Myrna Klassen, MA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, #23996


Individual & Couples Therapy

My Goal

My first goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, compassionate and supportive place for you to tell your story and formulate your goals for change. I then walk alongside you during the journey to reach those goals, using a variety of therapeutic approaches and tools depending on your unique needs.

I work with adults on a long list of concerns such as depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, life transitions, and loss.

While I enjoy working with couples at all stages of their relationship, in recent years I have specialized in working with pre-engaged, engaged and early-married couples.


My Background

Until recently, I lived and worked my entire life in San Francisco. My life and work experiences have given me an understanding of diverse cultures that informs my work with individuals and couples of many ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

My experience in working on a church staff and involvement in ministry in India broadens my understanding of concerns of pastors, missionaries, and church staff.

I am married, have two adult sons, a daughter-in-law, and two grandsons.
