Professional statement

Jacqueline Clifford is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Albuquerque, NM. She supports young adults and adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, or addiction. Her clients tend to find that they are afraid to be their authentic selves at home or at work, which can lead to challenges in their relationships as well as emotional exhaustion. She works with many individuals who seek professional help as they navigate their gender or sexual identities, providing affirmation care to improve overall well-being.

Jacqueline provides each client with unique care, tailoring approaches and sessions to offer comprehensive, individualized support. Clients benefit from Jacqueline’s strengths-based approach, learning more about what makes them strong and resilient as they process through the difficult aspects of their lives. She also integrates mindfulness practices into her sessions to improve clients’ self-awareness and to help them feel centered and grounded in the present. All progress gets celebrated as clients progress towards their mental health goals.

Jacqueline earned a Master’s degree from Columbia University and she has five years of experience in the field of mental health. She enjoys empowering clients to set boundaries, create new patterns, and connect with a strong authentic self.


Message to clients

Many of us are drifting through life feeling unfulfilled, lacking joy, depressed, and anxious. We are feeling the pressures of family, work, and social standards from multiple directions. It can feel like we are suffocating under these pressures and can't seem to gain our footing to experience the wonderful things this life has to offer. If you are desiring more joy, more peace, and more stability in your life-I'd like to help you find it. If you are trying to heal from trauma or make peace with your past-I'd like to walk alongside you. You do not have to do that journey alone.

It can be challenging to reach out for help. I want to commend you for getting this far and simply reading my bio. I want to reassure you that I am here to welcome you non-judgmentally into a place where you can feel safe. I would love to get to know you more.
