognitive-based therapies to help his clients achieve real changes in their lives.

Before he became a counselor, Ryan worked for fifteen years in finance, banking, technology, and international business so he understands the challenges professionals face in work and in life. He has earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the Metropolitan State University of Denver where he graduated with honors. He has also earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Northern Colorado. He has completed advanced training and has earned post-graduate certificates in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy from the Albert Ellis Institute in New York City. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado and New Jersey.


Message to clients

You have felt pressure your whole life.

Maybe it was pressure from your family: pressure to succeed, a parent’s expectations to live up to, a family culture where you never felt good enough, or pressure to be someone you were not.

Or maybe you have put pressure on yourself: to make others happy (often sacrificing your own happiness), to never let others down, to always excel and achieve, or to not take up too much space in the world.

You’re exhausted and you wish you could just turn off the noise in your head: the self-criticism, the worry, or the feelings of uncertainty.

You want to feel free to live life on your terms and to just be who you are without shame, anxiety, or guilt.

During our work together, I will support and encourage you to be more present with your emotions (you may cry but I think you may laugh at times also) to understand how you think, and to grow in awareness and acceptance of yourself. When you leave therapy, you will likely have a changed perspective, more self-acceptance and self-compassion, and better tools to handle whatever life throws at you.
