On ep 153 of American Sex Podcast, Kevin Patterson & Dr. Liz Powell talk about the complexities of both finding a therapist knowledgeable about non-normative lifestyles/identities and becoming a therapist who is. Learn why non-monogamous people shy away from therapy, questions to ask practitioners when searching, and how to handle a judgmental or uneducated health professional or coach. Find out if vanilla therapists can ever be a good fit for clients in alt lifestyles, why many therapists don’t divulge their personal experience with non-monogamy, if there’s professional credentialing to indicate a provider can work effectively with clients in these communities, and why censorship is making it more difficult for people to find polyamory and kink-friendly therapists.
