Dorthy Baker, LCSW
Dorthy is a Wyoming native and graduated from the University of Wyoming as a hospital lab tech. Dorthy began providing foster care for the State of California when living there and adopted their first child, as well. The family moved to Riverton, Wyoming. Dorthy provided foster care for more than 25 children (in both California and Wyoming), and adopted four children over the years in California and Wyoming. As a natural result of adoption and fostering, Dorthy wanted to know more about child development, attachment problems, and family dysfunction patterns, so she re-enrolled at UW (Casper Campus) in the Social Work program. She earned a second bachelor’s degree in 1993 and began commuting to Denver for graduate school at the University of Denver. She graduated from the University of Denver in June, 1994 with a Master’s Degree in Social Work, with focus on Child, Youth, and Family. She relocated to Lovell in 1995 and has been providing counseling services for Big Horn Basin Counseling since then (25+ years to date). She still enjoys the challenges of family dynamics, attachment disorders, and childhood problems, but also works with persons with various personality disorders, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. She has had clients as young as 2 years old and as old as 94. Dorthy is supportive, practical and behavior-focused to help clients make healthy changes in their daily lives.
