Portland Hypnotherapist Michael Nagel MA
About My Approach to Hypnotherapy
I have been in private practice in Portland as a hypnotherapist for more than ten years. In 2001, retired from a successful business career to pursue this career which is my passion. I have always been interested in the inner workings of the mind and human potential. I recall beginning to read Freud in the 8th grade.
My expertise includes my certification by the National Guild of Hypnotists as a hypnotherapy trainer. My practice is augmented by my Bachelor and Masters degrees in psychology and my trainings in diverse therapy modalities. (I also have a practice as a counselor, Whole Person Counseling.As a writer, my articles have been published in popular magazines, scholarly journals, and books. An ongoing writing project of mine is the Personal Authenticity Project blog.

The Population I Serve as a Hypnotherapist
Please note that the services which I provide are not a substitute for the assessment, or diagnosis, or treatment of mental and medical illness when such is needed, desired, or required. I do not assess, diagnose, treat, or prescribe any illness whether mental disorder or physical.
Persons seeking diagnosis or treatment of behavioral, emotional or mental disorders are advised to seek the services of a licensed psychotherapist. I practice hypnotherapy as an Unlicensed Counselor as allowed by the State of Oregon.
The clients with whom I work are everyday persons such as you and I who seek to optimize their functioning, and to realize the promise of their human potential.
