Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Everyone encounters challenges and new situations in life. We all want to meet these challenges with confidence, and hope to have acquired the necessary skills along the way to do so. Occasionally, however, we find that the tools that once worked for use no longer do. We may then feel frustrated, unsure of ourselves and have difficulty moving forward. These very challenges, however, help us grow, develop a greater awareness of ourselves and others, and empower us to make good choices. A caring and experienced therapist can help with these challenges.

• Together we can identify self-defeating behavior patterns and replace them with positive solutions.
• With a new self-awareness we can learn effective styles of communication.
• With a new understanding we may enhance our relationships with out loved ones.
• With greater confidence we may seek a more direct and clear path for achieving our goals.
• With enhanced coping skills we will be better able to deal with loss and grief.
• Whatever you needs, we are here to help.

Karen L Kleckner, M.A..

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
