Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
When working with your family, I recognize that I am working with a “unique group” made up of “unique individuals.” For this reason I bring attention to the needs that each and everyone of you have as well as the group as a whole. I focus on developing communication techniques(both, listening and speaking), firm but nurturing parenting skills, boundary setting, conflict resolution, and promote family enjoyment while decreasing stressors.

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.
