About Me

Hello there!

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile page. Being a support to couples working through relationship struggles is a passion in my life! I enjoy listening to couples and helping them to find a way through tough times. My experience includes a Master's Degree of Social Work from the University of Utah and now, I fulfilled my dream with a Doctorate too! For almost 20 years, I have worked in child and family services. Currently, I counsel the chronically ill on end of life decisions, work in researching foster teens transition from foster care, counsel couples, and individuals, and teach at a local university. I also have a small private practice where I help men and women in tough transitions such as divorce and family issues.

In my clinical practices and experiences, I have had the privilege of helping families overcome struggles with teens are struggling through issues of adolescence and mental health problems. Parents sometimes believe that they are the only parents going through tough with teens. I enjoy supporting parents in the journey as hard as it might be sometimes. Also, I have a passion for helping those navigating a new life in sobriety. Addiction recovery is one of the bravest things that I have seen people overcome and I like to help people stay on the path of recovery. All my clinical practice incorporates cognitive behaviors strategies with a very positive Rogerian approach. Those I treat will be treated with respect and clearly set boundaries.

I want to help others by starting to help them where they want to begin. I believe in my couples I help and I want them to be happy and successful in their relationships . I can help my couples by setting goals, open communication and unconditional positive regard to help with hard life situations. I counsel a lot of couples who have struggled with infidelity and polyamorous and open relationships. I wish you the best on your journey and hope to have the chance to help you!

Sincerely,
Dr. Terri Nicole Sawyer, LCSW

Totally amazing. She has helped me in so many ways in just a short period of time. Always has a way to look at something from a different perspective than I can see. Her help is allowing me to realize that which I could not and its allowing for me to make the changes I've wanted to for so long but was unsure in what way to do so.
