"We envision a world where people aren't constricted by gender binaries and are free to create joyful and fulfilling relationships. Queer people will feel safe accessing their expansive history. People of all sizes, colors, races, abilities, genders, and orientations can take up space and access quality care. Words like 'fat' and 'gay' are just words and will no longer be insults. And, where beauty standards created and supported by white, cis, hetero, upper-class people are obliterated, and we all just get to fucking live life."
LBTQIA+ Affirmative Therapy:
The founder, Morgan, received their training throughout graduate school, one of the country's only LGBTQ-focused mental health programs. Tamara learned much from Morgan and received their certification as an Affirmative Therapist through The Modern Sex Therapy Institute. Many of our clinicians attended graduate schools where they chose LGBTQ or gender-specific tracks.
Rebel Heart Therapy provides monthly in-service training opportunities for our clinicians on exploring sexuality, gender exploration, working with women who love women, working with male couples, ethical nonmonogamy, and more. Supervision and consultation in Affirmative Therapy is a primary aspect of the Rebel Heart Therapy clinical experience.
At Rebel Heart, we look at kink as an orientation. You aren’t just a person that likes kink. You are, at the heart of yourself, kinky. It’s not just something you do; it’s who you are. There are parts of people’s lives that society dictates are wrong and shouldn’t be talked about openly. We live and love outside the box at Rebel Heart, so we welcome conversations that allow our clients to explore who they really are and show up authentically.
We invite you to:
talk about your latest scene or evaluate a scene that went wrong
explore the nuances, excitements, and potential hang-ups with your D/s relationship
let us help you understand and negotiate your boundaries and the roles you desire
explore shame and internalized societal messages and judgments
discuss consent and how to recognize the difference between abuse and consensual S/M
We know that poly relationships can be dynamic, exciting, and fulfilling. We also know that it can be hard to navigate multiple relationships, deal with jealous feelings or conflict, and continue to make time for yourself.
Our therapists have personal and/or professional experience in polyamory. Still, more importantly, we value it and the beauty that comes from loving outside the box.
We invite you to bring as many partners or metamours into the session as you’d like. We will take time to get to know the unique aspects of your relationship, partners, and polycule. Our therapists will help everyone identify and define the issues causing concern. The goal is for the polycule to heal from past hurts, create healthier boundaries, and learn vital communication skills to build a happier relationship.
