Shelly A Kunker is not currently accepting new clients.
I specialize in working with children, teenagers, and adults who have experienced trauma or grief. Trauma can include a variety of things including physical, emotional, sexual or any other type of abuse, such as being raped or attacked; witnessing or experiencing something terrible such as a car accident or the trauma of combat deployment; the death of a loved one; or many other difficult life experiences. I have also helped numerous members of the LGBTQ community, including those questioning their sexuality and/or gender identity.
I have significant experience with OEF/OIF combat veterans and victims of military sexual trauma (MST), many of whom have been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I have also worked with Child Protection Agencies (CPS) and teenagers involved in the juvenile justice system.
I work with individuals and families from a variety of cultural backgrounds. I have experience treating anger management and addiction to substances including drugs and alcohol, and behaviors such as gambling. I am licensed in California as a Marriage and Family Therapist and hold a Doctorate Degree in Psychology.
