Kyla H. Winlow, LCSW
You found your way here for a reason.
You might be seeking support, searching for tools to help you de-stress, looking for a safe space to explore your identity, needing to process your emotions regarding the state of our current world, or maybe you're not quite sure what you're needing yet but something has to change.
Whatever the reason, I am here to help.
I know it can be difficult to reach out for help and I strongly believe it is a sign of strength to be ready to take that step. And you aren't alone-we all need support in our lives.
As a queer therapist, I am passionate about offering services for the LGBTQ+ community. I work with folks looking to discuss concerns related to sexual or gender identity as well as folks simply wanting to enter into a therapeutic relationship in a welcoming space with a queer therapist. I am sex positive and welcome clients of sexual, relational, and gender diversity. I am poly/ethical non-monogamy affirming and kink aware. As a white individual, I am committed to doing my own anti-racism work and to unlearning oppressive values and practices.
I am a licensed clinical social worker (licensed in Texas and Florida) as well as a graduate of Dharma Yoga's 200 hour teacher training. In line with my intention to decolonize the practice of yoga, I acknowledge that I am learning and sharing yoga as an outsider: I honor, respect, and give credit to the people and cultures of which it originated.
I am married to a wonderful partner and we are mamas to an adorable, geriatric dachshund. Outside of being a therapist, I love to spend time in nature, read, travel, create art/crafts, eat yummy foods, practice yoga, spend time with the people I love, and try to keep my plants alive.
What will a therapy session with me look like?
Therapy sessions can look many ways, depending on what you are needing! My intention is to provide a space that is warm, authentic, and compassionate to help you work on your goals. I will bring my knowledge, skills, and resources into our sessions while honoring your intuition and wisdom about your needs.
Some of the common goals I help people work towards are:
Decreasing anxiety, stress, and depressive symptoms
Exploring identity (gender, sexuality, relationship structures, etc)
Connecting with your body and your emotions (I often bring yoga into sessions to help with this)
Navigating life transitions
Reconnecting with your intuition and inner wisdom
Validating and normalizing your unique experience & identity
Establishing/enforcing boundaries in your life
Developing coping skills
Releasing trauma (I am trained in EMDR, which is an evidence-based treatment to process trauma and other disturbances by using your brain's ability to heal itself)

Please note that I am not in network with any insurance plans; however, many insurance plans offer out of network benefits. If you choose to utilize your out of network benefits, I can provide you with detailed statements to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Please contact your insurance provider to determine your out of network benefits as they vary between providers and plans. I also accept Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) cards.
I offer a limited number of discounted rates to help make therapy more obtainable and to decrease financial barriers to accessing services. Please contact me to discuss options.
