Dulcinea Pitagora, PhD, LCSW, CST
psychotherapist, sex therapist
New York City NY
I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all therapeutic approach, and integrate different methods as each collaboration indicates. I work with those who live openly and out; and those who have more conservative and private lifestyles. I welcome people of every ability, age, gender, national origin, race/ethnicity, religious affiliation, and sexual orientation. As a white anti-racist therapist, I create space for conversations that de/reconstruct whiteness, and cultivate positive racial and intersectional identities.
I have been a member of and mentor in New York City's BDSM and LGBTQ communities for about two decades, and have personally had affirming psychedelic experiences spanning over more than three decades. I hold a Master of Arts (MA) in Psychology, a Master of Social Work (MSW), a Master of Education (MEd) in Human Sexuality, and a Doctoral degree (PhD) in clinical sexology. I'm licensed to practice psychotherapy in New York State (LCSW license # 086704), Washington DC (LICSW license # LC200002083), and Colorado (CSW license # 09928901), and an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist (CST) and CST Supervisor. I offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy in partnership with Journey Clinical; I’ve completed EMDRIA-approved EMDR Basic Training through the Parnell Institute, which specializes in Attachment-Focused EMDR; and I have a private practice in Manhattan. I work with people across the spectrum of power role identification, gender expression, and sexual orientation, as well as those who are unsure of or evolving through identifications.
