About Us > Angela Jette Swanson, PhD

I work with a wide variety of issues including relational and stress management concerns, life transitions, career issues, communication skills, parenting, anxiety, and depression. My primary areas of specialization are couples counseling and hypnotherapy.

I specialize in evidence-based therapy to develop healthy communication and connection and am particularly influenced by current research in the field of positive psychology, neuroscience, and mind-body medicine. My initial focus is providing a warm, supportive environment while getting to know your unique situation and concerns. After we agree on a direction for therapy, I tend to be relatively directive and engaged. I help people express emotions and build relationship skills. I tend to be solution-focused and strength-based, with a strong belief in mindfulness interventions to develop health and well-being. I created HYPMIND, a specialized method of increasing well-being and decreasing stress, to help my clients deal with stress-related conditions that affect health and relationships.

I have previously worked as Clinical Director of the Family Support Center and Adjunct Faculty at the University of Utah teaching graduate level courses in Family Therapy. I utilize the Gottman Method and am a Certified Gottman Educator with the Bringing Baby Home Program. I have advanced training and certification in couples communication (Couples Communication Program), meditation (Clinically Standardized Meditation) and hypnotherapy (Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, ICBCH), along with many years of yoga practice.
