Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I help adults, adolescents, and couples experience life more deeply; enjoy more satisfying relationships; resolve painful conflicts; and improve self-esteem, self-worth and emotional well-being.

I have a general private practice and specialize in anxiety, depression, addiction, relationships, and grief. I also help people prepare for big life changes and transitions (such as marriage, the birth or adoption of a child, starting college, adjusting to a new move, career change, etc.).

I aim for a reduction in a client's current symptoms, and provide an opportunity to address the broader and potentially more enduring changes in life roles and behaviors. This can require balanced attention to the importance of past events as well as the here and now.

My approach is collaborative, interactive, and supportive. I emphasize the growth and process of the client-therapist relationship by creating a safe, confidential, respectful and healing interpersonal environment.

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.
