Michelle Morton, MA, LPCC, ATR

Prior to joining Chrysalis Family Solutions, she developed and implemented a complete art therapy program at a residential treatment center in Wooster, Ohio. There she gained valuable experience working with children, adolescents and families through residential and outpatient care. Her education, experience and skills in art therapy, allow her to use this expressive modality as a successful counseling approach with individuals and groups.

Michelle integrates her training in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) developed by Dr. Bruce Perry, with her knowledge of the Expressive Therapies Continuum (ECT), developed by Kagin and Lusebrink. These two theories are complimentary, as they combine a trauma informed and neurosequential developmental approach with various media in art. Michelle has found great success using this approach in working with children and adolescents experiencing any form of emotional, behavioral, or mental health challenges.
