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.
