Avi Kramer, MSW, LCSW


“We get hurt relationally and can also heal that way. Conflict can open us to deeper connections if we stay with it. As a facilitator in that process, I approach therapy with the aspiration to really listen to different perspectives. These therapeutic relationships have the potential to create a space of understanding, less armoring, and more capacity to manage our challenges.”

Avi’s practice is grounded in relational, person-centered, and trauma-informed techniques. He has worked with relationship distress among adults, adolescents, children, and families, and his approach welcomes frustration and stuckness as well as humor and fun. Avi also has a background in education, writing and editing, meditation, and athletics.
