Kae Winter, MA
Kae approaches the role of therapist as she approaches her own life: to uphold her ethical responsibility to continuously examine her internal processes and the systems they show up in, in order to show up as “real” as possible with others.
Following a client-centered, trauma-informed, social-justice-oriented and inclusive lens, Kae believes personally and professionally that therapy is advocacy, and from this space offers clients a place to engage with their lives through integrated arts therapeutic approaches.
With experience working within systems of crisis response and advocacy and as a writer/artist having experienced personal traumas, Kae is passionate about the intersections of these worlds as they show up in the individual and collective. Kae brings an offering of safe space to the therapeutic relationship in exploration of parts of self through narrative/storytelling, creative writing, embodiment and drama therapies.
While Kae has worked with many populations and communities during her time as a 911 paramedic, a passionate focus of her mental health work is with those who identify within the LGBTQIA++ community. Kae also is experienced in working with parents and emergency first responders. She has a special interest in working with people in non-traditional family structures, such as single parents by choice.
A sense of safety and space where each individual feels empowered to create or recreate their own stories or the stories they live is every person’s birthright and this is where Kae hopes to meet you.
Due to her status as a pre-licensed clinician, Kae is only able to accept clients with Cigna, Aetna, Optum, United, Harvard Pilgrim, and AllWays insurance, or self-pay.
