Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that the major focus of therapy is the creation of a healing environment in which the therapist and client can explore the nature of the clients emotional wounding and what is healing for them. This emphasizes the importance of relational patterns of connection, both past and present and the importance of the therapeutic relationship in the healing process. Relationship is the where the healing takes place.

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.
