What is polyamory?

Polyamory is defined as "the practice of engaging in multiple romantic (and typically sexual) relationships, with the consent of all the people involved." 

In theory this sounds neat and tidy, but in practice it's anything but. There are as many forms of polyamorous relationships as there are people practicing polyamory. Unlike monogamy, there's no real road map or set of societal expectations (in US culture, anyway) to guide how these relationships should start, take shape, and maintain. 

So how do you do polyamory well?

Good question! I consider my own introduction to the polyamorous world a bit of a trial by fire, and I'm looking to ease the way for other interested individuals. 

I offer individual coaching to focus on personal and interpersonal strengths and needs. We will work on communication techniques, introspective practice, exploration of new relationship styles, and more. From DADT to kitchen table and beyond, I can help you find the relationships and structure that meets your unique needs and guide you around the common pitfalls. 

Confused by any of the terminology? Don't worry. I've got resources for that as well.
