Hello! I'm Jackie and I'm an art therapist. I run my art therapy private practice with my beloved therapy dog, Egon.
Art Therapist in Tucson, AZ
Expressive art therapy is similar to art therapy, but that it includes MULTIPLE modalities. For example, painting WITH music or creating a sculpture and then writing about it.
I work with neurodivergent folx who are highly sensitive. I see high sensitivity as a gift and not something to be "fixed." I help folx identify the strengths of their sensitivy and learn how to work with the limitations of it.
I work with folx who often identify with the symptoms of depression. Many times, they cannot figure out why they feel so depressed.
Art therapy is a mental health profession that utilizes the creatives arts to improve mental health and well-being. Art therapy involves all forms of art - from clay to painting to poetry. Art cuts through all of the overwhelming emotions and thoughts to get right to the heart of the matter. It connects us to our subconscious, allowing us to fully express our emotions. It connects us to our intuition, allowing us to heal old wounds, re-discover parts of ourselves, and feel more alive.
