So you've decided to open up your relationship and delve into the world of ethical non-monogamy. You're feeling overwhelmed and excited at the prospect of what this could mean for your relationship. Things have shifted with your partner and you're ready to take the next steps but aren't quite sure where to start. You feel as though you still have some work to do in deconstructing monogamy and viewing your relationship through a non-monogamous lens. You're worried about jealousy or feelings are arising as other relationship dynamics begin to form. You've thought "if only we could talk to someone about these challenges."

While I use several evidence-based therapeutic models, my approach begins by building a therapeutic relationship built on compassion and respect.
Life isn't always in our control (and no, I'm not a fan of that either). In therapy, we can learn to manage the things within our control - so that we are better equipped to contend with life’s inevitable ups and downs. Whether you're experiencing a big transition, stress from everyday life, a personal loss, or a severe mental illness - we can work together to make things easier. I have experience treating individuals with a variety of concerns or mental health diagnoses. I strive to make everyone - of any body shape/size, sexuality, gender, race, religion, or disability - comfortable in the therapy room (and in their own skins).

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a McHenry relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in McHenry.
