Hey! So Glad You're Here.
My name is Jacquie.
I am a Mother of four amazing kids, a registered Art Therapist, an Award winning artist and a true Survivor with a story to tell.
We all have story we will never tell right? Well my story is many things, but heartbreaking yet inspirational are the two ways I would like to describe it. How else could I describe meeting a sheep dressed in wolf's clothing at the age of 48?
Fast track 4 years and this compassionate ambitious teacher had become a broken and beaten meth addict. That's the heartbreaking part. BUT... from that comes the inspirational part.
From the Other Side is my story. In brutal honesty, I will take you with me to the bottom. From before I met him, to the darkest days of my life, and then through the difficult journey back from drug addiction and domestic violence. My memoir was written for healing but published to help others, and it is something I am very proud of.
You can buy a signed copy of my memoir by clicking on the shop link at the top of the page.
I am now a practicing Art Therapist with a passion for helping others, using expressive arts creation to transform trauma into personal freedom.
