Couples Therapy: Monogamy & Non-Monogamy
Monogamy, Open Monogamy, Non-Monogamy, & Polyamory
In addition to working with those in monogamous relationships, I also help individuals and couples navigate the complexities and joys of non-monogamous, open, and polyamorous relationships. Clear goals, boundaries, trust, respect, consent, and communication are vital but not sufficient aspects to success in these partnerships. Whether you are newly considering opening up your relationship or have been a part of the community for some time, I’d be happy to help you explore and create the relationship structure that is most pleasurable for you.
Let’s Face It:
Relationships can be hard and there are many reasons why we can struggle in them. You may feel disconnected from your partner or find that your relationship is not to be as fulfilling as it once was. Maybe you’re preoccupied with fears of rejection, abandonment, or jealousy. You might even feel hopeless that you’ll ever find “the one.” Often, unresolved hurts and traumas from our past affect how satisfied we feel in relationships.
Dating in the age of Tinder and Grindr can also leave people feeling frustrated, jaded, and confused. Unhelpful thoughts and painful feelings can surface. Sometimes we cope with those thoughts and feelings in ways that don’t ultimately fulfill us.
Couples therapy can help you better communicate with your partner and improve your satisfaction with your connection. It can bolster your self-awareness and confidence, helping you to choose relationships that are worth your time and value. It can also help you discontinue patterns that are draining and ultimately unfulfilling.
