I started my counseling journey, by developing an all-woman's support group entitled, "Women in Leadership." I then began working in corporate America, until I decided to go back to school for psychology. My experience involves working in major hospitals to court-appointed therapy for individuals in the criminal justice system. In that experience, I became affiliated with trauma specializations including domestic violence, rape, homicide, addiction, and gang violence.
Professional And Executive Coaching
With experience in sales and marketing, working for Fortune 500 companies to large Pharmaceutical companies, I have a wide variety of knowledge in career planning, corporate coaching, and business coaching.
Arts And Movement
Currently, I am completing my yoga certification to teach yoga classes. I am a trained dancer with over 15 years of experience including performances in the Austin, Texas area on stage at different venues. I am also an exhibited visual artist with experience showcasing and performing in film, visual medium and more.
My work focuses on helping individuals navigate periods of high stress and difficulty, overcoming complex and embedded states of emotional trauma, and building new patterns for parenting, partnering and relationship building.
In her free time, Paige Swanson enjoys painting, traveling and ballet.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
People have always asked, “why did I become a therapist?” And that question has always sat with me – like many of the emotions I sit with daily. And the truth is, my choice to become a therapist was a calling for me. It was a spiritual and emotional drive to do something that was bigger than myself.
What the Caterpillar Calls the End of Life, the Master Calls the Butterfly.
– Richard Bach
This was the first sentence of my personal statement which got me into Northwestern University where I got my graduate degree. Psychotherapy changes hearts and ignites transformation in an individual; the same way that the caterpillar transforms into a butterfly. In therapy, I get to watch people grow into magical, beautiful, bright-winged butterflies. I hope that Sauna can be a place for us to be human together. To self-inquire and get curious about ourselves. To know that even in the darkness – you’re not alone and we’re all on a particular journey. Sauna is a place to find a glimpse of hope and to grow wings that allow you to soar.
