Professional statement

Alexandra Pierotti is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York who specializes in helping individuals work through and overcome issues related to anxiety, trauma, relationships, gender/sexuality and sexual dysfunction. Her clients come from diverse backgrounds, but are all seeking a safe place to explore and address both recent and long-standing issues related to their mental health. Alexandra is also passionate about working with clients who are members of the LGBTQIA+, kink/BDSM, consensual non-monogamy/poly and sex work communities.

Alexandra’s approach is integrative and based upon each client’s individual needs, with the understanding that no single approach is able to encompass every client’s specific journey. Alexandra draws from a range of approaches including psychodynamic, CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing and others. Alexandra is trained in EMDR, and works with its application to a range of issues, including PTSD, complex trauma and chronic pain. Alexandra is trained in sex therapy and works with a range sexual dysfunctions, concerns around desire and intimacy, and the pursuit of a fulfilling and healthy sex life.

Alexandra works to create a non-judgmental and safe space to foster the development of a client-therapist relationship that is the key to any successful therapy. This foundation will allow the space needed to explore and move past prior traumatic and painful experiences, overcome current life stressors and foster personal strengths and growth to empower each client.

Alexandra received her Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Baruch College in 2019. In addition to her experience working in an outpatient setting, she gained clinical experience at the Westchester Behavioral Health Center division of New York Presbyterian Hospital from 2017-2021.


Message to clients

My approach is based on the belief that growth and change cannot take place without a trusting, safe and non-judgmental relationship between the client and therapist. I also believe that no one treatment approach can meet every individual’s need, which is why we will work together to come up with a plan that will help you meet your goals and heal from past and present trauma and stressors. We will work through the negative emotions, behaviors and thoughts that can prevent happiness and fulfillment in your current and future life. I look forward to being a part of your journey of healing.
