What Is It?
Finding a therapist who is comfortable with the notion of non-monogamous relationships can be a highly difficult task. Those currently in or seeking to explore open relationships, swinging relationships, polyamorous relationships, or any form of non-monogamous relationship often find their ability to commit, mental health, and sexual interests questioned and pathologized by family, friends, and greater society. In my practice, I provide therapy for exploring couples, non-monogamous couples, triads, and larger families from an affirmative and positive perspective from the perspective that it can and does work.
Whether you are an individual or couple exploring the idea of non-monogamy
for the first time or a member of a long-term non-monogamous relationship
looking for someone who already understands concepts such as polyamory,
metamours, compersion, and love as a way of being rather than as a finite
resource, therapy can help. In my practice, you need not defend your lifestyle
or educate me about polyamory, alternative sexual practices, BDSM and kink,
or non-gender-based sexual orientations. Instead, we will spend our time
together navigating your presenting struggles and feelings in your relationships
from a lens that affirms your romantic choices and assists you in creating and
maintaining strong and fulfilling relationships.
