Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am an empathetic listener, but more importantly, I am very interactive with lots of questions and feedback. I create a safe environment in which you can do your personal work. Therapy is not only about the one hour you are in my office, but about what you learn and how you apply it in your daily living after you leave my office. Plan to do homework. I am all about change and moving forward. I don’t want you to be in therapy forever rehashing the past. I will help you identify problem areas and help you to see new options and solutions to whatever problems you may be having. I have a 12 step orientation and have been in recovery for 26 years. Spiritual growth is an important part of my path.

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.
