About me

Ryan Ramsey MA, LPCC

When was the last time you really felt understood? I strive to create an environment where you can just be yourself. My therapeutic style is based on empathy and acceptance. You will absolutely be heard and understood here. I have also been trained in a type of cognitive therapy called Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) at the Albert Ellis Institute in New York City. REBT is a scientifically validated form of therapy that can help you transform your patterns of thinking. I believe that by increasing awareness of ourselves, we can develop healthier and more flexible patterns of thinking and can change those patterns that do not work and maybe never have. By integrating techniques from REBT into my work, I have helped many people feel less anxious or depressed, more confident, and more at ease in their lives. I believe I can help you, too.

Before I became a therapist, I worked in the corporate world for 15 years in positions in the banking and finance, software, and corporate real estate sectors so I understand what it means to have a highly demanding job and how that can impact mental health.

When I am not in my therapy office, you will likely find me playing blues riffs on my electric guitar, reading a good book, walking in a park, or attempting to cook.

Specialties

Perfectionism

You may have felt pressure to succeed your whole life. It may have been pressure from your family: a highly successful parent, a family legacy to live up to, or just a family culture where second-best was never enough. As a result, you may find yourself stuck in a cycle of always achieving but never feeling good enough, not liking yourself, and feeling a lack of joy, freedom, and ease in your life.

I help people who struggle with perfectionism learn to break free from old patterns and finally find true self-acceptance, freedom, and joy.

People Pleasers

You’re caring, conscientious, and considerate. People consider you a “nice person”. You strive to make other people happy and to make a good impression. You feel a sense of duty or obligation to others and often avoid conflict. Because you spend so much time taking care of others, you aren’t getting what you want in your life and feel resentment, a sense of loss, or even feel anxious or depressed. I help people like you – nice guys/girls and people-pleasers – gain confidence, become more assertive, and get what they want from life. We will work together to help you understand the patterns in your life and how to break out of them so you can start living life on your terms instead of everyone else’s.

Social Anxiety

Does the thought of meeting new people or attending social events make you anxious? Does what other people might think about you cause you to avoid socializing with coworkers or at school? Do you feel isolated in your life? You’re not alone. Many people suffer with social anxiety for years. But there is hope. I can help you get to the root of your social anxiety and learn to navigate and control your thoughts and emotions so you can start living the life you want.
