My name is Dusty and I am a Certified Professional Life Coach specializing in Relationships and “alternative” lifestyles.
Having grown up in a large family, surrounded by love and acceptance, as well as, spending years as a young child immersed in a community of alcoholics and drug addicts through my exposure to intimate AA and NA meetings, I have found meaning and purpose in life! Which is helping others to overcome their personal challenges and past trauma to live a life of purpose and love, without shame, blame, or guilt for who they are.
I truly believe that people are inherently good, but rarely are we raised with healthy relationship role models and many of us are lost; having had traumatic pasts, experienced the consequences of drug or alcohol abuse, have gone on paths dictated to us by authority figures, socioeconomics, or religion. My goal is to help folks unpack all that dogma and shame that clouds the mind, heart and spirit, and doesn’t allow for authenticity and self-love.
Through coaching, I provide an open, safe and professional atmosphere where we determine the client’s goals and work with them to bring about positive change. I have developed my specifically tailored coaching methods based on relationship best practices, multiple theories, and a large reservoir of resources. With over 20 years of personal experience in Ethical/Consensual Non-Monogamy, Polyamory, and the Kink and LGBTQ+ community, I specialize in helping others navigate alternative lifestyles and relationship styles.
Whether you are just dipping your toes into ethical non-monogamy or you just want to learn how to effectively communicate with your partner or potential partner(s), let me help you by giving you the tools you need to open your heart and your mind to the infinite possibilities of alternate loving relationships.
