Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
You are taking your initial step on a Journey to Empowerment, and I am excited to take this step with you! Being a licensed therapist with over 14 years of experience, I believe having a safe therapeutic haven for each member to express their individual thoughts and feelings is so essential. I work with Individuals and Couples both Heterosexual and Gay/Lesbian lifestyles. I focus directly on helping to create clear goals to bring about result-oriented changes to increase happiness and fulfillment for individuals and couples. I specialize in working with Couples who want to create and maintain a loving, respectful and thriving relationship, as well as assisting with pre-marital counseling. My work with couples have included teaching strategies for improving communication, intimacy building, managing conflicts, reducing stress and strengthening parenting and co-parenting skills. I also counsel Single Women, to help problem solve their various life issues, such as low self-esteem, career stressors and relationship choices. The Family as a whole is an important part of one's life, therefore I counsel all areas such as infertility, adoption issues, blending families, depression, aging issues and grief/death. I also provide appointments on Saturday and Sunday as a convenience for busy life schedules. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you soon.

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.
