Are you struggling to navigate ethically non-monogamous relationships? Maybe you want to open your relationship, but your partner is feeling scared and hesitant. Or perhaps you’re already connecting with other people and are struggling to process feelings of jealousy and insecurity. Maybe you and your partner(s) want to be non-monogamous, but this means something very different to each of you. For example, you want to explore both physical and emotional relationships, but your partner is only comfortable with more casual connections.
You want everyone involved to feel fulfilled and comfortable, but this can be so challenging to navigate! If you’re already in an ethically non-monogamous relationship and are having challenges come up around metamour relationships, co-parenting, sexuality or family dynamics, we can help you too. We have several therapists on our team who specialize in working with clients who are exploring the rich landscape of ethically non-monogamous relationships, and we’d love to help you and your partner(s) on your journey to relational fulfillment.
How We Help
At The Center for Couples & Sex Therapy, we understand the emotions, dynamics, barriers, and nuances that can show up in ethically non-monogamous relationships.
We are here to support you and your partner(s) in co-creating whatever kind of relationship feels most fulfilling for all of you. We respect and are affirming of all kinds of relationship structures. Ethical non-monogamy is not one-size-fits-all. We will work with you and your partner(s) to identify your wants, needs, boundaries, and values.
From this place of deeper understanding, you will be able to create the relationships that serve you, communicate your emotional experience clearly and compassionately, and make more informed choices about how to move forward.
We can’t seem to get on the same page about ethical non-monogamy. We both want to explore it, but aren’t sure how to proceed.
We have a clear understanding of each other’s wants, needs, boundaries, and values. We are able to make informed decisions about how to move forward that feel good to both of us.
We can’t even have conversations about non-monogamy because so many big feelings come up and cause us to fight.
We can now communicate our emotional experience in a more clear and compassionate way. We finally feel understood and are able to tackle these hard conversations without escalating into conflict.
I am struggling to support my partner in their other relationship(s) because jealousy has been so overwhelming. I want to support them, but I don’t know how to manage my feelings.
I now feel like I understand where my jealousy is coming from and how to soothe it so that I can better support myself and my partner.
