Our Staff

Amanda Weintraub, LICSW

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has provided counseling to children, adolescents, families, and adults across the life spectrum for nearly 10 years. I have been told my style is warm, engaging, and dynamic. I received my Master’s degree in Social Work from Simmons College in 2014. I have experience working in various settings including Community Mental Health, Boston Public School System, and Tufts Medical Center’s Primary Care Practice.

I believe that overcoming anxiety, depression, PTSD and other forms of chronic and acute symptoms can happen within a collaborative and healing therapeutic relationship. My approach to therapy is largely based in Mindfulness based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). As a fundamental principle to my practice, I allow each of my client’s unique strengths and expertise to guide our work together.
