This fall I am hosting two conversation groups on themes I know lots of folks face and feel alone. I want to help you connect with others in meaningful ways, build supportive community, and share resources to support you in these unique situations.

GROUP A

GROUP B

DETAILS

Both groups will meet for four weekly video call sessions on Friday afternoons. All meetings will be recorded if you miss a call you can always catch up later.

These groups aim to offer an informal opportunity to share stories, experiences, and questions with peers in similar non-traditional relationships. I’ll offer some guidance and related resources and tools but this will not be a lecture or webinar. My greatest hope is to help connect you to one another in meaningful ways.

Think friendly, collaborative, intimate, vulnerable and supportive.

Groups are $100 for the four-part conversation. Once you’ve registered you’ll receive an email with a call link and an initial questionnaire and a reflection guide to begin our conversations. I can’t wait to have you join us!

 Queer/Bisexual Women in Straight-Appearing Partnerships

FRIDAYS 1:00-2:00 CENTRAL/11:00-12:00 PACIFIC

BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 6, 2019

We’ll gather for four one-hour video calls to focus on some of the most common questions I hear from clients. These include:

  • How do I come out to my partner/spouse/boyfriend?

  • How do I explore my queer, lesbian, or bisexual side while maintaining my partnership?

  • How do I address the invisibility I feel in both LGBTQ and straight spaces?

  • How do I come out to people who have known me as straight? What do we tell our kids, family, and shared community?

  • How can I incorporate my full identity instead of feeling compartmentalized?

  • Why is this surfacing now? Was this part of me always here? Where did it go? Am I “really gay”?

  • How do I support my partner on his path without taking on additional emotional labor or reinforcing codependent patterns?

  • Can we stay in relationship through this? Should we open our relationship? Should we attempt a platonic partnership?

  • If we stay monogamous how can I build queer, lesbian, or bisexual community?

Monogamous Partners of Polyamorous People

FRIDAYS 3:00-4:00 CENTRAL/1:00-2:00 PACIFIC

BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 6, 2019

We’ll gather for four one-hour video calls to focus on some of the most common questions I hear from clients. These include:

  • How do we establish a sense of balance or equity when our intimacy needs are different?

  • What’s in this poly/mono arrangement for me? What am I looking to gain or learn from this?

  • How will I know if this is too much for me?

  • Can people really make a relationship like ours work?

  • What are my individual needs for intimacy and how do I want to get them met?

  • How do I manage the anxiety/jealousy/insecurity that comes up?

  • How do I clarify my boundaries without impeding on my partner’s autonomy?

  • How do I discern what I really need from the emotional reactions I am having?

  • What of what we really need is to break up?

  • How do we explain what we’re doing to or kids, family, and/or community?
