Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you stuck in unhealthy relationship patterns? Are you coping with the stress of life in destructive ways- by bottling up your feelings or acting out through addiction or in toxic relationships? You do not have to struggle alone. During the different stages of our lives, our relationships, and our family life cycle, we can get stuck in certain places. As your therapist we would work together to help you find what you need so that you can move through these stuck places, experience healthier relationships, find hope and be free from destructive behaviors. Ultimately, my goal and hope is that you discover love, freedom and joy. I'm best suited to treat relationship problems, depression, father wounds, men with sexual addiction, and grief/loss issues. I am also a CSAT (Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist) working with people to restore their lives and relationships. I am also a second generation Asian-American who was raised in Southern California. I understand the issues that can come up from the merging of different cultures and understand the complexities of interracial marriages. Please don't hesitate to contact me to set up an appointment. I look forward to meeting you.

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.
