Cheers Sexy People!
Hello, Loving Without Boundaries (LWB) community! As always, I am sending good energy and vibes of hope and love to our amazing community. I believe that sharing inspirational stories of hope, inclusion, and healthy lifestyles are more important than ever. If you are looking for ways to connect with loved ones you may be separated from, check out this blog post for resources and ideas. On to another inspiring story…
I am truly honored and thrilled to share my latest podcast interview that I released with Kate Loree, LMFT, whom I was excited to invite to join me on the podcast. Kate has a vast background in the sex positive and consensually non-monogamous (CNM) relationship world. She is also the founder and co-host alongside Sunny Megatron of her podcast called “Open Deeply” where guests dive deep into the vulnerable experiences that shaped them, all through a sex positive and trauma-informed lens. How fascinating – I love it – and that mission aligns so closely with our mission here at Loving Without Boundaries. I’m so excited that Kate has added another stellar book, “Open Deeply: A Guide to Building Conscious, Compassionate Open Relationships’, to our growing collection of important works to turn to, so that we can live our most fulfilling, sex-positive lives. The description of the book mentions that attachment theory is a theme through which the book is written, as well as stating “Non-monogamy is a wild and woolly ride—and Open Deeply is here to help make it a great one.” YES! Kate, I am so impressed with your decades’ worth of experience, as well as your love and care for our growing CNM community. Thank you so much for your diligent, thoughtful, and heartfelt work. You are truly amazing! I fully support your mission, and am cheering you on every step of the way! I hope that we get to meet in person someday soon.
Here is her bio:

She is an EDSE certified sex educator and an EMDR certified therapist with additional training in the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM) for the treatment of trauma.
