- Psychologist What's this? A psychologist is extensively trained to help people learn to cope more effectively with life issues and mental health illnesses. They are licensed to provide a number of service, including evaluations, therapy and other evidence-based treatments. A common type of treatment is talk therapy (sometimes called cognitive behavioral therapy), but there are many types of therapy styles.

About MeAs a psychologist, I specialize in rehabilitation psychology, specifically working with patients who are dealing with burn injury, cancer, spinal cord injury or chronic pain. It’s rewarding to assist those dealing with traumatic or distressing injuries as well as other medical events in a patient’s process to recovery.
I help patients who are coping with chronic illness or new injury to find healthy and adaptive ways of dealing with these health challenges. My goal is to see that my patients reach or even exceed their goals in order to lead meaningful, fulfilling and enriching lives.
At Ohio State, I really enjoy working with a multidisciplinary team where my colleagues are just as passionate and dedicated as I am to patient care and promoting increased awareness to a healthy lifestyle.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time and relaxing with my family, traveling and reading. I also enjoy being outdoors and kayaking whenever I can.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 12/20/2018, Dr. Jackson has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
