Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I enjoy working with individuals and families on many issues, to help enhance a positive attitude as we navigate life's twists and turns. My office is warm and welcoming, with toys and a well stocked candy jar to tempt even the most reluctant young visitor.

I am a certified teacher with 12 years experience with all ages from K to college; a veteran of the Canadian Navy; and a USN spouse for 15 years. Issues that involve travel, relocation, behavior/adjustment of children/adolescents, school issues, job changes, immigration, incarceration, parenting, marital stress and other phase of life issues are my specialty. I also specialize in working with first responder and military families, and treat combat and job related trauma. Give me a call and we'll get started!

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.
