Any therapist worth his salt will be able to separate the poly issues from the marital issues. If he's even remotely experienced, he would never encourage one spouse to start having other relationships while the marriage is still on the rocks.

I live in a city of only 200,000. Our local poly group maintains a list of poly-friendly health practitioners, including doctors and therapists. All that means is that they won't jump on polyamory as the beginning and end of the problem.
As I am sure any cat owner will be able to tell you,
someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
from getting into a box yourself.
