Anna Kilmer, LPC, CAADC


Anna Kilmer

I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor with over two decades of experience helping people heal. I've lived in several different parts of the U.S. and Brazil, in urban, suburban, and rural settings, in upper middle class and impoverished neighborhoods. I've worked with people ages three through 93, and in a variety of settings including outpatient, intensive outpatient, intensive in-home, residential, and military installations. I was once fluent in Portuguese and Spanish - not so fluent anymore. I'm a straight, white, cisgender woman with two adult children.​


Post-Traumatic Growth and Safety in Connection

I started in this field working with adults suffering from addiction, which naturally led me to become more specialized in trauma treatment. I've worked extensively with trauma survivors from all walks of life, including active duty military personnel, veterans and their families, and immigrants from Latin America, both documented and undocumented. I keep myself educated about multi-cultural norms, shifts, strengths, and needs, and I've always participated in ongoing education and consultation well beyond the requirements of my licensure.


Fundamentally, I believe in post-traumatic growth and safety in connection. My approach is flexible, intuitive, and collaborative. I welcome you as you are. I have advanced training and experience in several evidence based practices including EMDR, group work, and other skills based, experiential, and trauma focused therapies. Nevertheless, I will never consider myself an expert on anybody but myself, and even that's an ongoing work in progress. Mostly, I'm interested in learning about you from you and helping you to help yourself.
