About ManhattanAlternative.com

ManhattanAlternative.com is a network of unaffiliated, independently practicing therapeutic service providers in New York City who are sex-positive, affirmative, and have expertise related to issues faced by kink, poly, consensually non-monogamous, trans, gender non-conforming, and/or LGBQ individuals, as well as those with stigmatized jobs. 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 and lifestyles 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 identities.

Please note that the providers on this site work independently; they are not affiliated with or 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’s services, fees, or anything else, please ask them directly using the email or phone number listed on their profile. If you have a general question about the website, or a question for me about my practice specifically, please email me at contact@ManhattanAlternative.com, therapy@DulcineaPitagora.com, or dapitagora@protonmail.com.
