As we are wounded in relationship(s), so we are healed in relationship(s).

Group psychotherapy is a highly effective form of therapy. A small number of individuals meet weekly, under the guidance of Susan Stork, LCPC, OR led by Susan -- to explore problems and concerns and to learn from each other.

Group therapy provides the opportunity to learn about and experience yourself in a SAFE interpersonal setting.

You will better understand healthy and unhealthy relational patterns, identify personal strengths and wisdom, decrease feelings of shame, isolation and loneliness, and improve interpersonal relationships.

Group Confidentiality

One of the most important aspects of group therapy is the trust that is built between members. Each member must be prepared to make a commitment of confidentiality and respect for each of their fellow members. Depending on the group, some other commitments might include agreeing to come for a minimum number of sessions, coming to every group meeting or informing group facilitators should you have to miss a group.

As in any relationship, the development of trust, cohesion, and a sense of safety allows people to talk personally and honestly.

Neurodiversity in Baltimore 

At Space Between Counseling Services, we understand that being on the autism spectrum is not your entire identity, but an integral part of your being that impacts various facets of your life. This group, which will be comprised of adults who are on the spectrum or identify as neurodiverse, is designed to help members explore everyday problems and their solutions.

Any complex skill, especially relational work, requires instruction and lots of practice AND feedback. Without feedback, it's easy to end up rehearsing errors rather than skills.  This group setting will allow you to both practice skills and receive feedback in real time while in the presence of members who may understand your unique systems for interacting in our world.

It’s inexplicably challenging to live in a world with people whose brains develop and function differently than yours.  You’re forced to interpret and exhibit the norms of neurotypical conduct while developing and maintaining your own unique systems for interacting in our world.  

Neurodiversity. It’s not a term that rolls off the tongue easily but it’s a concept where neurological differences are to be recognized and respected as any other human variation.”
