Jennifer Swanson


Personal Trainer





 Hi! Thank you for visiting my profile page. I am Dr. Jennifer Swanson, psychologist, AFAA certified personal trainer and owner of Fitness N Mind, LLC. It is truly a blessing to be included among the caring, innovative healthcare professionals at Authentic. I am honored and grateful to offer mental health and wellness services to Authentic families as well as our greater community.


I earned a B.S. in psychology from Carroll University in 1993, an M.S. in educational psychology from UW Milwaukee in 1997, and an Ed.D. in counseling psychology from Argosy University in 2016. I have worked as a school counselor, a group fitness instructor, personal trainer, stay-at-home mom and psychologist over the course of my career!  In 2017, I started Fitness N Mind, LLC to share a unique and transformative mind-body experience. I am passionate about teaching people how exercise boosts the brains potential for growth. When exercise and psychotherapy are combined during a Fitness N Mind session it may be possible to reach therapeutic goals more effectively. Many of my clients stated their sessions were a powerful experience and noticed immediate improvement in their negative self-talk. Additionally, I educate clients on the brain-gut connection and if desired can guide them to wholefoods and supplements shown to support mental health.


I live an active, fulfilling life with my two teenage daughters and Golden Retriever Maggi. I enjoy singing in the contemporary choir at church, leading a DivorceCare support group, plus volunteering for Parent Network as a parent educator and suicide prevention trainer.  


I believe that pregnancy opens an opportunity for great emotional growth, yet there can also be unexpected, worrisome feelings for both moms and dads. When needed, I offer a caring space for people to explore their concerns.  I listen carefully and work with my clients to identify their strengths, explore new perspectives, strengthen relationships and develop personalized goals. I am passionate about empowering people to create purposeful, satisfying lives.



"It was truly the most wonderful experience! The setting is gorgeous and the midwives are angels!" ~~Courtney


"My friend told me it (birth at Authentic) was " a holy experience", she was not wrong! This was my fifth baby, all others had been hospital births. My husband and I both wished we could go back in time and have them all at Authentic." ~~Jen

"It was an absolute privilege to birth there. But, if you asked one of the midwives,they would tell you that it's their privilege to serve us and that is what makes Authentic truly remarkable. Outstanding love and care for every family."

~~ Brittney
