Sonya Shulkin


About Me

My name is Sonya (Sunny) Shulkin, LCSW. After my LCSW, I began extensive training in Couples Work. I spent 10 years with Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., founder of Imago Relationship Therapy. In 1992, he designated me as one of four others to be called a Master. In that capacity, I led workshops for couples and therapists. I specialized in my practice of 35 years in all kinds of relationship issues and welcome you to a connection with me. I can help you better understand your needs and wants and connect to your partner these in a way that you will be heard. Often times, I use the dialogue to enhance listening and validating. I understand that all couples have differences and that frustrations are a natural and useful aspect for healing and growth. I hope to hear from you soon. Sunny

She is great at listening to what we say and gives honest feedback.

Doctor Shulkin was immensely helpful to both my husband, and myself! She gave us the necessary tools and perspective to take on the challenges in our relationship, and come out stronger, together. (Thank you, Doc!)
