Hello & Welcome

Welcome to Creative Insights Counseling Services, LLC. If you are struggling with a life transition, depression or past trauma, and seeking support, I am here to help you grow and flourish. I provide a free 15- minute phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you and working together.

Individual Therapy

I am a client centered therapist working with children, teens, and adults.

Art Therapy

Art therapy can aid clients who need a non-verbal, creative way to engage in therapy.

Couples Therapy

We explore patterns of behavior, develop healthy communication and improve conflict resolution.

Martin Weishaar

I received my Master of Arts in Art Therapy from the George Washington University. There, I had the opportunity to complete my internships at Sheppard Pratt hospital in Baltimore, Maryland and Walter Reed National Military Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland where I conducted group and individual therapy with children and adults.

Prior to becoming a therapist, I pursed a Master of Fine Arts in Painting from the American University.  From there I moved to Baltimore, Maryland where I taught middle school and high school art.  I was able to practice as an artist and have the experience of developing insight and awareness of how art enables children and teens to foster emotional insight and awareness.

Now as I take on the role as a therapist, I want to work with children and adults, and bear witness to emotional needs while co-creating change. I continue to be a Baltimore based artist.  I believe that both careers balance my goals while continuously motivating me to grow as a human being.  I enjoy long distance running, and I am a lover of cats.  Thank you for visiting my website and I hope to work with you soon.

I have interests in working with:

  • Children, teens, adults, and couples
  • Trauma related disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

My Approach

I am an LGPAT (ATG200), LGPC (LGP8396). I offer talk and art therapy services. I am an attachment-based therapist working with children, teens, adults, and couples.  During our sessions, we examine how your personal belief systems, the relationships around you, and the experiences you have had, inform your decisions, emotions, and thoughts. In order to get there, I utilize a variety of skill-based therapies and therapeutic approaches- I believe that there is not a one-size fits all form of therapy.

While working with an individual or couple, I am informed by your age and cultural point of view- you come to therapy with your own bag of questions, concerns, and needs.  My role is to facilitate the space for you to express your emotional needs while helping you develop awareness and make positive change.

During our first session we discuss the reasons why you have come to therapy, collect historical data, and discuss your goals for therapy.  Our therapy will continue weekly until we have mutually agreed that we can transition to bi-weekly or monthly sessions.

I utilize the following therapeutic models:

  • Existential psychotherapy
  • DBT informed therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Relational Life Therapy (couples therapeutic model)
  • CBT-techniques
