Dr. Karlene Kilmer


About Karlene

I am from Minnesota, but grew up in Denver and went to undergrad in Boulder. I then left for graduate school in South Carolina and completed my internship in New Mexico where I spent the early years of my career. After staying away from Colorado for about 16 years and missing it, I moved to Colorado Springs in 2010. I now live in the mountains west of Colorado Springs with my two dogs and love it. I also hold degrees in Fine Art and Interior Design and love creating.


I work with adults, specializing in depression and anxiety, PTSD and trauma, personality disorders, women’s issues, and LGBTQ+ issues. I have worked with the military—active duty, Veterans, and their dependents—for many years and am well versed in military culture.

Why work with Karlene?

I am an experienced psychologist interested in helping my clients to make positive changes that improve their quality of life.
