Work Experience

Jackie started off training to be an English teacher but pivoted her focus to psychology after falling in love with the work of Carl Jung. After obtaining her masters degree in psychology, she began working in the mental health field by facilitating expressive arts and narrative therapy focused groups for women in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Excited about working more one on one with youth and families, Jackie began working with clients in various community settings as a Wraparound counselor. In this role she delivered TBS and individual rehabilitation interventions, as well as provided crisis support.

Jackie found her home at TLC where she continues to work with youth and families as the Director of Admissions. She sees the strength and potential in every youth she works with and loves watching their growth journey from intake to graduation.

Although you can most often find Jackie in her office or taking families on tours, she can also be found spending time with the youth while river rafting, dancing at prom or handing out popsicles to the youth after a warm day on the ropes course.

More About Jackie
