Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have diverse experience working with children, families, adults, and couples towards developing more satisfying relationships, patterns, and overall ways of living. My goal is to help you find balance in your life, whether that means working with you and your children to decrease disruptive patterns and develop stronger bonds, working through relationship conflicts, problems from your past, or developing a greater awareness of yourself and ability to live fully in the present. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. We will look at ways you, your children, or your family can take back control of your emotions, decisions, and ways of relating in the present. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or relationship, looking for help with your child or adolescent, or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to discussing how therapy can help you reach your goals.

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.
