While many folks are aware of the construct of monogamy - ethically non-monogamous relationships have been more hidden and considered taboo. It may feel more difficult to find a space where you feel understood and accepted in your decision about what relationship style you want. I offer a non-judgemental and accepting space where you can get support to navigate current relationships, learn from former relationships, and/or prepare for the future.
People can come to therapy at any and all stages in the exploration of ethical non-monogamy. In individual therapy sessions, we can work together to:
Investigate the possibility of pursuing an ethically non-monogamous relationship
Process insecurities and fears that arise in your relationship(s)
Figure out your wants and needs in relationships
Strengthen communication skills
Create healthy boundaries
There is no one-size-fits all of ethical non-monogamy or polyamory! This is a judgement-free, safe and accepting space to receive professional support.
