Alternative Relationships

Polyamory, Swinging, Non-Monogamy, Kink,
and more … 

Although counselor training programs have begun to look at alternative relationship structures, it’s usually limited to same-sex partnerships.  In addition to understanding the unique needs of LGBTQ relationships, our therapists have extensive knowledge in the area of non-monogamy (i.e. swinging, polyamory, kink).  Dr. Danielle Duplassie completed her doctoral dissertation on the topic of polyamory and has extensive experience and knowledge of the various types of configurations that non-monogamy can take.  Several other therapists at the Shanti Counselling Centre also have deeper knowledge and understanding of alternative relationship structures and configurations.
