Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have a passion for helping people find emotional and spiritual wholeness. My approach integrates biblical truths and solid psychological principles. My experience includes working with children, families, individuals and couples.

I provide individual therapy – relating to issues with anxiety, depression, abuses, physical or emotional, conflict resolution, anger management and self esteem.

Premarital, Marital, and Couple therapy including preparing couples for marriage and addressing children on their home issues and with school problems. I can help the parents better understand their children with parenting direction for making the home a safe haven.

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.
