Steps to Overcome Anxiety

Anxieties are hitting epidemic levels in the United States. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) reports that 40 million American adults suffer from an anxiety disorder every year. Dr. Terri talks to Dr. Robert London, a psychiatrist with more than 40 years experience, about a remarkable new kind of therapy that helps overcome anxiety, PTSD and insomnia - with less or no medications and far fewer therapy sessions. After the techniques are learned, a person can do it in the comfort of their own home. All they need is a quiet space and a chair.
