Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Therapy can help you be congruent with the person you feel you are inside, your more authentic self, living life more confidently. It can help you develop your relationships to be more fulfilling and satisfying. Sometimes we need a little help seeing our way through the maze of problems in our lives, as a therapist I'm there to help you see your way through. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques and Mindfulness techniques I help my clients learn skills to make their life less stressful, more meaningful and relationships stronger. I specialize in anger management group therapy and have run groups for several years using Cognitive Behavioral techniques with mindfulness and relaxation skills. I teach my clients how to identify triggers, use mindfulness and relaxation skills to control their reactions and make new, wiser decisions.

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.
