Jackie Pack: Owner of Healing Paths, LCSW, CSAT-S, CMAT
Jackie graduated with her Master of Social Work from Louisiana State University in 1995. After graduation, she traveled back to Utah and embarked on a journey in substance addiction therapy. As she delved into the addiction field, she discovered hidden aspects of her own family’s history and began making sense of her upbringing. Subsequently, she transitioned to working with adults who experienced sexual trauma as children and noticed striking similarities between both client populations. Jackie is an expert in treating behavioral and substance addiction, relationship issues and trauma. She is an innovator, podcast host, and started a mental health specialty group practice treating sexual betrayal and trauma where she has worked for the past 10 years.
Driven to enhance the therapeutic environment for male and female sex addiction clients, she pursued a CSAT certification. Initial challenges in this role, including biased beliefs and lack of support, motivated her to launch Healing Paths. This collaborative group practice is rooted in empathy, inclusivity, and personal care for clients. Healing Paths is focused on providing leading edge treatment to sex addicts, partners of sex addicts, trauma survivors and those struggling with intimate relationships. It is grounded in the belief that change happens through connection and secure relationships. Our programs are grounded on an interpersonal-relational model that leads to transformed lives and relationships.
Jackie is passionate about educating and training mental health professionals in providing quality care and engaging with clients from an interpersonal-based approach. Jackie is a certified sex addiction therapist and supervisor, trained by Dr. Patrick Carnes, and is in the process of completing her Ph.D. in clinical sexology. Jackie co-facilitates the Bespoke Leadership Intensive, leveraging her insights into human behavior to guide participants in understanding their purpose. Jackie’s calm demeanor and group dynamic expertise enrich this 5-day immersive experience.
In addition to her work, Jackie loves spending time at the beach.
Spending time laughing and sharing with those she loves makes her happy.
She hates Brussels Sprouts!
She collects snarky and witty t-shirts.
She believes that music is the soundtrack to life.
Spending time outdoors with a good book nourishes her soul.
And her four daughters keep her busy and remind her to not take life too seriously!
