Tessa Cramer, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Play Therapist

Charlottesville Center for

Play Therapy


Tessa began her counseling path at Boston College where she completed a Master’s

Degree in Counseling Psychology. While there her internship included training in

Cooperative Play Therapy and from that time her love of play therapy blossomed.

Tessa uses the framework of play therapy to enter into kid’s lives and help them

make peace with painful and scary emotions arising from anxiety, depression,

trauma, and difficult life transitions. Tessa is also skilled in working with families

and individuals of all ages to help support the healing process.

Tessa has worked with clients in a variety of settings as both a practitioner and a

supervisor. This breadth of experience has shown her that every person’s path to

healing is unique and also shown her how to adapt her style and interventions to

give her clients the support they need to find their healing path, however it looks.

Tessa finds joy in combining her experience and training to support her clients on

their journey towards health and happiness.
