“Couples are not the Titanic. They are more like rowboats. With good therapy, they can re-right themselves whenever the need.”




For the past 25 years, Sunny Shulkin, LCSW, M.Ed., has been a leader in the art of relating. She counsels individuals, couples and other therapists in her private practice.  Amongst a select group, she was named a Master Therapist of Imago Relationship Therapy.  Sunny studied with Harville Hendrix, P.HD., author of the groundbreaking Getting the Love You Want. She also trained extensively with Stephen Gilligan, Ph.D., a protégé of Milton Erickson, M.D., founder of Ericksonian Hypnotherapy.

  • Antioch College, Masters of Educational Psychology

  • The University of Pennsylvania, Bachelor Of Science


Sunny helps couples move beyond hurt and blame to a new place of safety and connection. Each person in the relationship will develop skills and insights to heal and grow beyond the emotional pain they carry.

Sunny also works with individuals. As an Ericksonian Hypnotherapist, she uses trance to help clients increase their sense of well-being, reduce depression (either pain related or not), and alleviate anxiety. Hypnotherapy induces a trance state that bypasses the conscious mind and activates the brilliant unconscious.
