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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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 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.
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!
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!!!
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 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 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!!!
Working with Bob has helped me so much. They are friendly and work around your schedule very easily. Great atmosphere. Friendly staff.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 went into my BIRRT appointment a bit skeptically. I have tried several treatments for my PTSD with no improvement and I was willing to try just about anything to start feeling better. I was not healthy and struggled with anxiety and occasional insomnia, and overwhelming fatigue. I felt better almost immediately after I finished my session and the feeling has continued for months! I can fall asleep and stay asleep at night, I don’t have flashbacks, my anxiety has improved and I just feel better overall. I would 100% recommend Well Spring Counseling and their BIRRT method to anyone struggling.
