Bat-Ami Klejner, MFT

Thank you for viewing my profile. I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist and have over 15 years of experience working in the Bay Area with children, adolescents and adults in a variety of settings.

My style is interactive, empathic and challenging. I believe the best therapeutic work occurs when there is a good match between therapist and client. I will listen to you, ask lots of questions and work with you to set realistic therapeutic goals. During our sessions, I will give you suggestions and provide you with tools to achieve those goals. I use a combination of theories and methodologies to create a comprehensive plan that is uniquely tailored to your needs. I believe in a team approach and use coaching, education, and support as some tools to help people move on with their lives.

Areas of particular interest:

  • Adolescents and transition to adulthood issues: academic performance, social life, family life.
  • Parenting issues: behavior problems, divorce, single parents, blended families.
  • Older adults: depression, anxiety and redefining life.
  • Relationships: couples and families.
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders: effects on marriage, siblings and family.
  • Stress management: work-life balance.


I am bilingual English-Spanish and offer a FREE 30 MINUTE PHONE CONSULTATION to help determine if my services may be of help to you. I see clients in two locations: Palo Alto and Redwood City.
