Counseling Approaches

Dr. Jen Staat

Different people require different approaches.

People seek counseling for different reasons, from getting to the bottom of deep subconscious issues to just needing someone to talk to. Different approaches work best for specific problems. The primary approaches I use are described below.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy >>

Psychodynamic Therapy >>

EMDR(Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) >>

Emotionally Focused Couple's Therapy >>

Brainspotting >>

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy >>

"This being human is a guest house,
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
Some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all.
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows
who violently sweep you house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
For some new delight..

The dark thought, the shame, the malice
Meet them at the door laughing,
And invite them in

Be grateful for whoever comes
Because each has been sent
As a guide from beyond."
