Klein, Beth MS, LCPI
740 Pilgrim Parkway, Suite 103, Elm Grove, WI, 53122
New Journey Counseling
You are valued! And you can have that meaningful and rewarding life that you desire. I am here to help you define what that is and remove the obstacles that are getting in the way. I believe that everyone has the potential to live a meaningful and rewarding life based on their own definition of what that is. I realize that achieving this is not easy but simply moving towards it can be rewarding in itself.
For several years prior to becoming a professional counselor, I worked in a business setting while raising a family as a single parent. This has given me first-hand knowledge of the trials and tribulations of the world of work and creating balance.
My role as your therapist is to first and foremost provide a safe and trusting place for you to grow. A place where you feel genuinely cared about and valued. I will then serve as a springboard for your growth in the areas you identify; providing insight, techniques, and encouragement.
Specialties: Transgender, depression, self-esteem, divorce, parenting, relationships, life-transitions, identity issues

Northgate Taste-Anthony Rupert
9004 West Fairmount Avenue, Apt 102 Milwaukee, WI 53225
YOUR kind of cheesecake. 9" cheesecakes made to order. (Low sugar, sugar-free, raw sugar, vegan and gluten-free cheesecakes available.)

Everyone likes to have a nice slice of cheesecake for dessert after a meal. The trouble is, no one wants to pay the prices. Most places you go to would charge at least $4.00 for a slice of the delicious cake, and about $25.00 for a whole cake. Now, we at Northgate Taste understand that labor and production costs have to be figured in, but we do not see the point in charging much more than necessary. Thus, our prices are lower than our competitors.

Our cheesecakes are prepared with all natural ingredients, and the preparation process never starts until after you order them. Many of our flavors are not listed because we have such a wide variety on hand that there are few flavors we don’t have. If you would like a variety that we do not have on hand after all, we will do our best to make it happen.
