Feedback & Reviews​

“I worked with Matt for seven years. I learned communicating with my loved ones and with myself in an honest and compassionate way. These days, I am far less heightened and activated throughout my life than before. I’ve learned ways to regulate my anxiety in a way that makes the day-to-day less daunting and exhausting”.

“As an acupuncturist, I often have the need to refer clients to other health care professionals. Matt Cramer is one of the first people who comes to mind when I need to refer to a therapist. His reassuring, gentle, and forthright manner are qualities that give me confidence when sending folks his way.”

“Matt helped me understand the nature of my challenges. He helped me to be easier on myself, reduce my perfectionism and learn to calm down. I learned to speak up for myself in good ways and to reduce ways I over depended on others. This time in therapy was a major turning point for me.”
