Wellness Center Staff
Bev Klaiber, LMFT
Wellness Center Director
I received my Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy from Azusa Pacific University in 1992 and have been licensed in California since 1995. We moved to Redding from Southern California over 25 years ago. During that time, I have worked in Child Welfare, Private Practice, and have taught classes and worked in the Wellness Center at Simpson University since 1997.
I have been married since 1989 and was blessed to raise three awesome boys, now men.
For me, therapy is not necessarily about the removal of suffering, but is an opportunity to grow, learn and change in spite of – and because of - our sufferings. It is through the safety of the counseling relationship that we explore painful experiences in order to find meaning and hope. It is sharing our stories and seeking solutions. It is about helping facilitate each client's unique personal journey toward achieving greater understanding, competence and maturity in the most vital aspects of our lives – relationship to self, others and God.
It is truly a privilege to have the opportunity to help someone restore to themselves some of what the events of life may have stolen from them. To help them find purpose in their pain and discover hope in their healing is really a gift that I am humbled to take part in.
Though I have dealt with a wide variety of issues in counseling over the years, I would have to say that there are a few areas that I work with most often. They are:
- Sexual Abuse
- Eating Disorders
- Relationship Conflicts
It is my professional passion to participate with others in the growth, healing and maturity that only God, through Christ, brings.
My name is Teri Sabers (Teresa when I am in trouble), and I have worked as an RN in this community for over 35 years. I grew up in San Pedro, Calif., with my parents and eight siblings. After meeting a nurse in the ROP program at my high school who told me I would be a "natural nurse" and insisted I go to nursing school, I immersed myself in nursing at LA County/USC school of nursing, graduating with a diploma in nursing in 1979.
I am married to my husband, Jeff, a talented remodel contractor, and have three grown children. We have developed and built our home ourselves and steward 20 acres of land east of Redding. I love animals and am raising chickens and pygmy goats. I have two little dogs who are my fan club.
I feel so humbly grateful for a chance to care for and serve the Simpson community.
Wellness Center Coordinator
I have been in Higher Ed for over 20 years, serving in various roles. I love working with students and consider it a gift to be able to serve with such a talented staff.
In 2011, God blessed me with the gift of marrying my best friend, David Rice. We moved to Redding in 2017 where David began teaching Biology here at Simpson University. We enjoy getting to know students, walks with our dog Forrest, and kayaking all the lakes in this beautiful area.
We consider it a blessing and a privilege to be a part of the Simpson community and all that God is doing here.
