Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
We can come to life more fully by using the energy generated by emotions rather than allowing ourselves to be driven or overwhelmed by that energy. Toward that end, I work with Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, influenced by Jon Kabat-Zinn’s model for Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Emotional Intelligence. I work with my clients to help them overcome the barriers that have been constructed in their lives by perceptions of life colored by fear, doubt, anger, loneliness, trauma, depression and/or anxiety. It is not necessarily the events in our lives that trouble us, but rather, our thoughts about them.

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.
