EMDR Therapy for Stress, Anxiety or PTSD in San Clemente, CA


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprecessing (EMDR) is a powerful psychotherapy approach that has been researched for 25 years.  More than 400 research reports have been published.  Eighteen of those are high quality randomized controlled studies.  The research has been so impressive that the World Health Organization now recommends only two treatments for the worst of stress (PTSD):  EMDR and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).

EMDR Therapy has been shown to help people recovery from both ordinary stress and extraordinary trauma.

EMDR has even been proven to free people from phantom limb pain after an amputation.  Such pain really adds insult to injury. It is hard enough to have the trauma that caused the amputation, and then the grief over the loss of a body part.  But to have pain in the part as if it is still there is terribly depressing.  Pain medications and surgery often do not resolve it.  Apparently the pains are remembered in the brain.  EMDR is good at helping to “digest” and process such memories so than they enter a calm or neutral state.  No more pain.

If EMDR can help for a problem this intense, think about what it can do for you.

San Clemente is fortunate to have a highly experienced and trained EMDR therapist: Christine Johnston, RN, MFT.
