Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I help people recover from bad things that have happened to them so that they can get on with their lives. After treatment people often report having no interest in a formerly distressing topic stating "I haven't thought about that" or "it just doesn't matter any more." I use EMDR, Hypnosis, and traditional "talk therapy" and Sensorimotor, which is a somatic therapy

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.
