About My Practice

Office Hours
Services
Being a licensed psychotherapist since 1986, I have worked with a broad range of issues. I know that pain and suffering are inevitable in life, but being miserable is optional. With warmth and humor, I am skilled at helping clients make meaning of the suffering, while facilitating and eliciting options that lead out of it. I have grounded experience working in a variety of modalities and I use a blend of therapeutic approaches tailored to your specific needs. I am comfortable working with a wide spectrum of life transitions and issues, as well as couples and individuals of different races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, genders, and ages. I see clients for both brief and long term work. Relationships, sexuality, grief and loss, parenting, life transitions, blended families, adoption and infertility are areas of expertise, as are working with creative and spiritual impasses and helping couples re-ignite diminished sex lives. I have a long history of working with the particular concerns and needs of those in the mental health field and other healing and religious/spiritual professions. I consider myself strength-based, knowing that there are no mistakes except the ones we don't name or learn from.

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.
