Working with Consensually Non-Monogamous Clients: Shift Your Paradigm

Come learn about the world of consensual non-monogamy that so many of our therapy clients are already exploring. We need to shift our paradigm and lens from one we’ve internalized in a heteronormative, mononormative patriarchy to something different.

Whether we ourselves are monogamous, polyamorous or something else, we all need to examine our own biases in order to affirm our clients’ potential joy. We need to unpack the systems, beliefs, and assumptions we’ve learned ourselves in order to fully show up with clients challenging those norms.

Let’s unlearn and explore new liberatory possibilities together!

Becoming a Kink Friendly Therapist

Many clients question if it’s safe to be “out” with therapists. Unfortunately, many clinicians may have unaddressed biases or assumptions about kink and may inadvertently pathologize clients. This presentation will provide introductory information about kink, help you apply an affirmative, intersectional lens in working with sexually diverse and kinky clients, better assess for safety, differentiate between consensual kink and abuse, and identify kink-affirming resources for cultural humility and to support your clients.

May 31:

Fucking Jealousy: Breaking Down Insecurity and Jealousy with Polyamorous and Monogamous Clients

Jealousy is uncomfortable. People judge it, feel shame about it, push it down, or maybe think someone must have done something wrong if anyone’s feeling it. But if we can help clients tune into what’s underneath jealousy, we might find a valuable source of information. Jealousy can tell us about our needs, desires, boundaries, and perhaps it just wants to be acknowledged and heard.

Join me in exploring the wisdom and skills garnered from consensual non-monogamy experts, interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, somatic tracking, and empathic communication. Through lecture, discussion, and practice we will help clients find a little more ease with the world of jealousy.

*This training will be recorded.*

What Clients are Saying

Don’t just take it from me, let the audience do the talking!

“I absolutely loved your presentation. You are a very confident presenter and one of our strongest for the day… I also appreciated that you were consistent throughout the whole conference in your comments, offering input on pronouns and correct sensitivity comments.  I would definitely reference you as a knowledgeable resource in the community and would love for you to present again…”

Nandi Baldwin, LMHC

President, NM Association of LGBT Issues in Counseling

I liked that you made connections between microaggressions against people of color and against queer people. I really liked that your examples included gender identity/expression stuff as well as sexual orientation. As always, you were funny and engaging.
