Creative Insight Psychotherapy
Hello & thank you for taking a look at my Creative Insight Psychotherapy website. I’m Michelle, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. My practice is based in the Lake Norman of North Carolina and I often incorporate the beautiful scenery outside my office in sessions. I like to work with clients on improving the quality of their relationships- be it as a couple, parent/child, whole family or as an individual seeking out connection in life with those around them. I use attachment therapy, relational therapy and mindfulness practices with most clients. Many times using talk therapy is not enough to reach a full understanding of how to find insight, so I use art therapy and other creative techniques to encourage growth. I am a certified expressive art therapist as well and I find that bringing creativity into sessions when needed can allow movement needed for change. I hope that you enjoy my blog and website and that you find the information useful to you. This in no way replaces therapy and if you are in need of therapeutic treatment please consider finding a therapist in your area. Welcome!
I hold a license as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and received my education in Marriage and Family Therapy from Appalachian State University (ASU). I also received a post-graduate certificate in Expressive Art Therapy from ASU. In 2012 I participated in a 2 year Parent-Child Interactive Therapy program at Duke University that focuses on behavioral issues in very young children (ages 2-6yr old). In 2014 I completed a national training on gambling addiction and the use of gambling type issues, and I will be continuing to attend training to strengthen my skills for this ever-changing addiction. I attend national conferences regularly pertaining to my field, specifically the American Academy of Psychotherapists and was awarded as a Scholar for the 2013 national conference.
