We were beyond excited to have a conversation with Dr. Russell Kennedy, The Anxiety MD! There is so much good content in this interview that we split it into 2 parts so you can take time to really absorb the message of hope that Dr. Russ offers to those who deal with anxiety.

“If you block yourself from tears, you’re really blocking yourself from healing”.
