Emily Jeffrey, LSCSW, LMSW

Emily is a licensed clinical social worker with a background in community mental health and healthcare. She believes compassion, understanding, and holding a judgement free stance in her work is important in her approach in working with others. She is skilled at relationship building, and does what she can to help empower and advocate for each person she works with. Communication is one of her strengths, and she does not shy away from helping to facilitate difficult discussions or therapeutic work around grief, end of life discussions, or challenges that are unique to aging.

Emily attended Kansas State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. While working in direct service with individuals with severe mental health diagnoses, she felt drawn to Social Work with its emphasis on social justice, service, integrity, and the importance of human relationships. She then attended graduate school at the University of Kansas for a Masters in Social Work. Her graduate experience includes work with Veterans, HIV Case Management, inpatient and outpatient hospital settings, and dialysis. With her clinical license she is so able to offer psychotherapy through Agewsie to both clients and family members. She enjoys having a blend of care management and clinical work.

Outside of work with Agewise KC she is a wife and mom of two young boys. She also has a unique interest in complementary health practices, and does some individual and group work using Vibrational Sound Therapy and Reiki. She enjoys Pilates, reading, gardening, the outdoors, quality time with her family, and travel.
