Coping with Cancer: DBT Skills to Manage Your Emotions and Balance Uncertainty with Hope

If you're a regular listener, you know Dr. Holly was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. 1 in 8 women will at some point in their life.

So today we are talking about coping skills and pathways to healing with Elizabeth Cohn Stuntz. She is a psychotherapist in private practice in Mamaroneck, New York, as well as a cancer survivor and Zen student.
