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.

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.

Perhaps you've always had body image issues or disordered eating, or maybe you're only recently diagnosed, but either way, you can't imagine a life where your thoughts aren't consumed by food, numbers and control.

Sometimes, life’s stressors can hit us hard, rendering us helpless. When this happens, we don’t always act in our best self interest. But, there are ways that we can increase our mental well-being.
