Bob Staun is the most amazing counselor ever. He has changed my life. He gave me the tools I needed to take control of my own life and happiness.
I feel peace…tired! It’s been years since I felt this peaceful and relaxed! I didn’t think it was possible to feel this good this fast. I feel relief….hopeful and happy….I’m happy and more alive. I took the PTSD 30 again today, just to see where I am. I am at 1.04, which is really remarkable, having started at 4.3…my husband has noticed a lot of change in me for the better. I’m happier and healthier than I’ve been in a long time. I came from out of state and it was well worth it! I wish everyone who needed it could get BIRRT. I have been able to put things into perspective; that was amazing to me.
After a very traumatic life event, I went to Bob and he's given me so many tools to work through the issues which were so hard to face. He is very patient, understanding, and is by far one of the best counselors I have ever been to. You don't have to go through life events alone. Bob will get you through them with tools to help you. The office is very calming and comfortable and the staff is wonderful and very friendly.
Absolutely the BEST!!! If you need help, don't hesitate to ask these people. Richard Morse, LMSW caught me in a "Freefall" and skillfully pulled me out of it... Many thanks, Richard, you are my hero!!!
My name is Ashlee Moran and my husband and I saw Richard for years. I cannot say enough how much he blessed our lives. He was understanding, kind, compassionate, and we learned so much from him. If ANYONE needs help with ANYTHING, Richard is your guy. I have never met a counselor like him and I will always appreciate everything he did for my husband and I.
I did the homework and it really helped. I’m doing better, much better. I’m more emotionally stable; no nightmares, I slept better, my anxiety is less. I feel much more in control. My anger is also reduced. I have responded in a surprisingly rational manner when I would have previously been quickly in a rage…I’m nice and calm and my mind is freed up. My wife has noticed that I’m not so easily angered. I’m totally amazed that a 2-hour session could do so much good. I don’t have to keep my hands occupied to keep out the bad memories. It’s nice to be able to sit and read now. My memory is better. It’s been 25 years since I’ve been this relaxed. It feels good. I feel like a 150-ton block has been lifted off of my shoulders.
Well, I'm a little bit biased. I'm an intern here, and I think this place is awesome! It was worth moving to Idaho Falls from two states away to learn from Bob and his team! I've been doing social work since 2008 and have worked for many agencies. I love the approach here. They're sensitive and put people before dollars. They use something called a miracle list, which helps you continually work on your best self, and makes it easy to see your improvement and track progress. Bob modified a therapeutic approach and created BIRRT (Brief Imagery Rescripting and Reprocessing therapy). I'm currently compiling the research to make this a renowned best practice for working with trauma and/or PTSD. It shows a huge promise, and from the comments of clients I've seen (Bob's done over 750 BIRRT sessions) they report feeling lighter, peace, anger/blame-free, a new connection with their higher power, and optimism moving forward! Most people report not knowing that they could feel so good. I think it's a great place to work, where they keep people first and foremost.
I echo the other comments about Bob. I have never been so someone as effective as him. He is seriously amazing. I highly recommend him.
Working with Bob has helped me so much. They are friendly and work around your schedule very easily. Great atmosphere. Friendly staff.
Well Spring Counseling is one of those places where you can genuinely feel at home. Bob Stahn is more of a listening friend and counseling mentor than an analyst and prescriber. Every time you go here you'll find yourself leaving a little lighter and a little more whole until one day you find what you were looking for: peace.
I feel good…lighter…a little bit more relaxed and peaceful. I feel a lot lighter…very relaxed…very responsible (in a good way) to help my younger sisters to understand their value. I’m excited about doing the next BIRRT! It’s been years since I’ve felt this peaceful!
Because of BIRRT, I have more self-assurance to fulfill my mission. I can see much better. I have more of a reason to serve than before. My anxiety level is decreased. I don’t feel pressure from the event anymore. The future is clearer and I’ve figured out more of what I want and who I want to be.
When I was considering divorce, I met with Bob. He is the best counselor! He is kind, compassionate, patient, and filled with knowledge. He doesn't just listen to your troubles. He empowers you with tools that help you to make choices and move forward. He never forced me into any decisions. He allowed me the space to make my own decisions and I will always be grateful for that. I lost my first husband several years ago and my children went to various counselors. We never found one we liked until Bob. My son trusts him! That's saying a lot.
Bob STAHN has been very helpful to me and my wife because he is a Veteran and understands the issues of a Veteran's family!
I worked with Rick to overcome some personal traumas. After every visit, I left feeling upbeat, valued, and heard. He was able to give me practical pieces of homework to work on between sessions and was always available via text or phone if I needed to work through something between sessions. He proved without a doubt that he was in my corner, had my back, and had my best interest at heart. I would highly recommend Rick to anyone! He is professional and compassionate. If I could give him more than five stars I would. He is absolutely amazing!!!
I've been coming to Well Spring Counseling for over a year and have been very happy with them. They are all very friendly and respectful.
Bob helps me to think about what is bothering me rather than telling me how to think. He helps guide me to my peace.
A friend recommended Bob Stahn for a counselor at a critical time in my life. I was unsure if counseling/therapy was right for me, but it was one of the best decisions I have made thus far. My counselor (Bob Stahn) was a great listener, very understanding, relatable, and recommended tools relevant to my situation. I highly recommend him and counseling for anyone in Idaho Falls struggling through life's difficult stages.
I've been going to counseling here with Richard for over a year. The tools and knowledge that I've learned from it have been life-changing for me. I have learned better ways to cope and manage the stress that life and relationships bring. I am very grateful to Richard for his help.
I feel good. I’m eager to do my homework. It’s a significantly lighter feeling, that’s for sure…relaxed and the fear is gone. Peace – oh yeah! Serenity. I feel very empowered. I’m hanging out marveling in the truth. I’m marveling that it’s like I’ve opened a door in my brain……I try to drum up memories to see if any have a change in them yet. Nothing has much power over me now. It’s so amazing! I’m at peace!
I feel more relaxed and able to communicate a tiny bit better with my kids. I felt relieved and relaxed. It’s like re-writing my own history. I was a bit skeptical at first but it’s a better benefit than I expected…..I’ve been excited to do the homework. It reminds me that people do care. I feel safer and less alone. I feel more stable and more confident in the decisions I make.
Rick Reboiro has not only saved my life but has changed it. I no longer feel that I am doomed to a disability, PTSD, uncontrolled moods, unhelpful/inaccurate thoughts, poverty, and shame. Rick, you are my hero and IMO, the sun in this fabulous agency.
Bob Stahn is the only therapist that was able to help me heal from my past. I tried numerous counselors and no lasting results! I'd highly recommend Bob or any other therapist at Well Spring Counseling!!
They literally saved our marriage! We are so grateful for such loving services. The environment is safe, so friendly and I would recommend everyone to go there.
I have had the most wonderful experience with Bob and his team I could never say enough about how much they have done for me and my family over the last 14 years. They have truly saved my life many times in more ways than one. I have always known that I've had the most and best support there is out there with Bob. I truly could never pay them back and what they've done for me. They are true angels on earth. I would recommend them to anyone!! Thank you so very much, Bob and staff! I love you guys!!
Best counseling experience I have ever had. I have made more progress in a few meetings with Bob than I had in years with other counselors. If you need to heal from the inside out this is your place!
This has been a wonderful place to recover and get out my difficulties and receive therapeutic recommendations on how to view and deal with life.
Bob got me through my divorce. I was able to find healing and forgiveness very quickly because of him. I'll be forever grateful and promote counseling as long as I live.
I've been to several different counseling centers over the years. At other places I've often felt like just a number. Just another client. Just one more story. There were never real connections between client and counselor. That has never been the case at Well Springs. I often have some pretty intense anxiety for a first consultation. As soon as I walked through the door I was warmly greeted, and offered some water. Just that small gesture made me feel a bit more at ease. I was looking for a counselor who could empathize with me, as well as gently push me to step out of my comfort zone of fear and anxiety. I found that with Rick. He's by far the best counselor I've ever had. He has the perfect touch of empathy and guidance. He truly listens to what his client says and what they don't say. He is excellent at reading (or listening) between the lines. He takes the time to not just listen, but feel what I feel. Rick also understands that counseling is a vulnerable experience, and does his best to make me feel comfortable despite the vulnerability. I always leave feeling validated and heard. I struck gold with such a kind, empathetic, professional counselor. Well Springs has done wonders for me. For anyone struggling to start counseling for the first time, or going back I highly recommend Well Springs. It is the perfect place to start your journey to wellness.
Amazing counselor - Bob Stahn has helped me in the most difficult struggle I've ever been through in life. With his caring attitude and much guidance and expertise, I'd never go to another counselor other than him. If I could give 10 stars I would. Here is a team that is so caring and always in your best interest!
Bob and his team are the very best. I have been in counseling my whole life, and I have never made much progress, e.g. in mastering my moods vs. letting them master me and my behavior. I was a train wreck when I met Rick about 14 months ago, and my life has been transformed!!! He is SO knowledgeable about a wide array of therapies, including leading-edge application of trauma treatment and neuroplasticity. Rick has so much compassion and generosity. He has a huge heart, and nothing gives him more pleasure than helping people become happy and healthy. I would highly recommend this agency without hesitation to anyone.
