About Dulcinea Alex Pitagora
Hi! I'm Dr. Dulcinea Alex Pitagora, and this is the team page for my psychotherapy and sex therapy practice at Manhattan Alternative Wellness Collective. I am proudly out as a member of the kink, poly, queer, and trans/non-binary communities, and also as a former sex worker; the identities you see below combine mine and some of my team's. We offer affirming psychotherapy and sex therapy for individuals, couples, multiple-partner relationships, and poly/leather/chosen families, and specialize in working with folks in the BDSM, non-monogamous, trans/non-binary, LGBQIA+, and sex work communities.

I strive to create a therapeutic space where you will not be pathologized, where your strengths will be recognized, and your vulnerability kept safe. I hope our work together helps you navigate life changes, gain insight into frustrating patterns of behavior, improve relationships in your life, and/or explore and heal from trauma. I have expertise in DBT and draw from anti-oppressive and liberatory therapeutic approaches to uplift the expertise my clients bring to the work.

I strive to create a therapeutic space where you will not be pathologized, where your strengths will be recognized, and your vulnerability kept safe. I hope that our work together might help you navigate life changes, gain insight into frustrating patterns of behavior, improve relationships in your life, and/or explore and heal from trauma. DBT and mindfulness inform my approach to relationship counseling. In relationship counseling I invite partners to come together to learn skills to mitigate conflict, tolerate distress, communicate, and attune to each other.

As a psychotherapist-in-training offering short-term therapy, I hope to support you on your journey of exploration and self-discovery by creating a therapeutic atmosphere of safety, acceptance, and curiosity. I specialize in issues related to sex/intimacy, sexuality, alternative lifestyles/relationships (open/poly/non-monogamous), kink/BDSM, sexual shame, or sexual abuse/trauma. My practice is grounded in feminist, multicultural, anti-oppression, and anti-capitalist frameworks. You are the expert on your life and therapy will be guided by your life goals and techniques that resonate with you.
