In Partnership with Lezcronymz Productions + Reine Noire Brand + Straight But Not Narrow Ladies

We Need More QPOC, Polyamorous, Relationship Therapists. That’s it. That’s the Headline.

QUESTION: What do you get when you have a sudden explosion of and peaked interest in Polyamorous content caused by the loosening of traditional patriarchal relationship standards?

ANSWER: A void. A Black one to be exact.

All “polyamory is a white thing” jokes aside, the lack of qualified BIPOC therapists who specialize in working with Polyamorous couples can be attributed to the lack of Black, polyamorous folk in general. As black folk, we often resort to being our own therapists and self-healers. We take our struggles with a shot of Hennessy and a fat L because…often times we’re not comfortable (or compatible) with mental health practitioners who don’t look or feel like us. Racial, Cultural, and Class Bias in the therapeutic setting is real and valid. That’s why seeing therapists like Amie D. Wells, LHMC, is inspiring and more importantly—affirming.

Amie D. Wells, LMHC, (she/her) is a New York-based Black, queer & non-monogamous licensed trauma-informed Psychotherapist and Relationship & Wellness Coach. As the founder of Your Path to Freedom Coaching, LLC (site coming soon!), she offers culturally aware and research-based programs that are specifically catered to BIPOC, LGBTQIA & Non-monogamous individuals and couples+ who want to unlearn toxic relationship patterns to build stronger and healthier romantic connections. After engaging in an intentional process of nurturing a holistic relationship with herself, Amie has been able to show up authentically in her own life and maintain connections that are healthy, loving and long-lasting. She is passionate about helping her community have a life full of freedom, intimacy, love and mindful connection with themselves and with others.

This Wednesday at 9:30PM EST, we’ll sit down with licensed Psychotherapist and Relationship Coach Amie D. Wells to unpack the origins of Monogamy in the BlPOC Community. Then we’ll jump into how to assess whether or not you’re ready to actually be in a non-monogamous relationship. Want to get in on the discussion?

Join our mailing list to get the Secret Show link and gain access to our LIVE audience. Just want to watch? We’ll be streaming on Instagram.

Catch Wells at Lezcronymz’ More Love, More Jawns Speed-Dating & Friending event on December 18th. She’ll be offering tips and advice for your (potentially) polyamorous journey in a LIVE open discussion. Bring your questions and previous polyamory woes for an in depth group coaching session. The best part? Attendees will have a chance to win a FREE 1-1 Coaching Session with Wells.
