Therapist in Brookline, Massachusetts Samantha Wechsler, LCSW

Samantha Wechsler, LCSW

Samantha Wechsler, LCSW Samantha Wechsler is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Massachusetts who has been practicing since 2021. She has a B.A. from Wesleyan University, an MSW from Boston University School of Social Work, completed field placements at MIT and The Albert & Jessie Danielsen Institute, and is a recipient of a Social Work Grant Award from the Boston Psychoanalytic Society & Institute in 2022. Samantha spent nearly three decades working in the non-profit and public sectors as a facilitator, leader, consultant, and coach before deciding to focus exclusively on clinical, therapeutic work.

She brings a systems perspective to her work with individuals and groups. Samantha offers individual and group psychotherapy grounded in a psychodynamic, relational framework. She seeks to jointly explore the pain, losses, misrecognitions, and traumas that have shaped a person’s approach to life in limiting and self-defeating ways. Samantha believes that the process begins with close engagement, devoted attentiveness, and the development of safety and trust. Her many years of meditation inform her ability to focus, be with, and listen with sustained attention and keen attunement. With a grounding in psychoanalytic practice, she also is available to work with clients who desire a more intensive therapeutic experience, involving two to three sessions per week. She works with people of all races, genders, and sexual orientations.

Outside of work, Samantha enjoys hiking, traveling, reading, dancing, and spending time with family and friends.
