So often we find ourselves triggered when someone we are close to is experiencing a negative emotion. Often we take it personally or get caught up in their story thinking we have to do something about it in order to make them feel better. This hit home for me the other day when I was […]
It’s quite common for people to be totally on board with the idea of being in an open relationship and then have a totally different experience when it goes “live”. People experience a conflict between their cognitive and emotional responses. Many times people are surprised by how triggered they are when their partner comes home […]
Laurie has been instrumental in providing support as well as a healthy perspective to my relationship with my boyfriend. She has walked the walk, and has a passion for bringing the conversation about relationships – open, polyamorous, monogamous, or anywhere in between – to people. She doesn’t encourage her own ideas about relationships, rather is very skilled and very practical about creating what two people are interested in having or exploring. I think she is an important mentor to any couple and I have always felt safe, confident, listened to, and intellectually met with Laurie.
Laurie is a fantastic polyamorous relationship coach. My wife and I were at odds with each other, we had both been involved in Polyamory functions but my wife didn’t want the lifestyle. We tried many other counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and various support groups. We wrote in many forums (about 7) requesting some understanding of our particular situation. Conventional coaches/counselors did not approve or understand polyamory relationships. Laurie was the only person who truly understood our particular problem. She did not push either of us and we learned to trust her. It was difficult in the beginning, there was some very hard, volatile, and emotional sessions. Laurie was able to handle these very difficult sessions with professionalism and kindness while calmly taking control. In the end, the understanding was I am Polyamorous and my wife is Monogamous. It works for us. Without Laurie‘s guidance we would be divorced today. Thank you Laurie!
I have to say this lady knows her stuff! I am monogamous and Laurie is a woman I go to for relationship advice. Her expertise is helping you become empowered in choices you make, seeing beyond your limited views, and finding love and play in all you do. She has helped me release many old thoughts and behaviors around relationships and life. I highly recommend her coaching and any work she offers!
