Klaus Roed

Counselor & Group Leader

For the last 20+ years, I’ve had the privilege to work with teenagers, young adults and families in the areas of ASC (autism spectrum conditions), addictions, family dynamics and mentoring. I’m currently a BSSM student and have recently joined the Transformation Center team.

Before moving to Redding to attend BSSM, I worked for a Christian boarding school for 24 years. Prior to that, I worked at a group home for adolescents.

I help people with different diagnoses find their strength and identify challenges, so that they can function well and thrive in life. My goal is that clients wouldn't look at the diagnosis or at the day they got the diagnosis as “the worst day of their life,” but they could instead get the full measure of joy out of their life and unique abilities. It’s sweet to be able to run with a person who starts having dreams for the future again.

I have a B.S in pedagogy (social work) from the University College of Northern Denmark in Aarhus and have continued my studies at the Kempler Institute of Scandinavia. I’m certified through the Danish Board of Psychotherapists as a family therapist.

I’m from Denmark and have been married for 32 years. We have two grown-up children, a beautiful daughter in law, and two delightful grandchildren. I love challenging myself with endurance sports: biking, mountain biking, swimming, fitness, and climbing. I also love just relaxing in a sauna. I’ve been active in worship in my local church for 30+ years. I also love lattes and homemade baked goods.
