Owner of Positive Soul Holistic Therapy

jeanettelira@positivesoultherapy.com

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.

Where do you start when you decide to make that first step in asking for help or support?  One of the most important decisions you can make is deciding who to work with.  I work from a strength-based and trauma-informed perspective.  I want to help you realize how resilient you are and all of the parts that make you who you are.  Learning to be honest with yourself is the first step. From there, we can develop goals to work on and agree how to get there.

I have a very diverse background.  I have spent the last 4 years working with military, active duty and veterans in research and treatment facilities, as well as adolescents and adults in private practice.  I also have experience working with addiction.  My passion is helping survivors deal with depression, anxiety, shame, grief and or guilt.

Life can be difficult in many ways. Perhaps you are changing jobs, entering a new life stage, or making a life altering transition. Or maybe you are struggling more with day to day challenges, such as stress, anxiety, or even depression. When it comes to life, there is no clear straight path to take, it is full of ups, downs, twists, and turns.

My goal as your licensed professional counselor is to walk alongside you in your life journey and guide you towards living the best life that you want. You can be assured that your counseling sessions will be tailored to your needs that will aid in self-growth and healing. I have experience working from a variety of approaches, including DBT, CBT, TF-CBT, EMDR, and Gottman’s Couples Therapy.

As a counselor it’s important to get the professional help you need during traumatic life events, life stressors, or even self-acceptance. We will work together to find solutions, develop realistic goals, and work through the underlying issues through therapy.
