Poly-Friendly, Poly-Affirming Therapy

You are safe here. That's one of the first things we want you to know.


Poly-friendly therapy may not be easy to find.


Members of the polyamorous community often reach out to us with concerns about whether the therapist they are matched with will be non-judgmental when disclosing their relationship preferences. For this reason, we felt it was important to include poly-affirming therapy in our list of specialties.


We have therapists on staff who work with many members of the poly community, and who understand the unique stigmas and microaggressions that poly individuals may face when seeking therapy. We want to ensure you that this is a safe space to seek treatment and that we understand that your emotional safety while in session is paramount to successful treatment.


Whether you are struggling with an issue or simply want to develop stronger communication skills, we provide counseling and coaching both online and in-person, to help you strengthen your relationship(s).


We are poly-friendly, kink-aware, and fetish-friendly. 

Committed to providing a safe environment to express all levels of your sexual or gender identity.  If you are having difficulty finding a poly-friendly or poly-competent therapist, we can help. Contact Golden Vibes Counseling for both in-person and online therapy in Wisconsin.

What Does it Mean to be Poly-Friendly, Poly-Affirming Therapists in Madison, WI?

Above all, we know that polyamorous relationships are in no way inferior to monogamous relationships! Trust, openness, and honesty are paramount in poly relationships. Those qualities are just as important in all relationships. You might be seeking therapy for yourself or counseling for yourself and your partner(s). Either way, you can expect our therapists will be affirming of the fact that polyamory is the right choice for you. We understand that some in our society may believe that monogamy is superior. And, others may believe that polyamory is superior when it comes to intimate relationships. The truth is, it is really about what best fits you and your partner(s).


Non-Judgment is Core to Golden Vibes Counseling Center's Work

It's a game-changer when you know that your therapist is not judgmental of the fact that your relationship(s) are ethically non-monogamous. Now, you can discuss relationship concerns more openly. Without fear of judgment based on relationship preferences. All relationships, monogamous, poly, and otherwise, have challenges. We understand that these challenges do not happen because the relationship is polyamorous or monogamous. Instead, relationship problems can occur in any relationship due to a number of issues. Issues often include communication struggles. Often, differences of opinion. Perhaps, reminders of past trauma, Or, unresolved issues from past relationships.
