Jared Kilmer Therapist Bio

About Jared Kilmer, PhD

I deeply value the chance to speak candidly with others, to see and be seen. In a context of trust, where both parties are free of fear of the other’s reaction, genuine communication is a powerful and aligning force. I strive to maintain transparency in our work together to create a collaborative environment that enables the free exchange of thoughts and feelings. As we work together to meet your goals, you can expect my compassion, flexibility, and commitment. I am personally and professionally familiar with the value of geek and gaming culture and am competent to incorporate it into therapy when appropriate.

I am a licensed psychologist with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I have focused my career on delivering empirically supported treatments. My prevailing therapeutic orientation is cognitive-behavioral, flexibly integrating diverse interventions (e.g., mindfulness, values, and strengths-based approaches) to accommodate your individual needs.

I ascribe to the importance of common factors (e.g., authenticity, positive regard, and a strong working alliance) in therapy. When working with children and adolescents, I will incorporate a family systems approach tailored to the developmental level of each child. I invite you to reach out to me to learn more and ensure that we’re a good fit.
