discover a supportive community of polyamorous & LGBTQIA+ folx through group work!
I offer a variety of groups throughout the year, based on both interest, turnout, and scheduling. Some groups will be “closed” — in which a certain number of people will be included in the group and this group will learn and grow together, knowing that no one new will be added to the group. Other groups will be “open” — open to anyone who decides to show up to the group and wishes to participate.
Learn more about the types of groups offered, the pros and cons of group work, and how to get started below!

Groups have many benefits, but they can be intimidating at first! Are you hesitant to join or do you have a few questions before reaching out? Explore some common Q&A below:
Should I join an open or closed group?
There are pros and cons to each type of group. A closed group will have the opportunity to get to know one another on a deeper level and may continue to offer support to one another long after the group has ended. These groups may create lasting friendships and may be able to achieve a sense of safety and security that an open group may not have. An open group will have the opportunity to get to know many different people and experiences. These groups may be able to offer different insights and perspectives each time, and will often consist of a unique, different group of people every meeting.
Participation in a closed group will cost more up-front, and it is requested that you make it to as many meetings as possible before the group ends. This helps with consistency and allows the group members to get to know one another, in order to achieve the sense of closeness and security you are looking for. These meetings will be slightly more structured and focused.
Participation in an open group will be pay-as-you-go, and you can attend one meeting or 20 meetings. These groups will be more long-lasting, though with a different assortment of folx every meeting. You will get something different out of each meeting, and these meetings’ topics may be a bit more spontaneous, depending on who shows up.
How does payment and pricing work in a group setting?
Prices will vary, but typically range between $25-$75 per group call. Some groups can be paid for in advance as a bundle and may include a reduced fee.
Why join a group rather than meeting with you one-on-one?
Group work can be beneficial for many reasons. First, if you have felt alone or struggled to find a like-minded community, groups can begin to offer that sense of support and connection. Second, many people find that it is helpful to hear thoughts, perspectives, and advice from a diverse array of other people. This helps us avoid confirmation bias. Confirmation bias is something that you may find when talking with family or friends, or even when you are talking to a coach or therapist one-on-one. Having different peoples’ perspectives can often help you find solutions that otherwise would not have been considered. Lastly, group sessions can be much more affordable than a one-on-one coaching session.
What happens after I reach out with interest in a group?
If you are interested in a group and reach out, I will add your name to a list of people interested in that group. Once there is enough interest, I will then reach out to everyone on that list and begin to schedule the group. Some groups may be combined; if you have previously shown interest in a group, I may also reach out to you about a different group offering if it is a potentially good fit. Before each closed group, I will also schedule a 20-minute consultation call with anyone who is interested in order to get to know you, explore any questions or concerns you may have, and ensure that you will be a good fit for the group and the group work offered.
Are you ambiamorous? Join our online community on Facebook!
I am very passionate about the importance of community and finding like-minded people in life. I also try to offer accessible resources as much as possible. Therefore, I founded the Ambiamory Discussion and Support Group on Facebook. This is a free group for ambiamorous folx to join and discuss their relationship, regardless of what their relationship structure currently looks like. I have noticed that both monogamous and polyamorous Facebook groups can often be judgmental and unhelpful for someone who is, or may be, ambiamorous. This is my attempt to find a safe and supportive space for those who can be happy in many different relationship structures.
Myself and others offer free advice and feedback in this group. If you are ambiamorous, or think you might be, I encourage you to join now!
