We are pleased to welcome Marisa Soch, LICSW, to the practice to serve the youngest Rhode Islanders. Marisa currently has appointments available for children and preteens. To schedule, contact us or visit www.wildertherapy.com for more information.
Marisa received her Masters in Social Work from Boston University. She also holds a Masters of Criminal Justice from Northeastern University. She has extensive experience working in school environments, community mental health, sexual abuse programs.
Marisa‘s primary clinical focus is working with children and their families.
In her own words:
“Our children possess individual strengths in coping with challenges. Occasionally, they may need some extra support. Therapy can be a wonderful gift for your child. The support and skills available in therapy can help children negotiate many issues. I have worked with children and families since 2001 and have been in the role of therapist since 2009. I am honored to witness children’s strengths, capacity, and resilience in navigating all sorts of challenges. By using play therapy in a non-threatening, engaging environment, I connect with children’s natural abilities through the “language” in which they are experts – play.
I have experience working with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, grief and loss, attention difficulties, life transitions, trauma and abuse, and school or peer related issues. I work closely with caregivers through the structured modality of child-centered therapy or through individual coaching sessions to help your child be more successful.”
