Since 2013 I have served as the school social worker for Garden City Middle School. My background includes a bachelors and masters degree in social work from Stony Brook University as well as a New York State License as a Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).
Prior to working in Garden City I worked for the Hauppauge School District. I also have experience working a private practice setting providing group and individual counseling for children, adults, and families.
As a school social worker I provide a variety of services including, counseling, crisis intervention, and classroom presentations. This includes group and individual counseling for children focusing on socialization, anxiety, bereavement, divorce, and academic difficulties. I am available for consultation regarding mental health concerns and service providers. If you have a concern regarding your child or any questions for me I would be glad to assist you. I can be reached at 478-3020 or by email at BakerK@gcufsd.net.
