About Jessica Arndt, LICSW

“What’s a strong body without a sound mind?  The mind is like a muscle, the more you train it, the stronger it becomes. While the greats master the body, the greatest master the mind.” —Lebron James

Jessica graduated from the University of St. Thomas in 2008 with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work. She has 18 years experience working in the fields of mental health and addictions, over 10 of those years as a therapist for adults and families struggling with a variety of life challenges such as trauma, addiction, grief and loss, employment challenges, relationships problems, and physical health problems.

Clients can expect that Jessica is ready to process what they bring to session, but also to provide teaching concrete skills that clients feel they can use to ease suffering outside of sessions. In addition to her certification in Narrative Therapy, Jessica also has extensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness and Mind/Body awareness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.

She has particular interest and experience working with Veterans, victims of sexual assault and domestic violence, members of law enforcement and emergency responders as well as those struggling to manage substance use and their family members.

COVID-19 Update

During this pandemic and beyond, Gail Yost and Associates is now offering telehealth/virtual visits for your convenience and care. We understand that times like this can be challenging on many levels and want to be sure that you feel supported. Please make sure to read the CDC website at cdc.gov to learn more about symptoms and additional information regarding risks and precautions.

At this point, with risk of infection still fairly low but growing, this measure is an attempt at social responsibility – an act of care for the wider community to which we belong. By taking precautions not to spread the virus, we are helping to ensure that hospitals are not stretched to capacity and those who need the most care can receive it.

Thank you,
Gail Yost, Owner
