I am a polyamory–friendly and polyamory–affirming psychologist.

For a definition of polyamory, please click here. 

 

Do you ever feel frustrated that the paperwork at your therapist's office: 

  • doesn't ask about your chosen family?
  • leaves no space to write about your other partner(s) as if they don't exist?

Do you answer your therapist's questions about "your boy/girlfriend" with "which one?" 

 

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, or if you sang with joy when you read the title of this page, then you might be looking for a polyamory - affirming therapist! 

 

Doctor Abi's beliefs about relationship configurations:

I believe that it is up to the individual to decide what kind(s) of romantic and/or sexual relationship(s) make the person feel the happiest and the most fulfilled.

I do not assume that if you are not single, that you are in only one relationship.

I do not assume that people are only monogamous. 

I promise to ask you about your relationship(s) and be respectful of how you answer. 

 

I am always interested in how I can be more polyamory-friendly so I work to learn more:

I attend trainings to learn more and I consult with experts in the field.

I look for research and readings in the field. Click here for my colleague's article about polyamory and diversity.
