Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
The most personal statement I can make about myself as a professional is that I love my work. I find it to be a deeply moving and exciting process that is a privilege for me to be involved in. In my eighteen years of practicing psychotherapy, I have come to have absolute faith in certain things. Here are some of them:
• Solutions can be found.
• We all have the resources we need to create positive change.
• Healing is possible.
• Relationships are doorways to personal growth.
• Believing these things awakens hope, and therapy then becomes a journey with a life of its own.

In the words of Mary Oliver in her poem, “Wild Geese.”
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

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.
