Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My non-judgmental and nurturing style enhances my work: improving wellness & health, deepening relationships, and unlocking energy and creativity inorder to find more happiness and be more successful in all pursuits. I am passionate about mind/body health and Interpersonal Neurobiology: the brain, mindfulness, and relationships. With focus and intention, couples and individuals can release old patterns of behavior, improve communication, & appreciate their relationships more. Couples with small children benefit from my understanding of the challenges of staying connected while consciously parenting. My experience as a birth and postpartum doula enhances my work with expectant couples and women (anxiety, depression, fertility, postpartum & prenatal health, grief and loss). I have taught toddlers through teens at private and public schools. I have counseled families & children from pre-k-12 in private, public, and non-public schools (including learning differences & Asperger/Autism) for over ten years and families with developmentally challenged adults. I have led teen and children’s groups including those which focus on social skills. I see some children and teens in my practice. I am an active member of the California Teachers’ Association. Contact me for referrals: I have a large network of community referrals in the Los Angeles area.

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.
