Non-Monogamy Relationship Counseling
If you are just starting your journey into non-monogamy or have been practicing alternative relationship dynamics for some time it is important for you to feel understood and affirmed in your choices. It can be extremely frustrating to have to explain and justify your relationship choices in a setting where you should feel relief and empowerment. Our therapists at Lone Wolf understand and respect the intricacies of non-monogamy and can help you navigate the unique experiences that folks with different relationship structures can experience
Meaningful Identity Change
Starting to shift your perspective on monogamy and exploring your own relationship design can feel like a meaningful identity change. Seeking support in shifting this piece of your identity can be very beneficial. You are not alone in navigating this transition. This transition can have an added layer of complexity if you are currently in a monogamous relationship. Our therapists will help you communicate your relationship identity shift with your partner and help the two of you decide how to navigate the next stage of your relationship.
While navigating different relationship dynamics your attachment system may be triggered in different ways. Non-monogamy relationship counseling can help you navigate communication, boundaries, jealousy, opening and closing the relationship, coming out, and creating relationship agreements.

Types of Non-Monogamy Relationships
Open to love in multiple forms with multiple partners. Typically if someone identifies as polygamous they have multiple attachment partners whom they are in committed relationships with. Polyamory is often about accepting love as it comes and not confining it to just the dyad format.
People in an open relationship may have one committed partner and multiple casual sex partners. This relationship design traditionally centers around having one romantic partner and openness to outside sexual encounters.
Practicing ethical non-monogamy in an open consensual way. This relationship design puts a strong emphasis on communication and openness so that all partners are aware and consenting.
Involves committed couples consensually "swapping" partners specifically for sexual purposes. It can range from strangers at sex parties or clubs, to friends who have known each other for years.
Someone who identifies as a relationship anarchist typically is critical of the conventional cultural definition and expectations of relationships. Likely this person will challenge the view that certain relationships should be valued over other relationships. They may be resistant to creating rules and agreements and hold the value that love is abundant.
Having both monogamy and non-monogamy aspects in your relationship. This can vary greatly from person to person.
