Theresa Jeffries, LCSW, Albuquerque

Theresa Jeffries is a licensed clinical social worker oriented to a client-centered existential-humanistic approach that respects every person’s potential to heal and create a meaningful life. She works primarily with first responders, their families, military veterans, and adults working through loss, trauma, and life transitions. She is experienced in working with trauma and PTSD, acute stress disorder, substance use disorders, codependency, and marital or intimate relationship concerns.

Using an intersectional psychodynamic framework, Theresa helps clients reassess their locus of control and resolve feeling disappointed in, or disengaged from, their life. Focusing on the whole person, she looks to understand the client’s unique life experience, culture, and goals to create services suited to their needs.

Theresa graduated from Columbia University School of Social Work in New York City. She’s practiced clinical social work for more than 25 years and spent decades in higher education teaching counseling skills. She’s trained in EMDR, Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Logotherapy, Cognitive-Somatic practices, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, and holistic modalities that include Sound Healing, Reiki, and Quantum Alignment.
