Hi, I’m Kitty.


Not accepting new patients (except for groups)

Kitty Kloud (she/they)


I know that some therapists don’t provide guidance, sit silently, and wait for clients to initiate. I’m not against that therapy style… but it doesn’t work for certain types of humans, especially neurodiverse ones. I see my role is to keep the golden thread of what it is that you’re here at therapy. If you think you need therapy, but you don’t know “how to therapy”, you can come and see me, and I’ll gently pull you into the space. You may not know what you need to talk about, but don’t worry—I won’t leave you dangling.

I would describe a lot of my clients as “cycle breakers”. Many (but not all) of them are queer people who came out late in life, people in nonnormative relationship structures, divorcés, people with eating disorders, survivors of protest trauma… people who may not know what they want to do in life, but know that they definitely don’t want to do what their parents did. In short, they tend to be people who feel put in a box. 

I’ve found that, for many people, an ADHD or Autism diagnosis can feel like a box, too. This is why I find it super important to talk about your neurotype rather than focus on diagnosis. Think of it this way: everyone has a neurotype, which is much more complex and subjective than a diagnosis. A diagnosis may let you get some support and help, but we might need to pay attention to your neurotype—which may include traits associated with diagnoses whose criteria are not caught up with the humans that live in the world. Neurotypes help us use the best words we have for your unique experience.

The biggest feedback I get is that I’m a working therapist. If you’re ready to do some active work in a space where you feel safe and can be yourself, or if you have no idea where else to begin, I want to help you on your way.

Let’s set up a 15-minute conversation to talk about how to get you to the peace that’s waiting on the other side of your pain.
