Dr. Mulkerne is the very best therapist I have ever had. I've struggled with depression and other mental health issues for my entire life and have seen many therapist. None have shown me the care and compassion that he has shown. He made me comfortable from the very beginning and has helped me more than I can possibly describe. He's been my therapist for a year and half now and I can honestly say that he helped to save my life at a time when I was at my worse. I am still dealing with a lot in my life, but Dr. Mulkerne's guidance and care have helped to prepare me to deal with these challenges in positive ways. He helped me find my inner strength, directed me on how to use it, and continues to support me through my journey. I consider him heaven-sent at a time when I truly needed it the most and will always be grateful for all he's done to help me through some of the darkest times of my life.

E. Middleton – Jan 11, 2021
Dr. Mulkerne answered his phone my first call and worked me in very quickly. When depression or life strikes us, there usually is not time for a month wait for help. He was a great listener and suggested many things which helped me improve my depression and with life in general. Very knowledgeable of mental illness and the symptoms of it. Mental health is a very serious disease of which many of us suffer. Thank you, Dr. Mulkerne for all your help. Life is much better today. M Jones

Thank you for your kind words.
Dr. Mulkerne is very arrogant and unprofessional. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Mulkerne is a rarity amongst his profession. His knowledge enables him to treat patients in a manner that is effective and thorough. I have been seeing him for several months now and not only am I experiencing relief from my debilitating depression, but I am also learning and utilizing coping techniques and methods from my sessions. I would highly recommend his services to anyone, but especially to individuals who feel they have been unable to find an effective psychologist.
