Welcome to my team page! I’m so pleased to be sharing my office with sex positive, all gender and lifestyle affirming therapists, and I’m also quite happy to say that that many of them offer lower fee and sliding scale appointments.
Please feel free to reach out to any of us directly to ask about our availability or any other questions you may have.
Dulcinea Pitagora, PhD, LCSW, CST
I supervise the therapists listed below, who have weekday and weekend morning, afternoon, and evening office hours, and offer lower fee sliding scale appointments. I curate the colleagues I work with to reflect my practice ethics, and many of the colleagues on my team are personally connected to the communities we work with. They practice under my supervision, meaning that they follow my practice model and have access to my expertise, experience, and guidance. While I and the rest of the team do not accept insurance, we can provide receipts with the information needed to submit for out-of-network reimbursement.
Shavon Gaddy-Dalrymple, LMSW
I provide strength-based psychotherapy (group and individual) using treatment modalities such as CBT, Art Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Structural Couple/Family Therapy to those outside and within the LGBTQ/QI 2-S+ spectrum, GNC/Non-Binary, and BDSM/Kink community. I have extensive experience working with individuals who have been diagnosed as Differently-Abled/Special Needs/ASD/Neuroatypical or with an Intellectual and Emotional Disability. I also provide a safe therapeutic treatment space for those who need to vent and heal from racial and ethnic injustice, anti-blackness, the generational effects of colonization, perceived white supremacy, anti-fatness/ fat-phobia, toxic masculinity, cis-heteronormativity, and the patriarchy.
Liam Cudmore, LMSW
I provide therapy to individuals, couples/intimate partners, and families of all kinds, with a focus on alternative sexualities and lifestyles. As a feminist transman, my work is informed by intersectionality and motivated by personal experience with the communities I serve. You’ll find me warm and down to earth, with a strength-based approach that centers your priorities. I seek to support and empower you, as we explore your identities, relationships, and goals, in an affirming environment. I employ a variety of therapeutic modalities, including psychodynamic, CBT, and DBT, to meet your individual needs. Outside of my psychotherapy practice, I coordinate a peer-based substance use support youth program at a queer nonprofit.
Avital Isaacs, LMSW
I practice therapy from a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, and social constructivist lens, and I specialize in serving sex working populations, non-monogamous individuals and couples, and trans and non-binary people. My therapeutic approach is integrated and tailored to an individual's interests and strengths. I believe that all people deserve collaborative, culturally competent care, and I strive to create a warm and non-judgmental environment where people can come as they are. I hold a Bachelor of Arts honors degree in Cinema Studies from Oberlin College and a Master of Social Work honors degree from the Silberman School of Social Work.
Cheyenne Taylor, LMSW
I am a licensed master social worker who believes in the power of collaboration and affirmation when working to achieve one’s goals. I offer a non-judgmental, safe space where self-empowerment is central to the therapeutic process. Using strength-based and holistic therapeutic methods, we will work at a pace that is most comfortable for you to reflect, heal, and be heard. Although my professional and personal experience regarding LGBTQIA, poly/CNM, kink/BDSM, SW, and POC communities informs my practice, I understand the importance of recognizing and acknowledging individuality and personal experience in all its forms.
Chrissandra Andrae, LMSW
I bring a feminist, queer-affirming perspective to my practice of psychotherapy, focusing on non- judgmental, collaborative, and behaviorally-specific interventions. I will work with you to improve functioning, reduce distress, and increase long-term, positive consequences based on your goals and values. I have clinical experience with Bipolar Disorders, Depression, Anxiety & Phobias, Obsessive-Compulsive Behaviors, Trauma, Disordered Eating, Identity Issues/Confusion, Substance Use/Addiction, Borderline Personality Disorder, and Grief/Loss. The interplay between change and acceptance is very important to my clinical orientation; utilizing your strengths, our work will always come from a place of compassion. You are the expert on your life.
Amber Lust, LMSW
I believe that you are the expert of your experiences, and my work is to listen and support you through your journey. I am a licensed master of social work that provides clinical care from a client-centered, strength based perspective, with specializations in impacts of sexual trauma and intimate partner violence. I am LGBTQIA, kink/BDSM, sex work and poly positive, and immigrant/newcomer-affirming. However you identify, or experience(s) you’ve endured, I am here to listen and support you.

Aleksandra Sevruk, LMSW
I believe that making the choice to set out on your therapeutic journey takes great courage. It offers us the opportunity to tap into our inner strength by accessing our innate skills or creating new ones to help us become unstuck from the suffering we may have endured for so long. I offer a holistic, strengths- based and non-judgmental psychotherapeutic approach to psychotherapy that affirms the spectrum of human identity, sexuality, relationship, and spirituality preferences that is informed by my personal involvement in CNM/ENM and queer communities. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, and trauma related issues. Although I use an eclectic approach, I have been trained in CBT, CPT, Seeking Safety, Interpersonal Therapy, and recently in EMDR.
Tarynn Dier, LMSW
My role is to support clients as I help them tap into their inter reservoirs of strength and resilience. I can help you develop greater clarity and insight into what may be creating stress into your life and provide you with tools for healing and fulfillment. We can work together to relive feelings of hurt and distress, remove obstacles to personal growth and find solutions as well as new ways to navigate your emotions, your world and the challenges of every day life. I use evidence based therapeutic techniques to deliver a service that is meaningful and specific to your personal needs and goals. What ever you are struggling with or looking to achieve, I am here to listen and to help. Transforming minds, healing hearts, finding balance.
