Jean Thumm, LMFT
As a potential patient of mine, you should know that I approach each individual, couple, family, or workplace team in a way that best meets their individual needs. As required of all counselors, I complete 20 hours of continuing education per year, BUT in addition I study continually to meet patients' needs as they emerge. My book, Soft Skills for Tough Issues, is helpful for individuals, couples and in the workplace. I have been honored to serve as Collaborative Investigator for the DSM-V by the American Psychiatric Association. I have also delivered an address for the New Mexico Equality Opportunity Commission and a key presentation at the 40th anniversary of WIC in Albuquerque, NM.

JeanEva is a wonderful trauma counselor who I would highly recommend to anyone! She is well skilled in EMDR and brainspotting techniques that go far beyond the normal CBT approach generally used in therapy. I have only been seeing her for 2 months and have made tremendous improvement. She has changed my life and I am forever grateful!

Yes, I remember Jean Thumm, she was my "Divorce" counselor in 1986-1987. She counseled both my husband of 28 years and me prior to my pending divorce. She extended positivse and encouraging advice to us both. After the divorce she suggested I continue with "transition" conseling, which saved my life. To this day, I recall her kind and caring advice which eased the difficult road ahead. I believe she was God sent. It is my pleasure to praise her. Respectfully, Patricia Webster Hrivnak

Jean Eva is nothing short of incredible. She is exceedingly kind, compassionate, and so easy going. I initially found her for EMDR and brain spotting for my brother and his struggles from PTSD. He is sometimes slow to open up and felt so very comfortable with her. Because she is so kind and inviting, I've decide to do some general and relationship therapy with her. I am actually incredibly excited for what is to come through this experience!

I called to see if she had availability for couples counseling and she was very rude to me for no reason I asked if she took my insurance and she told me unfortunately I do why would I want to deal with such a hateful person I'm 7months pregnant and going through a hard time I needed counseling for me and my boyfriend but she will not be my counsellor I would never talk to a stranger that way I hung up on her she called me back and admitted to being rude and told me she would deal with me rude
This patient was never in my office, so I don't believe she has the ability to rate my services. This is just an angry response to my not being able to accommodate her.

Jean-Eva Thumm is sensitive, flexible, and compassionate with expertise in a wide variety of therapeutic modalities. I have had results that exceeded my expectations in resolving complicated grief along with PTSD. Brainspotting and EMDR are fast acting and largely non-verbal. I made conscious connections in my deep brain to resource the Self resulting in a more engaged life, free of physical disassociation and dizziness. I highly recommend her and Brainspotting.

Jean Thumm is a remarkable lady. She specializes in EMDR and brain spotting and as someone who suffers from PTSD, I have never worked with another therapist that has been able to help me access my deep rooted trauma and to grieve it in the way that I have with Jean. Many therapists simply have you talk about your trauma, which is sometimes helpful, but not for someone with extensive trauma as I have. Jean has been a true angel in my life and I am blessed to have found her.
in Santa Fe, NM |
Jean treats her clients as if she known them a long time. With her professionalism and experience she always has the right answer for any question or problem that arises and or a way to work through a situation. My family would highly recommend Jean to any family member or friend.
