Therapy for Poly and Open


Polyamory. Open Relationship. Non-Monogamy.

No matter what you label your love, it can still have issues to work through! Human beings are complex. Maybe you are new to this type of relationship? Just want to make a poly relationship better? Relationship therapy may be able to help! Let's talk about your open relationship in an open, honest way!

Some Common Concerns With
Non-Monogamous Relationships:

  • Shared Values
    Values are ​the cornerstone of any open, poly or non-monogamous relationship. What are the standards you and your partner(s) have set? How often might you want to revisit these value standards? 

  • Communication
    Assume nothing! Healthy communication is essential for relationships of all types. Unfortunately, many of us have patterns of communicating that don't serve us well long-term. What concerns do you have about clear communication with your partner(s)?

  • Relationship Expectations
    While this sounds a lot like the topics above, there are some distinct differences that make expectations their own issue to discuss. Clear, up-front discussion about expectations is vital to happiness. Having this conversation helps avoid crossing lines you didn't know existed.

  • Jealousy
    Jealous is not always rational. So, it can't be dealt with in a ​strictly rational way. What is the root of your jealousy? When is jealousy triggered? Do you have unresolved fears of loss or being replaced? We can get to the root of these issues, together.
