Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Life is full of challenges and struggles that can sometimes leave us searching for answers, feeling overwhelmed, stressed out, anxious, depressed, or even ill. Our general well-being can be profoundly affected and often times, our most important relationships also suffer. I can be of guidance and support for you, your family, or a loved one during difficult times or life transitions. Working collaboratively, we can learn effective coping skills, discover new perspectives, and gain a greater sense of hope, aliveness, and freedom. I work with with a variety of individuals, couples, and families which include children, teens, parents, young adults, and adults. I specialize in treating issues related to parent and child/teen relationships, depressions, anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), addictions, grief and loss, and life transitions. I emphasize a collaborative approach and so your input, engagement, and goals are important to the therapeutic process. I hope to sensitively and compassionately support and challenge you as you engage in your unique process of growth, discovery, and change.

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.
