LET ME HELP YOU HAVE A BETTER EMDR EXPERIENCE
Welcome to the Art and Science of EMDR! My name is Rotem Brayer and I am a certified EMDR therapist in Denver, Colorado. I am also an EMDR consultant in training.
But enough about me.
If you are looking into starting your own EMDR therapy, here you will find all the information you need to know about this treatment.
If you are a clinician – you will find resources and research that will help you improve your practice.
EMDR has transformed my work as a therapist. It changed the way I think about mental health, how I approach my clients’ challenges, and how I treat them.
Most importantly, after starting to use EMDR therapy in my practice, I noticed my clients were changing in ways I had never seen before. I started seeing results. Positive outcomes. I started seeing something I had rarely seen with traditional therapy – transformation.
With EMDR therapy, I have seen many of my clients heal from their symptoms. I don’t use the word healing as a metaphor. Healing is a complete elimination of symptoms, which is very different from a reduction of symptoms – the probable outcome of most forms of therapy (including medications).
The changes that happen in EMDR therapy are sometimes hard to grasp for clients and therapists. People want to know why EMDR works and how. I am here to ask these questions, answer them and to continue exploring the art and science of EMDR.

Since I started my career as a therapist, I’ve become interested in one question: what makes therapy work?
Why therapy helps some people get better while others remain the same? What are the factors that make psychotherapy more effective?
I know it’s more than one question, but it all goes back to what makes therapy work, or how I, as a therapist, can be more effective in helping my clients.
Over the past decade, I have researched how to become more effective as a therapist. I have used, developed and refined tools that make therapy help my clients achieve their goals. I’ve become obsessed with effectiveness. I believe that therapy should have concrete goals and concrete outcomes. I don’t believe in mediocre results since we all deserve to live life to the fullest.
After I was trained in EMDR, my mission has become to improve my skills as an EMDR therapist and share my knowledge with other practitioners. In addition to becoming a certified EMDR therapist and an EMDR consultant in training, I created The Art and Science of EMDR, as a platform in which I share EMDR related research, knowledge, and techniques, as I continue to learn about EMDR.
Here is a story about how EMDR changed changed one person’s life.
