WHO ARE WE?

From the beginning of Transformations Counseling Group LCSW, it has been our dream to create a family of kind, caring, compassionate, and empathetic therapists. Who are highly skilled and specialized in the areas we are passionate about.

We have been successful in achieving our dream. We invite you to let our family help you through life’s transitions.

We believe that change is always an opportunity for growth and transformation is the path to unlimited possibilities. Our private practice family of Individual, Couples / Marriage, Family, Teen, and Adolescent counselors/therapists in Suffolk County NY 11787 offer a diversity of counseling / therapy subspecialties.

Additionally, we will coordinate your care with all your providers, such as your physician, psychiatrist, nurse practitioner, acupuncturists, or other complementary healers.

WHAT MAKES TRANSFORMATIONS COUNSELING GROUP DIFFERENT?

Working together for over 12 years, we are one big family. We meet together bi-weekly to discuss the latest research and techniques. Together we review cases and receive input from one another. As a result, you benefit from not one but ten therapists. Because of this, we can provide you with the best possible care.

Sometimes it is hard to go through change alone. It is important to reach out to those who understand and do not pass judgment.

We believe your experiences, strengths, and unique personal qualities are important. As a result, we learn who you are and work together to find out what will work best for you. Our treatment approaches are integrative. We apply mindful, insight-oriented and interpersonal principles. Combining that with cognitive-behavioral strategies, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and other methods to give you the best care possible.

In addition, we offer a variety of on and off-site workshops. Workshops like mindfulness training, stress and anxiety management, and couples workshops. Working together to strengthen and improve your most important relationships and issues.

Most noteworthy, we are a small group of experienced, non-judgmental individual, marriage, and family psychotherapists offering a wide range of mental health services.

Your Transformations Counseling Group, LCSW therapist can help with your life issues. The ones that keep you from the happiness you want and deserve. We provide Individual Couples Marriage Family Teen Adolescent Counseling Therapy to guide you toward building loving and lasting relationships. Whether that relationship is will yourself, family, friends, or significant other.

Christy J. Johnson

Ken Burns with Transformations Counseling group was simply outstanding. His ability to help me understand my feelings behind the emotion has helped me in every aspect of my life. Not just my personal relationships. My time with Ken has allowed me to produce healthier relationships and to understand why I feel the way that I do. Personal reflection and the understanding of what I need, and the ability to express those feelings have been extremely beneficial in every aspect of my life, and Ken helped me achieve that. I could not be more grateful for my time, and could not recommend Ken more for those seeking to understand and grow.

I have been to 3 therapists in my life. That is not to say that I haven’t tried a handful more who were inadequate in some way. Harriette is my third, and to date, the BEST therapist I have seen. For one, she gives feedback and homework and doesn’t ask, “well what do you think.” Seriously, if I knew anything I would not be in therapy. She brings out feelings in me that I didn’t even know I had and always makes me feel like I am talking to a super-smart friend and not someone who is judging me. I have been to other therapist who have made me feel like an idiot or made me feel like they could care less about me, but it is the opposite with Harriette. She is truly, truly amazing and I would recommend her to anyone looking to turn their lives around.

​We were very reluctant and skeptical… Hi Harriette, F and I would like to take this time to thank you again for your advice and genuine assistance with one of the most important steps in life. To be honest, at first we were very reluctant and skeptical in meeting a counselor. After meeting with you, our views had changed. You have brought knowledge and insight to one of the many big steps in life that we will take. You made us feel very comfortable with you and you were very welcoming. We shared our lovely experience with you on healthgrade, giving you five stars! We appreciate the referrals for attorneys. We will be scheduling some time to meet with them. We can’t thank you enough for everything you have done! We look forward to keeping you informed with our journey! Thank you again.. And may you shine always!!

Tremendous support system in my life “I have been seeing Harriette for many years and have experienced amazing growth as an individual and in how I view the world and those around me. She has helped me deal with various issues involving myself and my family with great outcomes. She has been a tremendous support system in my life. Highly recommended!” ​”I first met Harriet 13 years ago when she helped me through the breakup of my marriage…it was a tremendously difficult time for me, and with her help, I was able to get through it and grow stronger. Fast forward 12 years, and we met again after my husband and I experienced a devastating miscarriage. She helped us heal and get through the next nerve-wracking pregnancy that resulted in the birth of our beautiful daughter. I definitely recommend putting your trust in Harriette to get through difficult times.”

​”Would like to leave a note of thanks and support to Ken B. We met Ken 6 months ago and were dealing with some major relationship issues. The work that we did together with Ken’s guidance and support helped us not only deal with the current issue, but have created a great stepping off point for better communication well into the future. We truly believe we could not have done this without Ken’s support and guidance and we are forever grateful. Not only have we learned how to be better life partners, but find ourselves using the tools that Ken offered us with our kids, extended family, friends and in our work lives.”

Jake Oliver

I am an adult survivor of childhood sexual abuse. I’ve spent 2 decades in and out of therapy. Nothing seemed to help until I found EMDR. I finally feel “healed”. Don’t get me wrong, I still have flashbacks and triggers but through EMDR I’ve learned great techniques to deal with them. Thank you to my wonderful EMDR therapist to get me to this point of living and not just surviving.

“ I feel so strongly about how wonderful your practice is. First, My daughter loves her therapist and feels so connected. Her therapist even increased their sessions to 2x a week. Secondly, I love how organized and receptive you are as a practice. Lastly and certainly not least, Lisa is the sweetest, nicest office manager. Thank you so much! “
