Ethical Non-Monogamy

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:

  • Explore the possibility of pursuing ethical non-monogamy such as an open relationship, polyamory, solo-poly, or relationship anarchy.

  • Process insecurity, jealousy, fear and other common feelings that may arise.

  • Figure out your wants and needs in relationships.

  • Cultivate self-compassion.

  • Strengthen communication skills.

  • Create healthy boundaries.

  • Explore where beliefs around relationships come from.

 

And... lots of learning and unlearning!

 

There is no one-size-fits all of ethical non-monogamy! This is a judgement-free, safe and accepting space to explore your relationships authentically.

 

As a person who practices polyamory myself, this is an area I am passionate about, have lived experience with, and I love supporting people in this community!
