Dr. Bruce Rumsey

The people whom I serve want and need guidance from a compassionate and competent ear, and that is what I have offered for over 20 years. Countless men, women, and couples have found their way back to the life they wanted over and over again.

 

Clients come to me because of the breadth and depth of my experience successfully navigating a wide range of challenging issues.  Some people seek out my services to assist them with healing in some area of their life, while others seek me out to help prevent future aches and pains.

Here is the type of support and guidance my clients find in working with me:

I am compassionate, competent, and directional.

I have conducted 20+ years of breakthrough moments with thousands of individuals & couples. My expertise with individual issues, couples’ issues, high-conflict divorces, and organizational conflict resolution and team-building has allowed me to serve in some of the following roles:

  • Consultation and training for Foundations Counseling, LLC
  • Expert witness testimony in most of the Denver metropolitan area county courts.
  • Presenting to the annual adolescent mental health conference, judicial conference, and district attorney’s conferences.

 

I have specialized in intensive individual and couples counseling since 1993.  I founded Rumsey Consulting, LLC to provide consultation and executive coaching to small, mid, and large companies committed to creating healthy and successful workplace environments.  I created For The Kids, LLC to serve two-home families working toward healthy conflict resolution and communication. In addition, I have embarked upon a variety of entrepreneurial endeavors, including but not limited to, founding (2003), operating, and selling (2012) a professional counseling agency that presently serves over 1200 clients.

Directional

Over the course of my diverse clinical and academic career, I have created and integrated a 5-stage model of change, based upon the very best concepts of cognitive-behavioral  theory, exposure therapy, and systemic dynamics.  This model has provided needed direction to individuals and couples grappling with everything from anxiety to infidelity, and everything in between, including but not limited to addiction, depression, and communication challenges – and the outcomes speak for themselves.  

 

Countless men and women have found their way back to the life they wanted since 1993. The people whom I serve want and need guidance from a compassionate and competent ear on their road to healing.

Compassionate

I have lived long enough to know that life can let us all down.  People can disappoint us and we can disappoint ourselves.  This is not what we had in mind when we started out long ago.  We dreamed of so much more and now we find ourselves at war within ourselves – or with others.

 

How did this happen . . . .

 

The finish line may be closer than you think.  Let’s work through the heartbreaks and hopes and return you to your best life.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

  • Bruce is one of the very best, if not the best, trainer, teacher, mentor, professor in the stae of Colorado. His counseling skills are even better. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone who is looking for top-level service.

    C.B.
  • Dr. Bruce provided an opportunity to look at myself in the mirror and not find fault with myself. The amount of courage that I’ve learned about me has made me realize that I was not alone. I now have an opportunity to grow and move beyond that status quo. I highly recommend meeting with Dr. Bruce.

    D.V.
  • I have known Dr. Rumsey for over twenty years and I have referred family and freinds of mine to him to finde healing and hope over and over again. I cannot say enough about his skillful and thoughtful way of handling the most difficult issues individuals and couples face.

    Dr. Rumsey was instrumental in a huge life decision for me and has continued to support, coach, listen and mentor me through life. His transparency and humor make the ugliest of situations bearable.

    If you want honesty and integrity Dr. Rumsey is your man. He is worth every penny. Make the time and do this for you. You are worth it, your relationships and mental well being are worth it. I cannot say enough about him and his practice.

  • Dr. Bruce Rumsey has been a guiding light for not only my relationship, but in my professional career as well. His impeccable insight, process, demeanor, and experience is unparalleled to others … and it shows. I have found his honesty to be quite refreshing too. He’s super conveniently located for counseling in Littleton (in Old Town) which is great for me, and I would imagine easy for those who come from many different directions.

    TIPS: If you are looking to improve your relationship (or work to find that great one), Dr. Bruce Rumsey is for you. If you are looking to excel in your career or have challenges holding you back from being the best as an entrepreneur, Dr. Bruce Rumsey is for you. Good luck!

    K.S.
  • I would hands down recommend Dr. Rumsey and the For The Kids program!!! I honestly feel it would be better if the courts required For The Kids as soon as the divorce becomes non-amicable. I found FTK to be so helpful that I wish it was a proactive tool instead of a last resort.

  • Bruce Rumsey is one of the best counselor and trainer I have met. His knowledge and counseling skills are outstanding. I highly recommend his services.
