Personal Statement

Jackie is an art therapist at Insight Behavior Centers, working with adolescents and adults with mood and anxiety disorders. In 2009, she developed an art therapy program at an alternative high school for adolescents with severe social, emotional, and behavioral issues. Jackie is passionate about advocating for youth, harm reduction approaches, inclusive community art studio practices, and about reducing stigma and raising awareness around mental health issues. A background in film critique and digital video production has led her to explore  the current language, processes, approaches, and ethics  surrounding digital media and modern technologies in art therapy practice.
