Yep. My husband and I see a counselor. Because we both recognized the need to improve our communication and empathy with each other and are willing to work for it, it's been very beneficial. Just anticipating what the counselor would see & suggest helped. We have not hidden what kind of relationship we have and put it on the table for background, but we both recognize it's not a problem. We are our problems, whether it's communication, the need to deal with past issues, or insecurity. That's what we work on and just try to be sensitive of how poly can add stress if we are dealing with an issue. Acceptance of our relationship model is only important if the counselor makes it a problem or tries to change our minds.
