The military lifestyle is a hard one, and not just for the military member. Between deployments, hardship tours, TDYs, and long hours, it’s enough to tear a family apart. As hard as the military life is on the military member, the family must be considered too. Sometimes you just need someone who understands how the military operates and what you are going through. I have been in 2 branches, deployed, hardship tour, and have 15 years experience as well as currently being a retired vet. I get it.
Polyamory is something many therapists do not understand or want to do. It can be easy to get confused by polycules or how a certain relationship orientation is not ‘societal norm’ and still be functional. Polyamory can be a beautiful thing in all of its many forms. From a Vee to a triad to cross-coupling and more complex relationship orientations, polyamory is not for everyone. It can be a difficult lifestyle for some to understand and flourish in. But when it's done right it can be fulfilling.
One of my passions is LGBTQ counseling. The LGBTQ community is wide and diverse. LGB (sexual orientation) and T (gender orientation) are different sides of the same coin. But the struggles are real, and there are solutions. Being LGBTQ affirmative, I understand the struggles. For several years I have worked with the LGBTQ community. I co-facilitate two transgender/GNC support groups. Also, I present several times a year at different symposiums and venues and am a WPATH member.
