Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Patients in my practice are often dealing with some sort of impasse. Depression, anxiety, difficulty in interpersonal relationships, creative blocks, and inability to find some sort of meaning in life are often present. Being stuck in roles that have long outlived their usefulness is another difficult dynamic patients explore. I see people at all stages of the life cycle, with a focus on Jungian Depth Psychotherapy. My background in the arts informs my certifications in sandplay therapy and expressive arts therapy. I am attuned to symbols, images, and dreams as important to the therapy process. www.laurasoble.net

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.
