Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I view terapy as an opportunity to heal, grow and work through the obstacles that prevent you from being real, authentic and happy with your life. We begin with the presenting concern/and or conflict that led you to seek therapy. By exploring your thoughts, feelings and beliefs about yourself, I hope to help you to increase your self-awareness, gain deeper insight and understanding about yourself, and experience greater freedom, self-expression and fulfillment.

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.
