Hi, I'm Kim Garner
Mental Health Consultant
Kim Garner, Mental Health Consultant, joined JPA in January 2022. She graduated from Erikson Institute with a Master of Child Development (2015) and Master of Social Work (2018). Kim is responsible for providing school-based Mental Health Consultation through our C2K program.
Prior to joining JPA, Kim was an Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant in South Suburban Cook County and an Early Interventionist with the State of Illinois’ Early Intervention Program. Kim has two sons, Justin & Kaleb, and enjoys doing arts and crafts, interior design, and shopping, and is a big sports fanatic.
Kim is All in for Kids because "supporting children, their families and school staff using a comprehensive developmental, diversity, equity, inclusion and trauma-informed lens is an asset that will remain evident in my professional practices; as they have for my many years of dedicated work in teaching, providing therapeutic services and mental health consultation to improve developmental outcomes in young children, empower families and support educators to bolster their child’s or student’s progress."
