Cody Glover, LPC

Do you feel you have to hide who you are and how you feel? Does it ever seem like you’re just out of sync with the rest of the world? Ever wish you could just be who you are?

Howdy, my name is Cody. You’ve taken at least two monumental steps to get here. In the very least you have decided something should be different and took action. I would be ecstatic to walk beside you in this phase of self discovery and living freely as your true self.

I specialize in open, nonmonogamous relationships such as polyamory and swinging, alternative lifestyles such as kink / BDSM, LGBT+, and secular or alternative faiths such as paganism. Trying to live more freely and authentically can be hard. Some struggle feeling something is wrong with them. Some people have just been polybombed, the love of their life seeming to say they’re not enough. Others, having taken the leap can’t seem to stop fighting. Feeling isolated, scared, tired, and like they’re going to lose everything.
Take a moment to imagine your life as it could be in a few months. You are in love, all over again. With your partner, a new partner, yourself, and how you live. Accepted for who you are, allowed to love in a way that feels natural, you are excited about your new life.
Coming into alternative worlds, I saw people go to amazing therapists who just didn’t understand. I watched friends spend the first few sessions teaching very experienced counsellors the vocabulary of their lifestyles. I believe you deserve a therapist that understands. If you live differently and want a therapist that can hear you, message or call me.

Professional Credentials

I’ve been in private practice since 12/2018, have two master’s degrees; Educational Leadership and Clinical Mental Health Counseling for which I hold multiple licenses. I’m currently shopping Ph. D .programs because I’m a slow learner who’s a glutton for punishment and love academic debt.

While advocating for and attempting to meet needs in struggling communities I started after school clubs for STEM, an Anime club serving as an underground Gay Student Alliance, facilitating groups at an LGBT resource center, and founding the largest polyamorous community in my area.

I’ve also worked in an alternative peer group for young adults in substance abuse, a psychiatric hospital, a long term dual diagnosis substance abuse center, and a crisis hotline.

I use an eclectic, person-centered approach. I simply can’t know what you need, until we work together. Often, but not always, during the first session I’ll listen to you, ask some questions, then listen real hard to your answers. I’ll take the concerns you shared, use my experience to put together a menu of effective treatments, then greet you in session 2 with a menu of options we’ll use together to make a treatment plan custom to you. Common to almost all my work is acknowledging your struggles and highlighting your strengths through the lens of positive psychology.

Lauren “Ren” Reed, LMFT, LPC

Lauren “Ren” Reed (she/they) helps people increase their autonomy and personal power both in and out of relationships. Through a focus on enthusiastic consent, not only for sex, but for relationships and for life, Ren can help clients build a life they want to say “yes” to. She specializes with kink, consensual non-monogamy, the queer community, and religious sexual shame.

For all varieties of sexual minorities including kinksters, LGBTQIA+ folkx, and non-monogamous relationship styles, Ren has spent most of her adult life studying and engaging in these communities. Building a sex-positive and inclusive community is important to Ren as a therapist who is working within her communities.

Many people are leaving dominant or organized religions and discovering the remnants of shame and trauma from their pasts. Ren works with those who want to reduce stigma and shame around their religious upbringings or beliefs. Whether you are wanting to reclaim your religion in a new way that honors your sexual self, find a religion that connects with you, or leave it behind altogether, Ren can help you discover how to embrace sex-positivity and love being in your own skin. Religious shame and religious abuse inhibit us from finding joy in our sexual selves.

For sexual and relationship minorities, this is a place where you can explore and learn about kinks, queer identities, and all kinds of non-traditional lifestyles. You can improve your dynamics or lifestyle, or explore and discover something new that fits who you are. No matter if you are taking your first steps toward a new identity, or have been sexually non-conventional for years, we can reduce shame, and work on all kinds of issues in a safe space where who you are is understood and accepted.
