In this episode, we chat with published NYC psychotherapist and MyloWrites expert advisor Dr. Dana Dorfman. We talk about a topic that hits right at home for many we’ve worked with: anxiety. Dana and Mya unpack why all people, including students, parents and teachers, get anxious and how we can respond to it.
