Michael J. Emery
Michael J. Emery

Michael J. Emery, MA. C.Ht., M.NLP received a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing and Advertising Management from Portland State University and a Master of Arts from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. While studying marketing and advertising, Michael’s fascination with communication grew when he saw that the stickiness of a message would determine how well an audience would remember the advertisement but there seemed to be no method his professors used to adapt the message. He began to study communication and human behavior, which eventually led him to begin researching various communication models. Michael is certified as a Hypnotherapist and NLP Trainer. Michael is an avid traveler and in his free time he enjoys traveling, bicycling, yoga, martial arts, reading, and creating music.
