Children, Adolescents and Young Adults

Let’s Walk Together Toward a Brighter Future

Social Worker

Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW)

The LICSW works with clients in a mental health context and makes use of the Social Work brand of tools and skill sets to help clients to overcome struggles they may face in relationships, emotional regulation and specific behaviors. The LICSW uses a strength based approach to help their clients get to the bottom of what is causing their repeated patterns and limiting beliefs. By working to free clients of self-imposed barriers to success, the LICSW encourages, teaches, helps their clients build skills toward self-sufficiency and self-confidence. Some Licensed Independent Clinical Social Workers will choose to refine their talents further by working with specific groups such as adolescents or the elderly.

Paulette A. Marino LCSW

About Me

My name is Paulette Marino.  I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker specializing in working with children, adolescents and young adults - ages 5 - 25.  For the past 20+ years I have worked in a number of different settings providing counseling services to mostly children ages 5 - 12.  The majority of that time was in the public school setting. 

I ended my 15 years in the public schools in June 2022 and started Caya Therapeutic Services, LLC. I am excited to work with young adults again and to work in my own setting.

I have a Master’s degree in the Management of Human Service Agencies from Brandeis University - The Florence Heller School and a Masters in Social Work (MSW) from Boston University.

My Specialties


Anxiety is normal. It’s a function that we all have. However, it can be overwhelming at times and prevent you from living your life.


It’s okay to feel sad, that’s normal. Although depression can feel like a weight that prevents you from accomplishing daily tasks, it can go on for a while before that weight is lifted. Depression on a surface level is a persistent depressed mood or loss of interest in activities that you typically enjoy.


Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder is a chronic condition. Those with ADHD are typically more impulsive and have limited attention. However, these symptoms can be managed with medication and talk therapy.


Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a condition where an individual is recovering from a terrifying event. People can experience nightmares or unwanted memories of the event. However, symptoms can be managed with trauma-focused psychotherapy and medication.
