Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Having worked in private practice for over 20 years, I am committed to helping individuals, couples and families find the understanding they need to grow, love and live in the healthiest ways possible. My initial goal is to provide a safe, trusting environment in which individuals and couples can learn about themselves and others in new ways and then take the often difficult steps toward changing past patterns. I encourage my clients to be straight, open and honest with me and I do the same in return. I work intuitively in the moment and treat people as individuals with differing needs. I look for the underlying issues that prevent people from changing what isn’t working in their lives. We can only find what we are looking for by choosing to do our lives differently, and we can only make different choices when we become clear that our repetitive patterns, the patterns that get acted out in all of our life situations, aren’t working. Once we see ourselves with awareness and clarity, a whole new world opens up. My practice has been weighted towards working with couples (marital, premarital, gay/lesbian, etc.). I have experience working with issues related to infertility, pregnancy loss, mid-life parenting, and life transitions. I have had advanced training in working with children and adults with ADHD and Autistic Spectrum Disorders. My aim is to facilitate the development of greater awareness, authenticity, acceptance and appreciation.

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.
