Nice to meet you! My name is Stephanie Sullivan, and my pronouns are she/her. I am a bisexual and ambiamorous writer, educator, entrepreneur, therapist, and polyamory coach. With a decade of higher education, continuing education, and self-study, I have been able to utilize my education and training to support many people through different stages of their journey.
Growing up, I was obsessed with the Eragon series (and yes, the movie adaptation was terrible). In this series, knowing a person or object’s True Name - in the language of magic, of course - gives the speaker incredible power over that person or object. Knowing your own True Name is a source of great power, and your True Name encapsulates all that you are. Because of this, sharing your True Name with someone else is the greatest gift you can possibly give to another person. It is a symbol of complete trust and intimacy, just as sharing who you are - your authentic self - is a vulnerable thing to do in today’s world and is an expression of trust and intimacy.
We may not have the language of magic here in the real world, but my goal is to help you identify and embody your True Self in much the same way as your True Name would in Eragon’s world. This can be an emotional but empowering experience, and I believe that understanding our own strengths, as well as our faults, can help us navigate the world and fashion our relationships to be as fulfilling as possible.
That's why I created Color Your Name - to help you discover YOUR True Self through polyamory and LGBTQIA+ friendly and affirmative coaching.
Having Stephanie present on working with polyamorous clients was extremely helpful and enlightening for our private practice, Palo Alto Therapy. We all gained a lot of knowledge and now know how to be more affirming as a practice. Stephanie was professional, engaging, and did a great job of sharing her knowledge and answering our questions. Overall, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend her. Thank you Stephanie!
