Connecting with the Power of Your Group and Benefits of Group Therapy, Ep.38

Empowered By Design Podcast with Dr. Lyz: Psychology, Mental Health and Wellness, Love and Relationships, Mindset, Self-care, Self-reflection and Personal Growth

Dr. Lyz: Licensed Psychologist, Wellness Entrepreneur, Life and Love Coach


I share the power of connection in this episode - in groups organically in life and those groups that we create with intention.  I am grateful for a wonderful Visionistas Team that is supportive, empowering, fun, and uplifting.  Throughout life we experience the opportunity to connect with others in groups - family, friends, teams, work, etc. and when we establish trust and safety in connection, the group experience can be transcendent!  I share a list of therapeutic factors that are meaningful in group therapy and how you can recognize the dynamics in your own life groups.
