Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
When life feels so overwhelming that you don't know what to do or where to turn, reaching out for support can be helpful. Working closely with a therapist creates a supportive and collaborative environment that can enable you to change how you feel or respond to situations. Together, we can focus on your strengths, identify areas you want to change and help you make choices that give you a greater sense of fulfillment and wellbeing in your life. I work in an manner individually tailored to you, your needs, and your goals, starting with a free office consultation designed to let you know what it would be like to work together as well as provide me with the opportunity to get to know you and gauge your needs. If you're feeling apprehensive about starting therapy, please call or email me. I welcome the opportunity to meet with you, talk about your concerns, and begin creating an environment where you feel relaxed and comfortable. Together, we can discover and help to achieve what is truly important to you.

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.
