About Kenneth Burns

Born and raised on Long Island, I have always possessed the yearning to help others. This desire to help motivated me to return to college as an adult learner and Graduating from Suffolk County Community College’s notable honors program. From there I was accepted to the University of Stony Brook. I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree, and then went on to earn my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the advanced standing master’s program.

My passion and specialty is in working with couples. Whether dating, engaged or married I strive to help people in relationships achieve the highest feeling of happiness they can. Although I specializes in couple’s therapy, I have counseling experience with youth, adolescence, adults and families.


In my approach, I blend both Eastern philosophy and Western theory to give clients a whole person (mind-body-spirit) approach to therapy. I have done extensive study, reading and research in both methodologies. Through lectures, writings, articles and seminars, I continually keeps himself current with the most up-to-date findings in psychology and how neurology, biology and pharmacology affect a person’s psychological well-being.

I have experience and training in Emotional Focused Couples Therapy, Critical Crisis Intervention, Positive Parenting, and ACOA (Adult Children of Alcoholics).  I have practiced case management and has knowledge of NYSARC Trusts.
        
I have proudly volunteered at Response, a twenty-four hour emergency crisis hotline, at the nursing home transition and diversion programs and has organized/administered holiday toy and food drives.

My hobbies include the art of Kung Fu, which I have studied for over the last twenty-four years.  I also enjoys reading, meditating, scuba diving, sailing and spending time with my own blended family.
