Poly Affirming Therapy

The way you experience your relationships might look different than the heteronormative expectation.

 

Explaining this to other people can be exhausting.

 

Interestingly enough, some people take offense to the way you have relationships. This doesn’t make any sense, considering they’re not affected by it.

 

Your polyamorous relationship is worth fighting for.

If this sounds familiar, you could benefit from poly affirming therapy.

Life can be tough to navigate if you feel like you’re misunderstood. It can feel like other people just don’t get it. And hey, maybe they don’t. It shouldn’t affect you, right? Well, not always. In the past, or in the present, you’ve been made to feel like the outcast. Like somehow, what you’re doing is wrong. And, this takes up a lot of real estate in your mind. On top of this, there are other things going on in your life. You could be dealing with anxiety, depression, previous trauma, or a laundry list of other issues. It’s EXHAUSTING. Luckily, I can help through polyaffirming therapy.

Common Reasons Folks Start Poly Affirming Therapy

Your experience is unique and unlike anyone else. Even among members of your community, each experience looks very different. While everyone starts counseling for different reasons, here are some commonalities:
  • Feeling unmotivated. You feel like you lack the motivation to do anything. It doesn’t matter what it is, you just don’t want to do it.
  • Loneliness. You feel lonely, even when you are with others. Especially if you’re around people who don’t understand. What’s more, the people who choose to not understand.
  • Anxiety. You feel dread, fear, strange thoughts, and a pounding heart. Sometimes it’s based on context. Other times, the feeling of anxiety doesn’t leave.
  • Feeling lost. You feel like you are wandering through life, feeling like something is missing or your balance is “off.” Maybe you’re struggling with your identity and navigating what that will look like.
These are only a few of the reasons folks pursue polyaffirming therapy. For other reasons, check out this article.

Living with all of this nonsense is exhausting. And, quite frankly, extremely unfair. Sometimes, it feels like you’re battling a culture that has deemed your existence as less than.

I can provide you a space to explore the intricacies of your experience. Even if you are not usually comfortable opening up to people, poly affirming therapy may be able to help.

My Role In Poly Affirming Therapy

I’m not naive. There’s a good chance you’ve had therapists in the past that made you feel bad for being yourself. Or, tried to convince you that this is “a phase.” I don’t subscribe to that nonsense. You. Are. Who. You. Are. It is not my job to change that. And frankly, I don’t want to you. As a therapist, I can help you sort out the messy stuff and discover what’s important to you. Not mold you into the cookie-cutter cut-out we’re “supposed” to be.
