Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I enjoy working with people from all different walks of life, whether they are simply looking to improve a part of themselves, or they have hit a major bump in the road. I actively assist clients who are struggling with relationship-based problems, and I have specialized training and experience in treating sexual assault, parental bereavement (death of a child), and post-traumatic stress. In addition to my licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am also a Certified Sexual Assault Counselor, Certified Trauma Response Specialist, Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress, Board Certified in Bereavement Trauma, and a Diplomate of the National Center for Crisis Management. I believe my clients already possess the answers they need, and I empower them to search for their internal strengths and learn how to use them to overcome their personal challenges. My greatest joy is watching a client reap the benefits of active participation in therapy! As an adjunct to traditional therapy, I also facilitate therapeutic groups, parenting classes, and psycho-educational workshops from time to time. I hope you will give me a call so we can talk in person – I would enjoy having the opportunity to work with 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.
