Megan Kram, LCSW, LAC
Mental Wellness and Addictions Therapist
Hi, I’m Callie! I am Megan’s dog. I love going to work with her and meeting her clients. I’m a therapy dog which means I get to be in sessions with you if you want me there. You can pet me! Even though I’ve been working since 2020, I’ll always be “in-training” because I will never pass two parts of the therapy dog test – I don’t always like other dogs and I love food too much to “leave it” when I am told. But I passed the rest of the test and like people and especially groups. Hope to meet you soon!
