I specialize in stress management, EMDR therapy, polyamory & kink, relationship configuration development, and gender-affirming therapy.
With over 10 years of clinical experience I bring my energetic and caring personality into my work while providing objective feedback in a nonpathologizing therapeutic space. I see counseling as a way to gain support while you process life concerns in the present, reprocess life-altering/significant life events from the past, and worries of the future. If you feel comfortable partnering with a someone who strives to avoid shaming, judging, and guilting others, we'll be a good match. Whether you're straight, gay, bi, queer, or questioning, you are welcomed and accepted in my office.

**Not accepting new clients at this time** There's something different about you. Maybe you're figuring out what sexuality, gender, and romantic life can look like, or exploring polyamory or kink. Or maybe your life has been changed by traumatic experiences. Maybe you're a plural system. You may view the world through a neurotype or spiritual lens that doesn’t match the people around you. Or you might be a parent, just looking for answers for your kid. It might be really hard to trust people--to risk opening up about what you're dealing with. I get it. It’s hard to know who actually has your back.

Open Relationships Non-Monogamy Therapists

Why might an individual want to see a therapist specializing in open relationships and consensual non-monogamy?

A client seeking help with an open or consensually non-monogamous relationship will prefer to talk with a professional whom they can count on to be nonjudgmental. Talking with a supportive therapist may on its own help relieve some of the stigma and challenges partners face. That said, the most important factor in the success of any type of therapy is the ability of the client and practitioner to form a strong, trusting bond. For this reason, an individual or couple could find success with a therapist who does not specialize in non-monogamous relationships but with whom they can build trust.

When should open or consensually non-monogamous partners seek counseling?

Like other couples, polyamorous partners typically seek counseling when they face relationship challenges they can’t solve themselves. In non-monogamous relationships, this could include breaches of trust, including infidelity; unclear rules or violations of boundaries; jealousy of outside partners; the stress of juggling the needs of multiple partners; or the effect of high partner turnover on children. Like those of other couples, polyamorous bonds can be threatened by increasingly frequent arguments, poor or dysfunctional communication, diminished emotional or physical intimacy, or the feeling that something is wrong, even if they don’t know what it is.

Do therapists have special training to gain expertise in open relationships and consensual non-monogamy?

No, but individuals seeking help with non-monogamous relationships would most likely consult a licensed professional with specific training in couples counseling or couples therapy. Couples counseling and couples therapy both involve teaching concrete strategies to navigate conflict in relationships. A good therapist can engage both partners as they explain these approaches but can also work with a single partner.

How long does therapy for consensually non-monogamous couples typically last?

Couples therapy for any type of couple, tends to be relatively time-limited, lasting around 12 weeks on average. A good therapist will tailor sessions to the individual partners’ emotions and sometimes their past, along with patterns found to be repeating in the relationship. In many cases, clients should expect their therapist to assign “homework” between weekly sessions.
