Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
How important is it for us to get to know ourselves and learn about our needs and values? I believe we already have all the resources we need to accomplish whatever we want to accomplish in life. There are times though it is very hard to believe. During these hard times when we are struggling with financial, personal, professional or relationship problems we can choose to seek the help of someone who will listen to us with unconditional positive regard, without judgment and will guide us through our inner journey on the path to becoming ourselves.

Most of the time my clients are not sure about what they are looking for. They feel that they need to learn things about themselves. They feel they want support and clarity about certain things in their lives, but they don’t know how to start.

Together we will develop the right treatment plan for you. Focusing on your needs, we will create a safe and healing environment where you can trust your intuitive process and use it for change and growth. You can develop a healthy foundation and get to know yourself better which will make your life more productive and fulfilling.

Featured Therapist 

Karen L. Kleckner, MA
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.
