As a therapist, I recognize that not all relationships fit into a traditional monogamous mold. Some partners practice consensual and ethical non-monogamy, involving multiple partners at a variety of levels of intimacy. Some relationships (monogamous and non-monogamous) incorporate elements of consensual kink or exchange of power. I am both familiar and comfortable with a wide range of relationship styles.
Traditional “couple-based” models of treatment sometimes fall short in working with these relationships, and must be adapted to meet the needs of non-traditional partnerships. I have experience in doing this, and I strive to create a safe and nonjudgmental environment in which the specific needs of your relationship(s) are considered.
