Sometimes the way you relate to yourself and others no longer aligns with who you truly are, your values or how you envisioned your life. You may feel disconnected from yourself and others. You may feel anxious or misunderstood, and start to question your worth or love. To cope, you wear a mask to hide parts of yourself, which creates feelings of tension within yourself and with others. What if you lived your life according to your values while accepting and expressing your genuine self? I create a judgement free, safe therapeutic space where you can explore, understand and find your authentic self.

My goal is to decolonize and destigmatize mental health by dismantling power dynamics and opening the floor to voices that are often silenced or may fall upon deaf ears. Our commitment to rest and rejuvenation, care for self and community, and untying the connections between self-worth and labor production are acts of resistance. In my work with clients, I offer a space to honor their authentic voice. You will not have to filter and censor your true thoughts and emotions in our sessions, as you may have previously in other settings. Come as you are, and I will meet you there.

I have focused my work on supporting queer and trans people and people of color. The clients who tend to be the best fit for my clinical approach tend to be people who are looking to be pushed, who want to build self-awareness, and want to change their relationship with their younger selves. They are asking the questions, "Who I am in this world?" or "How do I heal from the violence of the world?" or "How do I do things differently?" They want to build meaningful lives, practice gratitude and mindfulness, and alleviate suffering by offering themselves understanding and self-nurture.

My hope is to cultivate a therapeutic environment that is authentic, empathetic, non-judgmental and filled with compassionate curiosity. I view therapy as a collaborative process that encourages growth, resilience, self-compassion, and empowerment in the areas that are important to you. As an art therapist, I can incorporate the art making process as a restorative tool to increase insight using nonverbal forms of expression and expanding imaginative capabilities within oneself. My desire is to provide a safe space to explore past experiences and traumas while creatively working towards healing and growth.

We all have a purpose in life. However, sometimes this purpose becomes diluted with expectations of others from past and current relationships, systemic factors attached to our social identities, and early traumas that we have yet to face. Therapy is a place where the REAL you can show up without judgment, and where vulnerability is welcomed and embraced with empathy. By creating a safe, yet brave space, my hope is that we can take this journey of “unpacking” together, so that you can live a more authentic life.

I support adults facing anxiety, depression, disturbing memories, grief, break-ups, work-related stress, ADHD, and trauma. I focus on helping all adults, specifically marginalized individuals, to navigate through their life story to identify thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that no longer serve them. I assist clients who want to change these negative beliefs into beliefs that are more valid and useful. Examples include: “I should have done something” to “I did the best I could” or “I am not enough” to “I am okay as I am” or “I am not in control” to “I now have choices” or “I cannot trust anyone” to “I can choose whom to trust".

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.

You deserve to feel better and to see real benefits from therapy. Oftentimes we are looking for insight and tools to help us feel better, but we’re not sure where to look or what to try. Feeling disconnected to yourself or others, worrying too much, feeling stuck or avoiding certain aspects of life can be common experiences but they don’t have to define our lives. Together we will assess your concerns and develop a tailored plan that will help improve your quality of life and yield lasting change.

So, you’re contemplating seeking out therapy. Congratulations, it takes a lot of courage to recognize that there are things you may want to explore, change, and/or better understand about yourself, the way you see others, and/or your environment. Finding a therapist you feel comfortable with and trust can be difficult. Painful life experiences, past trauma and current situations can lead you to feel stuck, depressed and anxious. I believe that we all have areas of our life that warrant closer examination. As your therapist, I aim to create an empathic judgement-free space where we can work together to achieve your goals.

I’m grateful to have this opportunity to connect with you. The therapeutic process is a sacred journey. Here we can share in a safe, non-judgmental place. If we have suffered addiction, anxiety, depression or trauma we can uncover the aspects of ourselves that need healing. The quality of our lives is directly connected to the quality of our relationships - with ourselves and with others. When our relationships are suffering, everything is impacted. For that reason, in our therapy sessions we explore whatever is unfolding in your relationships and we discover how to bring awareness and skill to these crucial connections.
