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.'

We live in a chaotic world. You may feel increasingly more anxious, overwhelmed, or possibly depressed. Life may even feel unmanageable. You might find yourself trying to fill internal voids with external things, such as alcohol, drugs, food, sex, or relationships. Experiences from your past could leave you feeling stuck in your present. Change can be terrifying, and taking that first step may feel impossible. * I became a therapist in Chicago to help others see their worth and start to take ownership of their lives. Despite what that non-stop loop of negative self-talk in your head may tell you, you are good enough just as you are.

Empathy and Focusing are my special skills. You can begin to learn Focusing and other valuable skills in our work together. I studied with Dr. Eugene Gendlin at the University of Chicago. Everyone, growing up, learns some feelings are "bad." This produces obstacles to accurate perception. I am skillful at helping you find conflict-resolving passages that could remain hidden to you searching alone. With empathy, I work to create a safe environment in which you can explore feelings that may be difficult to approach on your own.
