Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I enjoy working with a diverse clientele with diverse issues, from the stress of work and home to the stress of positive life changes. Often, learning to understand each other's operating systems -- you're a Mac and they're a PC -- helps improve situations immensely! So, whether you are seeking short-term, solution-focussed counseling or a deeper focus on issues of long-term, please feel free to call or email me to chat to see if we are a fit. If not, perhaps I can recommend another therapist better suited to your needs.

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.
