It's Not A Crisis

It's Not A Crisis

Hosted by Doryn Wallach, It's Not A Crisis is a podcast for women in their late 30s and 40s who are navigating the joys and challenges of life and learning to make the most of it. With each episode, Doryn invites a different expert to join her in offering their best advice. Topics will include positive thinking, hormone health, sexual health, growing with your partner, style, tweens/teen advice, small business advice, dating after divorce, finding yourself, beauty and much more! Listeners can expect empathy, sharp insights, and plenty of totally honest (maybe even embarrassing) revelations. “It’s easy to feel suddenly lost in this decade,” says Doryn. “We’re not young, but we’re definitely not old either. This is a podcast where we’ll figure it out together.” ABOUT DORYN Doryn is an award-winning fine jewelry designer and former interior designer, social worker, radio show host and lifestyle blogger. Feeling lost in her 40s, she started reaching out to her network of friends — including experts in beauty, health, parenting, fashion, business and more — to help find her path. Her podcast “It’s Not a Crisis” was born when Doryn realized that her search for answers could help other women navigate their journeys as well. Doryn holds an AA in interior design from New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology and a BA in human services, counseling and sociology from Simmons College. She also studied social work at NYU. Doryn lives in New York City with her husband, teenage daughter and tween-age son. Help support the podcast by joining me on Patreon for extra content and more...
