Both Cheryl and Rose work with adolescents, adults and families from a collaborative, competency-based and client-centered approach.

Cheryl Kliewer, MSW

Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker


I have worked with hundreds of clients since 1992. I will listen to you and treat you with respect, compassion and understanding. I recognize that we all have our own unique goals and obstacles. Often we can learn from the barriers that get in our way. I specialize in depression, anxiety, grief, loss, divorce, trauma, abuse, and self-esteem. I also have extensive experience with adolescents. I will act as an agent to help you reach your goals, manage your problems and balance your life.

My love of teaching and international travel gives me a global perspective. I have taught classes in Introduction to Sociology and Marriage in the Family at RCTC. I am a trained Critical Incident Stress Manager (Mitchell Model.) I obtained my Masters in Social Work from the University of Minnesota. I am also a member of the National Association of Social Workers and a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker.

Rose Kliewer, MS

My clinical interests focus on marital/relationship issues, family, and parenting. I also counsel on individual issues of self-esteem, grief, depression, and divorce. I additionally enjoy coaching people to help them reach their goals. I obtained my Masters in Psychology from Winona State University. I hold a Minnesota license as a Licensed Psychologist.
