Elizabeth Kilmer Therapist Bio

About Elizabeth Kilmer, PhD

Therapy should be a collaborative process, built on mutual respect, genuineness, and trust. In our work together, I strive to build an authentic therapeutic relationship where we can work together to identify your values, and take actionable steps towards positive change in your life. I strongly believe in the importance of common therapeutic factors, including empathy, authenticity, and clear expectations. I further maintain that any intervention should be utilized in a way that is consistent with your identity and culture, as well as integrate social justice in my approach. Further, as a geek and gamer, I understand the inherent value that personal hobbies, passions, and subcultures can provide. In therapy, I work with clients to identify and leverage these passions for personal growth and resilience. I am a licensed psychologist with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of North Texas. In addition to my training and experience with evidence-based treatments such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), I am a nationally registered Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) provider. 

I work with children (age 8 and above), adolescents, and adults. When working with children and adolescents, I incorporate an approach designed to fit the family system and the developmental level of the individual. As a good fit is instrumental to a successful therapy experience, I encourage you to reach out to me to ask any questions you have and confirm whether I am right for you. 

Dr. Kilmer is not accepting new clients at this time, but would recommend our other Game to Grow clinicians. You can request an appointment with Dr. Elizabeth Kilmer via phone (206-895-5939) or email ().
