Professional statement

Karen 'Kay' McGee is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Miami, practicing in the states of Florida and California.

Her clients are creatives, career changers, young professionals and out-of-the box thinkers who struggle with shame, grief, identity, codependency and addiction as well as anger, anxiety and depression. She is also a certified, trauma-informed yoga instructor and mindfulness teacher.

Kay helps clients explore parts of themselves that may have previously been inaccessible or not allowed. She teaches non-violent communication techniques to help her clients unlearn harmful self-talk and establish kind, compassionate internal dialogue as well as enhanced interpersonal communication skills. Utilizing various body-based techniques and meditation strategies, clients work with Kay to manage stress and find balance between the wide range of emotions that are inherently a part of the human experience.

Kay's style is active, engaged, intuitive and nonjudgemental. Her practice philosophy is rooted in relationship.

Kay is committed to supporting the mental health and well-being of the LGBTQIA+ community as well as to the philanthropic support of organizations and causes that promote the public good, ie: racial, economic and social justice. Additionally, Kay offers sliding scale services to clients in need. The flexibility of remote therapy sessions are currently available! She welcomes new clients to join her online practice.


Message to clients

Hello! Thank you for visiting my profile.

Here are a few things you should know about what it's like to work with me: My style is warm, witty, compassionate and forthcoming. I value transparency, kindness, humor, justice and joy. I'm directive when called for and I like to challenge my clients to go deep. I believe in the human capacity to heal via restored relationship to the Self. I utilize somatic or body-based interventions in conjunction with talk therapy.

I'll teach you how to access and trust your intuition, hone your innate creativity and embody the wisdom already within you. Together we will co-create a personalized plan for your well-being.

If that sounds intriguing, give me a call to set up a free 20 minute consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
