Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you finding what works for you? Our “work” is co-created to best meet your needs, your child’s, or your family’s. Approaches I use include strength-based interventions, mindfulness and acceptance, relational body and client-centered therapy focused on developing ways of communication that work for each person or family. Because of my special education background I am able to apply expertise incorporating child development, sensory integration, processing issues, social skills, and play facilitation strategies into our work. This helps you learn how to embed needed practical skills into daily routines.

My experience is wide ranging and includes an Infant-Parent Mental Health Fellowship from Harvard Medical School, in conjunction with Children’s Hospital Boston and Napa County Health and Human Services; a Masters in Counseling from John F. Kennedy University; and a Masters in Education with an emphasis in Special Education from Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo.

Featured Therapist 

Karen L. Kleckner, MA
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.
