Born and raised on Long Island, Ken Burns has always possessed the yearning to help others. Graduating from Suffolk County Community College's notable honors program, he was accepted to the University of Stony Brook. Graduating summa cum laude with a Bachelors degree, he went on to earn his Masters Degree in Social Work from the advanced standing masters program, also at the University of Stony Brook.

Ken takes a unique approach to therapy blending both Eastern philosophy and Western theory. He has done extensive study, reading and research in both methodologies. He takes a whole person (mind-body-spirit) approach to therapy. Through lectures, writings, articles and seminars, Ken 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.

Although he specializes in couple's therapy, his counseling experience also includes youth, adolescence, adults and families. He has experience and training in Critical Crisis Intervention, Positive Parenting, Emotional Focused Couples Therapy and ACOA (Adult Children of Alcoholics). He has practiced case management and has knowledge of NYSARC Trusts.

Ken has proudly volunteered at Response, a twenty-four hour emergency crisis hotline, nursing home transition and diversion programs and has organized/administered holiday toy and food drives.

Ken's hobbies include the art of Kung Fu, which he has studied over the last twenty-four years. He also enjoys reading, meditating, scuba diving and spending time with his own blended family, including his six year old daughter Madison and three step-children, Ashlyn, Tyler and Miranda.
