Navigating "other" types of relationships

I was once as confused as you are now

If you are afraid of killing your relationship, if you and your partner are having difficulty trusting each other, if you are curious about polyamory but really, really don't want to screw up your current relationship-this website is for you.


You and your partner have or are considering a more "open" relationship. It's hard knowing what will and what won't work for you once you eliminate the one BIG rule- don't sleep with other people. Now you may be wondering-

  • If you cross that bridge, will you regret it? 
  • Will my partner look at me differently? 
  • What's wrong with me? I love my partner. 

Your partner is the yin to your yang and you don't want to hurt them or yourself. How are you supposed to navigate all this? The cost of all this uncertainty is high. 


The stress of not knowing what to do next means you and your partner have become more withdrawn, distracted, and less affectionate. Over time this leads to conflict, distress, and alienation in the relationship. You're concerned that opening the relationship will kill it while stress is already taking a serious toll. On you, your partner, and your relationship.


Charting the waters from monogamy to polyamory or an open relationship can be hard. It damn sure was for me. My self-esteem was at a low point, I was teetering on the edge of depression, and then my partner asked about opening up our relationship. I wasn't sure our marriage would survive that calendar year

Our relationship made it through months of heartache, anxiety, tears, and doubt. Looking back, there were things we could have done to make it easier on us both. That's what I want to help you do.


Things began to improve when I began to apply the communication and conflict management theories I had learned in school to myself and my relationship.

Five years later I've used these techniques to help others successfully navigate relationship dynamics and conflict in their own lives.

In my three-month coaching program, we'll do the work to get your relationship where you want to be. At the end of your three months, you'll have

  • Confidence in your ability to handle conflicts productively as they arise 
  • Enhanced trust between you and your partner(s)
  • A clear understanding of where you want your relationship to go and how to get there

My goal is to give you the tools you need to get your relationship back on track and keep it that way. Rather than only talking about your current relationship challenges, I'll also help you learn the skills needed to successfully navigate future challenges. 


You’re at the point of decision. You can either continue down the path of least resistance and deal with relationship woes yourself, or you can choose the road less traveled. The path of least resistance will probably result in you getting the same outcomes you’ve always had. But if you want something different to happen, if you want to change the direction of your relationship you’re going to have to do something different. Make a well-informed choice and pursue a new level of trust, love, and excitement.
