Polyamory counseling believes all forms of non-monogamous relationships are all equally valid, deserve respect and support, and to be seen.
My expertise in non-monogamy is founded in my own academic research, The Lived Experiences of Polyamorous Families in addition to my living experience as a polyamorous person.
Topics in Polyamory and Non-Monogamous Counseling:
- Radically open and honest communication
- Healthy communication strategies
- Boundary setting
- Attachment Styles
- Emotional Intimacy and expressing emotions
- Individuality and autonomy
- Coming out
- Opening up
- Creating families
- Raising children
- Sexual exploration
- Relationship recognition and legal concerns
- Uncomfortable feelings such as jealousy, inadequacy, and insecurity.
While this list is not exhaustive it attempts to share common challenges and experiences that are often encountered. Throughout, my professional career and personal life I’ve encountered all of these (and more). As a counselor I strive to always be uniquely equipped to support you on your journey in healthy relationships.
I provide support to:
- The Cluster/ Polycule/Family members (including Chosen Family)
I am provide to support partners/family members in group counseling sessions by fostering a safe(r) space to share challenges and concerns to support everyone in feeling seen and heard.
For all those interested in building a therapeutic alliance together I offer a free initial session. When working with partners and clusters it is best for everyone to attend the initial session together as the aim is for us to get to know one another, go over the way I work with folks, and answer any questions you have.
