Klein Family Counseling is a growing private practice located in Bartlett, TN that was started by Jeff and Mandy Klein. Jeff is a Lieutenant with the Memphis Police Department and Mandy is a career Social Worker. They are the parents of a very diverse blended family.
After seeing the need in the community for early intervention services they decided to open this practice in hopes that many younger children will get treatment, more families will not feel so defeated, and the community overall will be more successful.

Over the last year we have been blessed with several therapists that share our passion and drive to help our community. Our office space continues to grow with unique and diverse treatment options and services.
