Counselor on Staff
Jacquie Arcand joined TBH in the summer of 2018 with 16 years of behavioral health experience including program development, leadership, and therapeutic services. She possesses a thorough working knowledge of the treatment and etiology of substance abuse and co-occurring disorders and has personally experienced the impact of addiction on the individual and family.
Her experience has given her a deep understanding that she integrates into her approach to therapy with clients, populations ranging from adolescent to adult clients in both residential and outpatient settings. Jacquie was attracted to work with TBH in planning the Residential Treatment Center for adolescent males—scheduled to open in January of 2019.
In previous behavioral health settings, Jacquie has worked in a variety of residential treatment settings where she provided family counseling, direct treatment of young adults and program development and marketing. She was a founder and remains active in an Arizona-based Equine Assisted Learning/Therapy Program that serves veterans, first responders, and their family members.
As a master’s level clinical social worker (New Mexico Highlands University), Jacquie specializes in trauma and family systems issues, which are often present for those struggling with addiction, behavioral and/or mental health challenges. She is a trained EMDR therapist.
Jacquie’s professional life prior to entering into the behavioral health field included corporate communications, project management, marketing and research. With Canadian roots, Jacquie has a passion for the outdoors, travel, any activities that involve time with her dog, and the exploration of innovative ways to help those in need.
Jacquie brings her unique personal and professional experiences to the development of Lobo Peak—the Residential Treatment Center.
