Hi Jessie,

if you're running with Python >= 3.5 you can use PyQt5 instead of PySide. We
have a shim in place that abstracts using either pySide or PyQt5.
There should even be python wheels available of PyQt5 for your system. 

If you cannot use Python 3.5 or later for some reason, I don't see a way other
than installing your own Qt build and getting pySide to use that. Maybe with
homebrew? But I'm no Mac user myself.
