Degrees and Certifications:
Miss Tara Kilkelly, LMSW
A little bit about me: I am a full-time social worker at Herricks High School, along with Ms. Cestari. I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) and a proud graduate of Stony Brook University, where I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work. I also have a Bachelor’s Degree in Wellness Management, with minors in Psychology and Fine Arts from SUNY Oswego. I have a broad range of experience working in psychiatric inpatient, psychiatric outpatient, private practice, and in nonprofit day treatment settings on Long Island. I am trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I love to incorporate mindfulness and creativity into therapy. At Herricks I provide individual, group, and schoolwide services to our Herricks students. I can also link students and families to helpful resources in the community for additional support. I am here for you!
