Social Work Trainee
Samantha Wechsler is a Social Work Trainee at the Danielsen Institute and an MSW candidate at Boston University. Samantha offers individual 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, over time, of safety and trust. Her many years of meditation practice and yoga are among her sources for focusing, being with, and listening with keen attunement. She is passionate about the intersection between contemplative practice and social justice, and seeks to integrate the two in ways that contribute to individual and collective liberation.
