About Us

Wellspring Counseling Center, Inc. was formed in Spring 2008 when partners Sheri McCallister and Brian Westrate set out to bring a fresh, attachment-focused approach to the counseling field. Sheri and Brian met as Master Degree students at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and nearly a decade later worked together at the same private practice counseling office. They have currently worked together for more than 20 years.

Sheri and Brian hope that their partnership helps bring the healing, growth, and transformation to clients that they know is possible. They repeatedly experience individuals redeeming their painful pasts and having meaningful lives when they face their fear, pain, and despair.

The foundation for Wellspring Counseling Center is based on reliability, consistency, openness, and empathy. Wellspring counselors commit themselves to continued growth as both therapists and individuals, believing that health is found in continued development.

Dr. Sheri McCallister graduated in 1983 with a Bachelors in Psychology from Trinity College in Deerfield, Illinois.
