About Three Arms

harriette-2Harriette S. McDonough, L.C.S.W., DCEP, ACP-EFT holds a NYS Licensed Master of Social Work from Adelphi University and a B.A. in Education from Denver University and has earned Diplomate of Comprehensive Energy Psychology (DCEP) and ACP- EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique®) post graduate certifications from the Association of Comprehensive Energy Psychology as well as being an advanced practitioner in many energy balancing approaches. In 2007, she opened her private practice, Three Arms: Energy Balancing in Garden City, NY where Harriette works with children, adolescent, young adults and adults.

Harriette uses a variety of cutting edge techniques known as Energy Balancing Techniques (EBT) to complement traditional talk therapy based on her observations that each soul is encoded with life lessons, gifts, talents, and healing designed specifically for that individual. This combination of traditional and EBT therapy creates a holistic-based psychotherapy setting to facilitate and reactivate the client’s natural ability to restore balance, calm and well-being into their emotional, physical and spiritual systems while clearing obstacles such as addictive behavior, limiting beliefs, ancestral wounds, trauma, fear and self- sabotaging behavior.


Harriette is passionate to teach clients how to appreciate the wisdom and opportunities of their challenging life lessons so that their free-will strengthens and they can align with their soul’s purpose to express their own heart’s intelligence. She is also committed to teaching her clients strategies to maintain their energy balance in their daily lives.

From her 30 year experience practicing Transcendental Meditation and Reiki (hands-on healing) Harriette believes that our natural state of being is one of peace, trust and inner guidance. Life experiences and life stressors challenge this natural state. Most of us are trained away from our inner guidance at an early age by well-meaning adults in our lives. Harriette has seen how some disorders – which do not contain medical issues – hold elements that represent a fundamental derailment from one’s own inner voice and soul guidance.

In addition to the DCEP certification, Harriette is certified by Tina and Gary Craig in Emotional Freedom Technique®, certified Soul Detective® Practitioner and first Teacher Trainer of Soul Detective®, a Master in Usui Reiki®, an Advanced Practitioner in Karuna Reiki®, a Master/Instructor in Integrated Energy Therapy®, an Advanced Facilitator in Psych-K®, a Practitioner in Acutonics® Level 1, Crystal Bowl Sound Therapy, Vibroacoustics Nexneuro SMART Mat® facilitator, Aura Soma® Practitioner, Biogenesis® Healing Tools and Angelic Shaman trained by Kerry Henwood.

Over the years, Harriette has taught and lectured how to incorporate Energy Psychology Techniques in a variety of venues, empowering individuals, and facilitators on how to deal with stress and other various disorders. Harriette has presented “Energy Psychology – Techniques for Reducing Stress: Emotional Freedom Technique” to the staff of the Nassau County Coalition against Domestic Violence/The Coalition against Child Abuse and Neglect. She also presented the workshop, “Introduction to Energy Psychology” for Psychotherapists in Garden City, NY. At the Fieldston Private School, Bronx, NY, during and Alternative Learning Period, Harriette presented “Energy Psychology and Emotional Freedom Technique.” Most recently, Harriette spoke at Grand Rounds for the Psychiatry Department at the Flushing Hospital, in Queens, New York to introduce the principles of energy psychology to staff there.

Harriette also offers monthly guided meditations and mindfulness meditations at her office in Garden, City NY.

Client Testimonials
After just one treatment I felt like I was walking on air! I could do anything I put my mind to! Being able to go back to her treatments in my mind and meditate has helped me countless times when I am feeling stressed.
High school girl who came for sessions between ages of 16 and 17
I did more of what others wanted than what I thought was right. The more I went to Harriette the more I listened to myself and decided to do what I thought was right and made me happy. Also, I learned that I could still be fun without drinking and that my true friends would stick by my side. So what I basically learned was that the more I listened to myself and inner guidance the happier and more self-confident I would be.
