Polyamorous and non-monogamous relationships are increasingly common. People who identify as non-monogamous or who are in non-monogamous relationships often have unique perspectives and needs. Having a mental health professional who is educated about various aspects of non-monogamy can help you and your partner(s) to negotiate challenges to intimacy and reach informed decisions.
This can be especially true for couples who are in the initial stages of “opening” their relationship. Seeing a mental health professional with your partner or partners can also help you develop strategies to improve communication, increase intimacy, and navigate relationship conflicts as they arise.
