I’m so glad you stopped by!
Many of our therapists have full-fee and/or sliding scale openings or a wait list. Dr. Pitagora currently does not have any openings, but may have a full fee opening before the end of the year, and often has drop in appointments available for those who’d like one or two sessions for input on a specific topic. (Please note that priority for drop in sessions goes to current or former clients who need to drop in or for those in need of gender affirming surgery letters; and drop in appointments are not advised for those who would be better served by consistent, ongoing appointments.)
If you’d like to work with one of us, please click one of the waiting list form links below (according to whichever makes the most sense for your financial situation) to be notified when someone has an opening. You’re also welcome to contact the therapists on our team directly to ask about their availability (see the team page for their contact info).
To reach Dr. Pitagora directly, please email therapy@DulcineaPitagora.com or DAPitagora@protonmail.com (both emails are routed through ProtonMail), or one of the forms on this page. Please avoid including protected health information (i.e., “individually identifiable health information”) in communications. Unless you email me from an end-to-end encrypted email address, email should be used only for scheduling, rescheduling, or cancelling appointments. Having said that, both of my emails (therapy@DulcineaPitagora.com and DAPitagora@protonmail.com) are encrypted through ProtonMail; therefore, it is more secure to communicate with me using a ProtonMail email address, or any other email address that is end-to-end encrypted with an open source and standards compliant technology (such as PGP).
Please click here to fill out the sliding scale waiting list and indicate which therapist(s) you’d like to work with, and those with openings will contact you directly.
Those who have multiple marginalized identities (e.g., BIPOC/PGM and/or immigrants with a history of sex work and/or are kink/poly/queer/trans) are encouraged to apply for sliding scale appointments.
Please click here to fill out the subsidizing* waiting list and indicate which therapist(s) you’d like to work with; those with openings will contact you directly.
*If you have the means to pay my full fee or any amount over my or one of my provider’s full fees, please know that you are helping to subsidize appointments for those in our communities who are struggling financially and would benefit from working with a therapist who has our specializations and qualifications.
If you’d like to keep looking while waiting to hear back from us, you might take a look at ManhattanAlternative.com, and set the filters set to any specializations that apply to narrow down your search.
