Relationships can be painful and frustrating. Sometimes, it might feel like you’ve gotten on an emotional roller coaster you didn’t sign up for. You’re so tired of having the same fights over and over. Maybe you’re looking for a therapist to help you and your partner(s) learn how to communicate, regulate your emotions, and be vulnerable with each other. Maybe you're considering opening your relationship and you want support talking about boundaries and expectations. Maybe you need help repairing after you or one of your partners damaged the trust of your relationship. You don’t have to do this alone.
EO is a queer, non-binary, polyam, kinky, witchy, highly sensitive human. They believe that all your identities are valid, and welcome the whole picture of your relationships and the ways that you love into the room. EO specializes in supporting queer, polyam, and kinky partnerships with healing emotional wounds, stopping negative conflict cycles, and creating authentic relationship structures.
Fun facts: EO feels alive when they are singing with friends, bopping around Carrboro, playing in the ocean, creating ritual with Queer Death Club, building ancestral altars, and drumming.
