About me

I am licensed therapist in the state of Ohio with 11 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients cope with addiction use disorders both in an in-patient and out-patient setting, work through trauma and abuse, increase motivation, self esteem and confidence, and gain skills needed to cope with depression and anxiety. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I offer a solutions focused environment. I understand that when people come to me for help, they are looking to improve their lives in some way and I am here to help them do that. I believe that in order to have a successful therapist/client relationship the client must be met with empathy, compassion and the safety that it takes to open up and work through things together.

A little bit about myself: I am a wife and a mother of two. I have two dogs as well so I guess you could say that I am a mother of four. We enjoy being outside; walking, camping, adventuring. In my spare times I enjoy sitting outside by myself and drinking my coffee. I developed a passion for helping others while starting college and going through my own challenges of anxiety and depression. It can be difficult to accept sometimes that life does not always go as planned.

Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! Please note that I build my schedule around the needs of my clients to the best of my ability. Do not get discouraged if my schedule does not look like it will work for you. Please reach out and I will do my best to adjust my schedule. I open evening sessions on an as needed basis.

Dr. Edmundson listens, analyzes, and gracefully responds with wisdom, knowledge, truth, and tools that can bring about change. She is a lifeline.

Jessica asks leading questions and is able to quickly identify areas of focus long before I am able to see the problem. It is important that one seeking therapy be open to self-introspection and accepting help. I have been with therapists that seem to want to drag out the answer to prolong the service. Jessica on the other hand seems motivated to deliver immediate meaningful assistance that drive long term healthy behaviors. She is a master at her art.

I've worked with Jessica for a year and would highly recommend her! She provides a balance of compassionate listening with solution-based steps. I love the weekly affirmations she sends out. She goes above and beyond to serve her clients!

Truthfully, I was wanting to give up on therapy before I met with Jessica. I have only met with her a few times, but she has made it easy for me to open up, and express what I am thinking and feeling. She has given me amazing advice, tools to use outside of therapy and every time I end a session with her, I feel at ease. She also sends messages to her clients weekly and they make your week and provide you with more tools to help cope. She is amazing, and I highly recommend her!
