Welcome to our blog! Although over the coming weeks, we’ll be writing about everything from what you can expect when working with Reka, to how you might know you need counseling and other questions about counseling, we thought it may be best to start with a little more information about Reka, the centerpiece of Omaha Counseling today.
Moubareka Kluver, better known as “Reka,” was born and raised in London, England. She started her career as a certified accountant working for a British venture capital firm. She worked as an accountant for nearly ten years until, on sabbatical, she was traveling and met Kris Kluver, now her husband.
In the first few years of her relationship, Reka had a realization that she had things in her own relationship that she needed to work on. Driven by that realization and dissatisfaction with her accounting job, Reka decided to pursue her dream of becoming a couples and family counselor, graduating in 2010 with a Masters in Counseling Psychology and Counselor education with an emphasis in Couples and Family from the University of Colorado, Denver.
To date, Reka has worked with the elderly, the homeless, children with behavioral issues, and more across multiple disciplines including marital and relationship issues, major depression, anxiety, domestic violence, grief, and loss. The work has been primarily in an outpatient setting, and more recently with Lutheran Family Services. In addition to gaining licensure as a Licensed Mental Health Practitioner (LMHP), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner (LIMHP), Reka has life experiences related to the challenges often associated with immigrant professionals, finance and business ownership and infertility.
Reka’s work today is driven by her interest in helping others better themselves and strengthen the relationships that they are in. In her counseling work, she thinks of more than just the couple in question: she starts from the center and also focuses on the family and the broader system in place, because there is more to the couples’ relationship than the couple themselves. With her approach, she has had a great deal of success, and prides herself on her ability to counsel individuals across a wide variety of unique situations.
Reka is launching her own private practice to continue her goal of helping others better their relationships and themselves. If you’d like more information about Reka or Omaha Counseling, feel free to get in touch via Twitter or Facebook. We’d love to answer any questions you may have.
