Welcome to I OpeningTherapy, an experience of knowing the Personal I to the expanding awareness of the collective I, with Janet O’Shea, LCSW.

Janet O’Shea is a N.Y.S. Licensed Clinical Social Worker who uniquely blends traditional psychotherapy with soul healing modalities, effecting a profound change in allowing one to experience a more joyful life. Since childhood Janet has always been deeply moved to help others through difficult times in their lives as well as feeling a profound connection to the metaphysical world. For many years these two passions were explored as separate entities, however, it became inevitable that the wisdom and benefits from both modalities would come together to create a greater healing experience.

While “talk therapy” may be healing and beneficial in and of itself at times, too often people continue their life patterns despite their level of intellectual awareness. It is Janet’s desire to help others connect to their true nature and free themselves from ego based beliefs and fears. These fears are often a result of trauma and wounding that occur, leaving an imprint within our unconscious, creating negative thoughts, outdated belief patterns, and repetitive unwanted behaviors. Janet combines cognitive awareness with the energetic release of confining soul imprints. This restructuring of our energetic bodies enables us to make more effective choices that better serve our highest and truest self. Janet has been trained extensively in high frequency energetic healing both nationally and internationally.

This eclectic approach integrates spiritual alchemical healing techniques, intuitive soul reading/restructuring, hypnotherapy/past life regression therapy, creative visualization, Integrated Energy Therapy (I.E.T) and Reiki.

Janet is passionate about teaching technique healing modalities and non- technique approaches to those who wish to pursue the healing arts for their own healing and/or as a profession. She is an Ericksonian Hypnotherapist and graduated from NYSEPH. Janet is one of the top 28 Master Level IET Instuctors in 2008 and 2010 and actively teaches this modality as well as creative meditation including techniques that incorporate spiritual alchemy.

Janet has over 20 years of professional experience in the healing arts. Her background includes working with adolescents and adults on a wide range of issues including substance abuse, depression and anxiety.

Early in her career she became the assistant director of a multi-service outpatient substance abuse treatment and prevention community-based program in Rockland County, NY. There she worked intensely with adolescents and adults in individual, couple, family, group and community settings. During this period she was a lecturer and a developer of a county-wide approach to adolescent depression and suicide,as well as co-author of a widely used adolescent suicide response manual for schools and communities. More recently Janet has been the lead author of a county-wide bullying prevention /awareness curriculum adopted by several school districts,which compiled published classroom lessons for bullying prevention.

Janet is also a National Trainer for the Olweus Bully Prevention, an internationally-renowned bullying prevention program.
