My name is Matthew Cramer and I'm a psychotherapist and addictions counselor. If you're considering therapy but aren't quite sure, or aren't entirely comfortable opening up to a stranger, then you've come to the right place! Most people who see me have little to no experience with therapists or therapy. Many are uncomfortable asking for help, believing it is a sign of "weakness." Others come from families where "staying strong," and keeping "personal business" in the family was the norm. Whatever their story, they are able to open up to me.

Creating change can feel back breaking, especially when going at it on your own. Seeking a therapist can help you develop insight, and access to the growth that you wish to construct. Working together, we can define change as self-acceptance, improvement or understanding. You deserve trust, respect and compassion from me as your therapist, and it’s my honor to ensure those core values. I have about 15 years’ experience supporting and working with people living with issues of depression, anxiety, stress, time management, perfectionism, procrastination and addiction across a wide variety of settings.

Accepting new/ tele-health clients!! Welcome, simply arriving on this site suggests you have moved forward on your journey to health and wellness. I have been counseling clients for over 20 years and have found that making this initial outreach is often the biggest hurdle. Many of the individuals I work with have experienced depression or anxiety and many have found that substance use, once a form of 'decompression', has in fact compounded their struggle. This does not need to be your 'new' or 'permanant normal.'
