Getting Off to a Healthy Start in Your Open Relationships
Saturday, January 14, 2017 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
- Have you recently opened your relationship, and are feeling overwhelmed?
- Do you already have some open relationship experience, but still have some questions about how to manage it?
- Are you an open relationship veteran in a relationship with someone new to your open lifestyle?
Come get an Open Relationship “Tune-Up”!
In this facilitated group, you’ll connect with other people who are also on the open relationship journey.
Bring your questions, your experiences, and your desire to connect with like-minded people. As a bonus, you’ll get my personal help navigating your most pressing open relationship challenges.
As a body-centered psychotherapist and relationship expert, I specialize in creative life and relationship design for visionary “out-the-box” thinkers. I work with individuals, couples, partners, and families to support you in feeling more alive, connected and authentic in your lives and relationships, and I’m delighted to offer these sessions as a way to support you in creating your relationships on your terms.
In addition to offering relationship therapy and coaching to lots of creative couples and poly partner constellations over the years, I have been teaching about polyamory for nearly a decade. I, now, also train other therapists in working with polyamorous family systems.
Why did I decide to offer Open Relationship “Tune-Up” Sessions?
When I first started exploring open relationships, there wasn’t a lot of information or support that was easily available. My partner, at the time, and I struggled just to find a therapist who could tolerate the idea of open relationships, let alone help us figure out how to navigate the process.
We spent a lot of time looking for and building community to help us sort through all of the intense dynamics—managing agreements, handling jealousy, figuring out how to find partners who respected our lifestyle. It was a lot to learn, practically, on our own. Luckily, you don’t have to do it alone!
Use this supportive, faciliated group to answer questions like:
- How do I know if open relationships are really right for me?
- What do I do when our agreements are NOT enough to create safety in our relationship?
- How do I deal with jealousy?
- What do I do when I find I can’t handle what I thought I could handle.
- How do we integrate a new person into our life?
- Why is this so hard?
While there are a lot of social outlets and support groups for exploring open relationships, it is especially important for people who are just beginning the “opening up” process to have dedicated, professional support and expertise so that you can have the important conversations you need to have with each other in a facilitated context, while also doing the deep inner work and learning the skills necessary to thrive in your relationships and manifest your relationship visions.
This is a totally confidential group. We’ll create a safe, supportive space for you to connect with a community dedicated to supporting you in creating healthy open relationships.
