"Nonmonogamous relationships allow for more flexibility and negotiation about how close, connected and involved partners want to be.”
― Jessica Fern, Polysecure: Attachment, Trauma and Consensual Nonmonogamy
I'm a therapist for non-monogamous people in Oakland, CA! Non-monogamous relationships can come with unique challenges and complexities that are different from those in monogamous relationships. It can be helpful for non-monogamous individuals or couples to seek therapy from a therapist who is specifically versed in non-monogamy. A therapist who is not familiar with non-monogamous relationships may hold biases or misunderstandings that could hinder effective therapy. Non-monogamous folks need to be able to go to therapy without fear of stigma or pathologizing.
A therapist versed in non-monogamy can provide support and guidance for individuals or couples navigating the complexities of multiple relationships. They can offer insights into communication, boundary-setting, and conflict resolution techniques that are specific to non-monogamous dynamics.
