Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I approach therapy from a systems-existentialist perspective--striving to work together with my clients to regain hope, inspiration and direction in their lives. I help them to see their problems/challenges in a meaningful, purposeful way. Personal change then becomes a powerful option rather than a debilitating threat.

I utilize hypnosis at times to support the therapeutic goals of treatment.It is never the only focus of therapy and only used with client consent.

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.
