About Jill Kramer, MSW, LICSW

Jill KramerMy focus for the past 19 years has always been mental health, although I have 15 years of experience with dual diagnosis treatment
(mental health and chemical use disorders). I have extensive experience working with diverse populations, and it is my personal goal to create a safe therapeutic environment for you regardless of your age, gender, race, sexual orientation or religious affiliation.

``It all started with a bad trip to a therapist back when I was a kid...``

No, really, it did. As a teenager who “struggled,” as we all do, I asked myself what I really needed from a therapist. My answer was clear – empathy and a non-judgmental environment – and I have built my practice on these principles (a little humor doesn’t hurt either). Whether you are battling depression, struggling with addiction, going through a painful loss or need someone to “just listen,” my goal is to provide an environment where you feel valued and heard. Healing is a journey, and sometimes we all need someone to 11walk beside us11 to offer encouragement, support, and some objective – yet caring feedback. You have all the tools you need to achieve your goals for therapy; my role is to help you rediscover those tools and your own personal gift of insight.

Everyone needs a direction, once in a while.
