Do you believe Group Therapy will be right for you? Group Therapy promotes a safe space for an hour and a half where different types of people come together and work to reassure each other they are not to feel isolated by their mental conditions. By sharing ideas and seeing different point of views Dr. Marlene Kender navigates regularly talking and listening in the space to keep in perspective one very important message, “You are not alone.” With mental health issues being more commonly diagnosed, it is still very uncommon to feel comfortable talking about it. Isolation and oppression take on different forms and Dr. Kender promotes conversations to be positive, proactive and geared towards understanding and accepting each other! This eccentric group takes the whole session out of her hands until finally, even she cracks. It’s hilarious, chaotic, and honest as it deals with living with who they are and not feeling alone.
