Polyamory Psychotherapy Group Forming

Although more people are discovering and exploring polyamory, it can be hard to find the support you need. A lot of therapists assume that poly folks can’t make a commitment or believe that their problems are due to being poly even though they’re the same issues and difficulties monogamous people have. (The Poly Friendly Professionals list is a good resource, btw.)

Akhila Kolesar, Ph.D. is forming a polyamory support group on Saturdays in San Francisco, so if you’re looking for some help navigating the challenges of your relationships, here’s a good place to go. Here’s the info from her flyer:

POLYAMORY PSYCHOTHERAPY GROUP

Polyamory is a special relational orientation that offers people both unique gifts and unique stressors. Supportive group psychotherapy can be an ideal setting to address the issues experienced by those within this community.
