Who Am I?
Portland Quit Smoking is brought to you by Michael Nagel MA CI CHT. I am a successful hypnotherapist and counseling therapist (Whole Person Counseling) in private practice in downtown Portland.
Unlike most other hypnotherapists, I bring to my hypnosis practice a supportive educational background which includes not only a Bachelor and Masters degree in psychology, but also certification in a variety of counseling modalities such as neuro-linguistic programing (NLP). Altogether my background enables me to provide an uncommon depth of support for your becoming a non-smoker.
Additionally, I once was a smoker. More than 30 years ago, I stopped my own 15-year, 2-pack a day smoking habit. So I’ve been there, done that. I understand how intimidating the thought of quitting can be. I know too that you can quit.

My wife and I are grateful residents of the Pacific Northwest now for more than 20 years. Among the things which I enjoy are playing with my grandchildren, reading, writing, classical music, and chess. 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.
