Meet The Timberline Knolls Staff

Threasa “Tee” Kluever, MSW

Alumnae Coordinator

Tee Kluever has more than 10 years of experience in the mental health field. She is an alumna of Timberline Knolls in her own recovery.  Her passion to live out TK’s mission in her work is driven by her own experience as a past resident and her many years of recovery since then.

Tee brings compassion and understanding that is uniquely evident by the joyfulness, strength and hope she readily shares with those around her.  She wholeheartedly believes through the holistic approach with skilled therapeutic interventions, a strong support system and a power much greater than themselves to surrender to, a meaningful life in recovery is possible for all the individuals we treat.

Tee earned her Bachelor of Social Work and Master of Social Work from Aurora University.  Her work history has centered on both the clinical level of care and administrative work.  She brings lenses from both these areas to her work at TK, with the vision to mesh the two together and grow the alumnae community.

When Tee is not working you can find her anywhere that dogs are allowed with her small pup, Sir Winston, writing about mental health, recovery and other tough topics or eating brunch anywhere there is patio dining.

Back to All Staff

Reflecting back, I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since my first stay at TK. I walked in unsure, frightened and hopeless. 12 weeks later, I walked away carrying hope that the staff and fellow patients instilled in me. The hope started to dwindle and this process repeated itself 3 more times. However, each time I discharged I walked away with news skills (thanks DBT), more sass and grew as a person with each stay.

I discharged from TK for the last time in April of 2017. I wasn’t fixed, frankly some days I didn’t even feel “better” but I was alive. I owed that to TK, especially the staff on Maple. I was truly blessed to be supported and loved by the staff. Our conversations were filled with sass and support, what more could I want?!

Okay, the part we’ve been waiting for. I’m currently 9 months into solid recovery. I can truly say I’m not just surviving, I’m thriving. In March I started TMS treatment at an outpatient level and have had incredible, life changing results. This treatment, mixed with the skills and support of TK I’m back in school finishing my bachelors in psychology and moving on to get my masters of social work.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I cannot express my gratitude enough for the staff who never gave up on me. I was hardy easy to deal with but was ALWAYS treated with respect and love. You guys are life changers and role models. My life is better because of the advice y’all have given me.

With much love,

– Kaitlyn
