    Winter Proginoskes

    Graduate Intern

    My name is Winter (they/them). I am a master’s level intern, working toward a degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. I identify as Queer (transgender, nonbinary, graysexual, bisexual, and polyamorous), fat, white, neurodivergent, and chronically ill and disabled. I am excited to work with members of all ages of the LGBTQ community, especially transgender clients, as well as those who have experienced complex trauma or medical trauma, and those navigating life with disability and/or chronic illness. 

    Have you ever expressed yourself by saying “part of me feels this way and part of me feels another way?” I draw from Internal Family Systems therapy, as well as motivational interviewing, to help the parts of you connect, communicate, and heal. I believe everyone has a rich internal world, and that all of your parts are seeking to do their best for your ultimate good. As an artist, musician, poet, and writer, I use creative expressions to build self-compassion, self-awareness, and resilience. I approach therapy from a trauma-informed client-centered viewpoint. Therapy is a non-judgmental space for you to be you. It is courageous and brave to enter into therapy, and I encourage you to take that step. I want to partner with you on your journey with empathy, genuineness, and unconditional positive regard. 

    I am a huge animal lover, and I spend most of my time with my two dogs, one cat, and three snakes. I have a large houseplant collection and try to make my home feel as connected with nature as possible. I enjoy walking in the woods and on the shores of Puget Sound.
