Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My warmth, sense of humor and interactive style encourages and supports your self-exploration, healing and growth. I focus on solutions to help you to develop resources to successfully navigate future life challenges. My work with couples includes Emotionally Focused Therapy (www.iceeft.com), a research based approach with a high success rate. I offer EMDR (emdria.org), an extensively researched and highly effective intervention that has helped over 2 million people find relief from many types of stress. I work with children, teens, couples and families for almost 2 decades, addressing issues related to a range of anxiety and mood disorders, relationships, abuse/trauma, life transitions and substance abuse.

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.
