Claire Westrick, M.Ed.

Claire Westrick attended Indiana University in Bloomington, Illinois, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree; she later obtained her teacher’s certificate and taught at the high school level as well as teaching English as a Second Language to non-native speakers. She then attended Loyola University in Chicago, Illinois, where she earned a Master of Education degree in Community Counseling.

Ms. Westrick has more than nine years of experience working in the Employee Assistance Program field where she specializes in assessment, crisis intervention and brief psychotherapy to address mood disorders (such as depression), relationship concerns, grief and loss, infertility, stress, work/life balance struggles, workplace issues and substance abuse. She also works in a respite capacity with individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.

Ms. Westrick treats adolescents, adults, couples and families. Her professional interests include family systems (exploring how one’s family dynamics influence their functioning), communication, healthy boundaries, mindfulness and wellness. She works from a strengths-based perspective and believes in the healing nature of the therapeutic relationship while working to identify and strengthen internal resources and external sources of support. Her treatment approach is collaborative, educational and supportive. Her goal is to create a safe environment where clients can address their concerns honestly and openly, ultimately leading to new insight, growth, and more intentional and meaningful relationships.
