Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
One of the best things about doing therapy (as well as clinical supervision) is to be a part of a person's growth and development. I work from a strength based model, building on your "best" self while also identifying barriers to change and working through them. I find that people learn differently, and adjust my approach based on what works best for you.

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.
