Licensed Clinical Social Worker in , OH
LGBTQ relationships are just like straight relationships...except when they're not! The rainbow can add layers of complexity and nuance to relationships that are can be hard to explain to your straight friends. And let's be honest, Cincinnati is a great place to live in many ways, but it's not always easy to be different here. I understand some of what you're dealing with, and I want you to help me get the rest of it, so I can help you make it make sense.
Men! You're my favorite clients, hands down! Y'all make progress so fast. Sometimes much faster than women, to be honest. You're used to being coached, so when I tell you what to do, you just do it...and it usually works! I love your directness, your clear-headed approach to life, and your willingness to try something different if it will get you what you want...a happier relationship and better sex.
Finding a poly-friendly therapist can seem hard, especially in fairly conservative Cincinnati. The last things you need are judgment, condescension, or moralizing. Consensually non-monogamous relationships have their own complexities and needs, some of which are similar to monogamous ones, and some of which are vastly different. Finding someone who both understands that and is open to learning about your particular situation is key. I'm knowledgeable enough to help and eager to learn from you!
