ManhattanAlternative.com is a network of therapeutic service providers in New York City who are sex-positive, affirmative, and have expertise related to issues that kink, poly, consensually non-monogamous, trans, gender non-conforming, and/or LGBQ-identified individuals face. The collaborative was created in 2014 by Dulcinea Pitagora, PhD, LCSW, CST to address the lack of openly affirmative support to the communities they have been a part of and a mentor in for many years. The providers listed on ManhattanAlternative.com believe that individuals with atypical identifications should have access to support without fear of being further stigmatized, or having to waste time, energy, and money educating providers on characteristics of or behaviors related to their preferences and identifications.
Please note that the providers on this site work independently, they are not employed by Manhattan Alternative, and I don’t have access to additional information about them other than what’s listed on their profiles. If you have a question about a provider, it’s best to ask them directly using the email or phone number listed on their profile. If you have a general question about the site, or a question for me specifically, please email me at [email protected], [email protected], or [email protected].
