What Therapists Say About Consultation

I first met Jan Schaad in my weekend two EMDR training in Phx., AZ. I have since received several hours of helpful consultation from her. Jan has a soft, yet in-depth approach to her consultation that always leaves me with new ideas. I really appreciate her insights as they foster new ideas in me. I find working with Jan energizing.  I fully recommend Jan Schaad to anyone seeking to sharpen or build on their approach in EMDR.

Andrew E. Henry, MA, LPC P.L.L.C.

Jan helped me understand the importance of preparation and gauging where the client is. She etched many important points into my mind that I get to pass on to my clients. For example during one of our consultations, she said, “It’s not about getting over it—it’s about knowing it’s over.” These are some of the most powerful words I am able to relay to my clients. Jan has helped me understand the many approaches and challenges when working with clients diagnosed with PTSD, social anxiety and personality disorders to name a few.

Patricia Swan-Smith, MA, LCPC

Jan Schaad is skillful in articulating EMDR protocols as well as assessing the needs of those she’s consulting. She brings to the consultation sessions years of experience and a strong knowledge base in working with clients as well as in training EMDR. Jan has provided invaluable training that has helped my effectiveness in meeting the needs of the clients I see. I am most appreciative for her guidance and training. I am so glad I did not pass up the opportunity to train with her!
