A Deeper Look at EMDR Therapy

Eye movement desensitization reprocessing is a technique that can help people recover from trauma and stressful events. It’s incredibly useful in treating trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). During sessions, a therapist will help a client release traumatic experiences and distressing life experiences using eye movements. It will trigger the client in brief sessions, or “bites,” as they recall traumatic events. Doing this through online therapy allows clients to alleviate emotional distress that they experienced before during the disturbing event. It works because single trauma victims are distracted by a therapist using their hands to guide the patient’s eyes in different directions. This method allows the patient to be exposed to traumatic memories without experiencing a strong reaction because they’re distracted by their vision being drawn in different directions. As a result, it lessens the impact that the trauma has on an individual.

Use EMDR to Treat:

1 in 5 adults suffers from a mental health condition. ​ The path to feeling better starts here.

Therapy is effective when two conditions are met: the clinician uses techniques based on research-supported protocols and the therapist ‘feels like a fit’–meaning a personality match that leads to a bond, or therapeutic relationship that itself becomes healing and transformative.  It’s hard to quantify the value of feeling heard, understood, challenged, and supported.​Research indicates that Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is effective for anxiety, social anxiety, depression, trauma, obsessive-compulsive disorders, phobias, and panic attacks.  To read more, click here.

Dr. Brandy Engler

Founder, Psychologist

Silver Lake Psychology is a woman-owned business with an all-woman leadership team, that has become a rapidly growing mental health network across four states. Psychologist and author, Dr. Brandy Engler is the Founder of Silver Lake Psychology. Following the success of her books, The Men on My Couch (BerkleyBooks) and The Women on My Couch, Dr. Engler began a group practice to meet the overwhelming demand. Dr. Engler had the vision for a company culture built on her relationship expertise to foster empathy, empower the client voice in their treatment and create inclusivity. New clients are greeted with a warm welcome, their stories are heard and their therapist hand-picked. In the early days, Dr. Engler would see clients in the evening and took calls from prospective clients during the day. Because she was engaged in deep listening to the community; what people wanted from therapy and what barriers they experienced to accessing mental health care, she created a company that puts client needs first. Silver Lake Psychology is now affiliated with hospitals and universities, offers 120 different therapy specialties and therapy in 17 different languages.
