Jeanette N. Lira LPC-S
Owner of Positive Soul Holistic Therapy
My goal as your counselor will be to help you understand yourself holistically. Mind, body, and soul. I have worked with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, loss, drug and alcohol use, gender identity, career and transition confusion, relationship/friendship problems, behavioral problems, chronic pain and illness, suicidal ideations, and much more. I have experience in group, individual, family, and couples counseling. I practice Postmodern Holistic Therapy, which encompasses focus on all factors of an individual’s life, and Emotional Transformation Therapy.
We will work together to find meaning in your beliefs and thoughts about yourself, and current situations. This will be accomplished using CBT, ETT, art, music, books, and other creative techniques. ETT is a form of therapy that helps individuals change their thoughts, and ideas which helps change their emotions.
