Dr. Terri Sawyer


About Me

Hello there!

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile page. Being a supportive clinical social worker that has a foundation of faith in Jesus Christ is one of the greatest joys in my life. I enjoy listening to others 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 in my education with a dDoctorate. For almost 20 years, I have worked in child and family services. Currently, I counsel the chronically ill on end of life decisions and teach at a local university. But with all those things, my connection to my Lord has been been where I have learned the most.

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. Some teens are acting out because of a loss in their connection with the Lord and that connection is felt with their relationship with their parents. 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 and taking the Gospel to strengthen and lift up others. I believe in my clients I help and I want them to be happy and successful. I can help my clients by setting goals, open communication and unconditional positive regard to help with hard life situations. I wish you the best on your journey and hope to have the chance to help you!

Dr. Sawyer, “Terri”, has become a wonderful companion in my journey through many sorrows and challenges I’ve been facing. She has taught me to think deeply about how I can care for and love myself better. She leads me to find answers from within myself. She is passionate and compassionate. I have never regretted my decision to seek help in my time of need. The Lord is good. Perfect in time and precision to provide for all my needs in the people, places, and things life has brought upon my path. Terri is counted in those blessings.

Dr. Sawyer is an amazing counselor. She is clearly committed to continued education so that she’s always relevant and understanding. She relates to me even though our cultures are different which means a lot to our counselor/client relationship. If you’re struggling with anything, you can rest assured that you’ll be helped if you work with Terri. She cares about her clients and she’s committed to helping them set and reach healthy goals. Even if it’s new to her, she’ll learn it - and quick. She finds ways to relate to you and make you comfortable if online therapy is new to you. Trust me, if you have Terri as your counselor, you’re already on your way to reaching your goal!

Terri has helped me turn my life around. She really got to my personal concerns and her recommendations and observations are spot on. I've had a few therapists. Terri is by far the best. I'm grateful for her and for our interactions. I am definitely on a better path because of Terri.

Terri has been extremely helpful to overcoming obstacles I have struggled with in life. I have been with her for three months and have grown so much with her support and advise. You would be very lucky to have her in your life to discuss anything that is a concern to you or would like to change or improve on. I have told many friends about Faithful Counseling and how it has changed my life for the better! Thank you Terri for helping me. I truly value our sessions and your support every day.

I am so grateful to have been matched with Terri Sawyer. I feel she completely understands the issue that brought me to counseling and has been so kind and understanding as I have been working through the reasons I am here. I like how she asks me the tough questions and doesn't pull any punches, there is no BS. She tells it like it is but in such a loving way. She has been instrumental in helping me and my family deal with a very painful issue and we are working on healing, and I could not see us ever getting there without her help.

In my experience I've been MIA for a couple of days & I would receive a text messages constantly reminding me that my counsellor (Terri Sawyer) has sent a message. That's when I know there is someone I could talk to. I hold on to hope that I will would be able to work through the issues in my life with Terri coaching along the way. Thanks Terri for not giving up on me. God Bless

Work with me!
