The healing process is different for everyone, which is why Sierra at Southlake offers an array of therapies and services to meet our clients’ diverse needs.
Therapies & Services Overview
Sierra at Southlake provides the highest-quality outpatient care for adults age 18 and older of all genders whose lives have been disrupted by mental health and substance use concerns.
The therapies and services offered at our Southlake, Texas, outpatient center are available at both the partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient levels.
We thoroughly assess each client’s medical history, past and present substance use, and the nature and severity of their symptoms. This allows us to custom-build a treatment plan that may include therapy such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
Our multidisciplinary team of experts works closely with each client to determine how best to approach their care, ensuring that they build a strong foundation for lasting recovery.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or EMDR, is a type of therapy used to treat posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and the effects of trauma.
EMDR involves briefly focusing on a memory of a traumatic event while experiencing bilateral stimulation, usually in the form of eye movements by following a clinician’s finger with your eyes. Then, like what typically occurs during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, the brain begins to process the painful memories, and a powerful shift occurs on a deep emotional level.
At Sierra at Southlake, we recognize that a history of trauma can affect how someone may respond to therapy. We carefully evaluate every client’s needs to determine whether EMDR is the right fit for them.
