Yes it is. For someone with just a phobia, they know exactly what their triggers are and can just work on gradual exposure (or flooding in some cases) until they lose that fear completely. But for someone with GAD, there's a lot of triggers and overall more time and care is required in getting their overly sensitized nervous system down to it's normal functioning levels.
