Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a therapist in WLA/Santa Monica for over 25 years, I enjoy working with diverse problems and populations. One specialty is working with women in life transitions facing life/self changes, mood disorders, esteem issues, addictions, relationship problems, parenting, and issues in daily living. As an artist I have an understanding of people in creative fields and the challenges they face. My personal and professional experience as a cancer survivor adoptive parent & yoga practitioner and meditator has added to my expertise as a therapist. In addition to individual and couples therapy, I lead women's support groups.I work collaboratively with my clients doing insight work and cognitive behavioral work.to create healthier, more empowering life patterns. I am committed to helping clients gain self knowledge and effective life skills, improve their relationships and create joyous meaningful lives.I am 12 step friendly

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.
