About Me

I am a client centered, trauma focused therapist who would love to get to know you and your story. I love being able to help people achieve their goals and heal from their pasts. I got my MSW at Virginia Commonwealth University and now live in Iowa with my family (pets and humans). I currently work in a crisis center full time. I am excited to engage with longer term therapy here at Betterhelp. My specialties include: anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma, and attachment. I am trained in motivational interviewing, EMDR, DBT, CBT, TF-CBT, solutions focused therapy.
In my spare time I enjoy gardening, spending time with my animals and doing odd jobs!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Leah Kramer. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Leah is the most INCREDIBLE therapist. She created such a safe space for me to open up, feel vulnerable and know that I would never be judged. I felt incredibly comfortable sharing details about my life and the struggles I was facing. Leah is perceptive, intelligent and warm and helped me to develop a set of mental tools that I can carry with me the rest of my life. She has helped me work through difficult times in which I thought I could never heal. Thank you for everything, Leah!

The messaging feature of better help has been my favorite. Being able to communicate with my therapist in real time has made a huge difference in the effectiveness of therapy compared to in person therapy.
