I'm writing this note to update all of you readers about some changes in my practice this spring.
As many of you know, I am expecting a baby this summer and plan to take time away from seeing clients July-August of this year. However, due to an unexpected personal change, my in-person practice is moving out of state even sooner, on May 1, 2019 (my family is all healthy- don’t worry, it’s an exciting change).
I am still seeing clients in my NE Portland office until May 1, 2019. If you'd like to meet in person (even for a one session check-in), please reply to this email so I can be sure to get you on the schedule.
After May 1, I am still open to supporting you in a variety of ways. I will list them below. Even if you never sign up for a program or meet with me please know I am available to offer resources and referrals anytime. You can reach me using this email (firstname.lastname@example.org), you can find me on facebook here or here, on instagram, or on either of my websites (nonmonogamous.com or ginasena.com).
I am grateful to all of you for being a part of my professional journey in Portland. It’s been such a blessing to get so much community support for the work I do, and so have so many incredible local people share their intimate lives with me.
You are all in my heart no matter where I live or practice, Gina
ONGOING COACHING/COUNSELING OPTIONS
ONLINE COACHING & COUNSELING
First, I will continue to see clients (as I have been) online using Zoom video conferencing services until July and again in the fall.
IN PORTLAND, OREGON
If you'd like to get support from a Portland-area provider there are several I highly respect listed here. I'm also open to hopping on the phone for a quick chat to help you connect with a provider if you have specific questions about finding someone who can meet your unique needs.
COACHING FOCUS AREAS
SOLO RELATIONSHIP COACHING
I will continue supporting folks as individual clients who are interested in changing relationship patterns. These hour-long sessions have been instrumental for lots of folks who are just starting dating after a break up, who need help asking for what they need in partnerships and/or who are thinking about ending a relationship.
I am still offering premarital/pre-commitment counseling online if you or anyone you know might be interested in focused support around a shared life commitment. These sessions have been helpful for folks who want an integrity-fueled plan for the future without a specific religious dogma attached.
SHOULD WE BREAK UP?
I'm also still offering discernment counseling online for folks considering breaking up who want to process that in a compassionate way. Some people call this “conscious uncoupling.” Whatever you call it, think of this an a kind or friendly alternative tho the way most people view breakups. Feel free to refer folks you know who might be interested here.
NON-MONOGAMY, POLYAMORY & OPEN RELATIONSHIPS
I still support tons of people considering consensual non-monogamy and/or practicing it for a long time. I’ve helped thousands of clients decide if, when, and how consensual non-monogamy is a fit for them. Read more here.
SEXUALITY COUNSELING FOR PASSION, INTIMACY & DESIRE
I’ll be finishing up my Sex Counseling credential later this year. This has meant helping people overcome common sexual dysfunctions in relationships and in long-term relationships overcoming desire fatigue. Info on that can be found here.
WORKSHOPS & EVENTS
FREE MONTHLY MASTERCLASS
I've been hosting a monthly free relationship tune-up call every month for the last year. You can find information about them here. Please sign up right away if you're interested, they tend to fill quickly.
POLYAMORY 101 RETREAT
I'll still host my Polyamory 101 Annual Retreat in Portland (and soon I'll have an online version). You can sign up to be invited here.

FREE RELATIONSHIP RESOURCES ONLINE
FREE CONVERSATION STARTERS
I send a weekly set of conversation starters for couples via email and if you are not already receiving it you may want them, you can sign up to get those here. I also send this list weekly-ish updates with free worksheets, reflection guides, and relationship resource recommendations.
My podcast Swoon launched last week. We'll share information on sex and intimacy and action steps for relationships there once per week. It's available on any of your favorite podcast platforms (I'd love it if you left a review).
FREE TOOLS AND RESOURCES ONLINE
