Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
All of your experience from conception to this point in time is stored in the cells of your body. Somatic (body-centered) psychotherapy incorporates the wisdom of the body as well as the thinking mind. Cutting edge somatic psychotherapeutic modalities such as Hakomi, EMDR, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy all tap the latest discoveries in neuro-science to facilitate your natural healing capacity. Each of these methods incorporates present moment mindfulness as part of the process and are effective in working with trauma (big & little) of all kinds (PTSD, relational, developmental, life transitions, etc) as well as other challenging issues. Somatic psychotherapies are also effective at uncovering core beliefs that are keeping you stuck and from living life more joyfully. They are tools to assist you in integrating healthy, positive experiences. I am a somatically-trained psychotherapist certified in Hakomi, EMDR and body-centered life & relationship coaching. I am also trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, addictions, attachment and parenting issues. My practice of psychotherapy is deeply influenced by my yoga and meditation practice of over 25 years. I believe in each being's innate capacity to move towards healing and wholeness.

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.
