David Schulkin, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Cruz
I am an experienced therapist who has the natural ability to make almost anybody feel comfortable. I have an approachable, compassionate and relaxed personal style that fits well with people of all ages, from teenage to adult. I am also a good fit for someone looking for a gentle male presence.
I view myself as an experienced guide, walking in my client's world to understand and support you to move in the directions you want to go. We will work together to discover insights, often by shining a light on solutions you may already have.
I also offer walking therapy for people who want to walk in nature and physically move somewhere while while psychologically moving somewhere.
