About My Clients

Counseling individuals, couples and moresomes on creative relationship structures: Polyamory, Open Relationships, Consensual Non-monogamy and Intimacy, with a focus on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I also specialize in mood related challenges, including anxiety, phobias, panic disorder, OCD and depression, as well as career transitions. As a member of the polyamorous, LGBTQ, and burner communities, I share my extensive personal and professional experience with clients.

My Background and Approach

I am a relationship enthusiast with 20 years of counseling experience. In the past 9 years, I have focused on creative relationship structures, consensual non-monogamy, communication and intimacy for individuals, couples and moresomes. For 9 years I have led the Polyamorous Women’s Discussion Group, a focal point for thought leaders in CNM. Dr. Mark Sisti and I also host the Polyamorous Men’s Discussion Group. Together we facilitated Relationship Anarchy: A Panel Discussion and created the workshop Consensuality: Experientials that Challenge Awareness. As an MSW candidate working alongside Dr Sisti, my preferred modality is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a third generation Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. My additional coursework includes sex therapy and perspectives on pornography at ICP.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My experiences in the polyamory, CNM, and LGBTQ communities have directly informed my choice of specialization. As I steeped myself in these communities from a personal perspective, I was asked to use my counseling skills and experience as a lawyer and law firm partner hiring expert, to advise those in the CNM and kink communities. Over the past number of years, I have worked regularly in my counseling practice with those in the poly and LGBTQ communities. My general training includes DBT, ICP coursework in sexuality and pornography, Human Awareness Institute workshops, Gottman Couples Work, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and various ACT trainings. As an MSW candidate, I also do supervised fieldwork with Suffolk Cognitive Behavioral with an emphasis on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a third generation Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP).
