About me

Hi, my name is Michelle Swerin. I am certified hypnotherapist / meditation teacher, mindfulness therapist, trained community health worker, and art therapist. I have been practicing therapy for over a decade and have experience in many health settings. I am especially passionate about helping people learn how to cope with emotions in relations to health conditions and wellness, build self-care, understand and change self-talk, manage change, anxiety, binge eating disorder, and ADHD.

I am a person-centered therapist (meaning I meet you where you are. I recognize you are the expert of your life and you are not a label or a diagnosis) and my role is to connect with you to help you feel empowered to make change in your life that you want to make. I do this by utilizing brain-based psychoeducation, art therapy motivational interviewing, CBT, art therapy, narrative/exposure therapy, self hypnosis, and mindfulness skills practice. Furthermore I am neurodivergent and I am a brain and body diversity advocate.

"People need encouragement like a plant needs water." My role as your therapist is to hold the watering can and help you build the gardening skills to help your grow and thrive.
