Meet Laurie Holland Nessland | Licensed Clinical Counselor (LPC) April 26, 2022 Leave a reply

We had the good fortune of connecting with Laurie Holland Nessland and we’ve shared our conversation below. Hi Laurie, what do you want your legacy to be? On one of my volunteer trips to Zambia, a young girl wrote me a letter and gave it to me at the end of my trip; she said, “I pray that you continue with your good heart.” That’s the legacy I intend to leave… set thousands of hearts and minds free from the emotional pain of their past. I developed the Feel Better Fast Technique™ to do just that. It has helped countless children and adults. I now train doctors, mental health clinicians, and even coaches how to use this technique to obtain transformational results with their clients.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more? I am the founder of Healthy Holistics, LLC. I work with clients around the globe who long to experience emotional freedom once and for all. My approach is different in that the time is takes to heal is significantly faster than conventional approaches, primarily because my techniques work on the subconscious level. Most of my clients state they have experienced radical breakthroughs in less than a couple months. Some of my clients have been licensed clinical counselors, doctors, and psychologists and have stated they’ve never experienced such fast results. They have expressed interest in providing the same kind of results to their patients and clients, so now I train others how to do that. I offer both a foundational training and an advanced training to both licensed (i.e. doctors, counselors, etc.) and non-licensed practitioners (i.e. business coaches, life coaches, etc.).

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc. My favorite “local” spot is just over an hour drive outside of Denver: Rocky Mountain National Park. The wildlife and mountian views are spectacular!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to? I have worked with and volunteered with thousands of children over the past 20 years as a counselor and mentor. So many of the children have left a deep imprint on my heart. They continue to motivate me to keep going….to keep spreading light and love. Many of my adult clients have also motivated me in my work because the breakthroughs they experience have a ripple effect on everyone around them. It’s a beautiful thing to witness! So I would like to dedicate this shoutout to every child and adult whom I’ve had the pleasure of serving throughout the years!

Anger is a common emotion we all deal with. The positive side to anger is that it fuels us to take action….the negative side to anger occurs when we choose to take destructive actions. When we don’t have the tools to channel anger constructively, it can ruin relationships, contributes to poor decisions, can lead to causing harm to another person, and can even harm our physical health.

Deal with anger constructively and avoid making a situation even worse:

1. Address your anger internally. Ask yourself why you’re angry and what triggered you. Did someone fail to meet your expectations? Do you feel threatened or unappreciated? Did someone cross the line of your personal boundaries? Are you afraid? Are you sad or disappointed? Dig into the reasons that you feel angry. Oftentimes, anger is a mask for something deeper such as fear or sadness.

2. Sweat it out! Get some exercise. Lift some weights. Go for a hard run or hit a punching bag. Do some High Intensity Interval Training. Anything that gets your heart pumping and blood flowing will release some of that built-up pressure that anger often produces. Exercising will make you feel so much better.

3. Breathe deeply. Anger can feel like it takes control over your body….another way to counter that is to take control over your breath. When you take longer, deeper breaths, it begins to change your physiology and forces anger to turn it down a notch and take a back seat. Consider using some breathing apps to help you train your body to breathe deeply.

4. Take a time-out and go for a quick walk. It’s not always possible to walk away from the situation, but when possible and appropriate, it can help for us to take a short break by walking away. It gives us some time to cool off so that we can think more with our rational, logical brain instead of reacting to our strong emotions.

5. Address the issue rather than the other person. By attacking the other person, you escalate the situation. Once the other person starts defending themselves, finding a solution becomes much more difficult.

6. Hold off on making important decisions. Choices made while angry are rarely good choices.

7. Focus on solutions. What are some ways in which you might be able to resolve the situation?

8. Volunteer regularly. One of the advantages of volunteering is the perspective it provides. It gets you out of your head. You realize that your life could be a lot worse than it is.

9. Get help. Get professional help for serious anger issues. If you’re regularly angry and can’t control your anger, seek out the help of a professional.

It’s important to deal with your feelings of anger in a positive way. If anger is not addressed, it oftentimes festers and becomes bigger and uglier later on and can even have a negative consequence on your health, including headaches, ulcers, liver problems, loss of appetite, and more. Channeling feelings of anger in a healthy, constructive way may take some time and practice, but your body and mind will greatly thank you for every bit of effort you invest in handling anger wisely.
