Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
EXPERIENCED: I have counseled individuals and families through a variety of Sacramento Valley agencies since 1980. Licensed for independent practice since 1987.

CARING: I know what it's like to struggle with life problems, yet also know what it's like to make a good marriage and raise wonderful children. I care about a fellow human being's life problems.

PROFESSIONAL: I'm a member of two professional associations and keep my skills and knowledge about psychotherapy current. My experience comes from a variety of difficult settings: domestic violence center, 24-hour crisis hotline, managed care clinic, sexual abuse treatment program, alcoholism program, inpatient hospital.

VERSATILE: I adapt my approach to fit a client's problems and personality. We work as a team, to connect an individual to the inner resources of his soul, and to the outer resources of family or community.

PRACTICAL: SOMETIMES YOU JUST NEED A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON THE PROBLEM.

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.
