Meet Lisa Kramer, MSW, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Certified Life Coach
Certified Mindfulness and Meditation Teacher

I provide personalized and compassionate care to each individual who walks through our doors. After witnessing the transformative impact nature and animals had on my own son, who had a massive stroke, I committed myself to offering this model of healing to others. This profound personal experience has fueled my passion for guiding clients on their own healing journeys, with a focus on cultivating connections with animals and nature. My wish for you is that you also find healing in the presence of nature and animals.
