Kristeen Rocha is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker at New England Wellness Collaborative in Providence and Hope Valley, RI. She has expertise in autism, developmental disabilities, parenting support, anxiety, and trauma.

Kristeen is particularly passionate about working with children on the autism spectrum and is certified in Floor Time psychotherapy, an interactive approach which helps parents learn to engage with their children on their level in order to maximize strengths. She has worked extensively with children having developmental disabilities and their families across diverse clinical settings. She works closely with each child and their parents in providing support around developing social skills, navigating family interactions, and managing sensory difficulties.

In her private practice, she strives to create an open, empathetic environment that is sensitive to the needs of her clients and conducive to facilitating meaningful change.

Message to clients

I hope to provide families support when the day to day issues for you and your children become overwhelming. I utilize sensory strategies to help regulate children so they can develop skills to strengthen their ability to cope.
