Dr. LaShon Sawyer

(MSSA, PhD, LISW-S)

About Me

Welcome! I have been a licensed clinician for over 23 years. Throughout the years, I have worked with clients of varying ages across an array of service areas. For example, I have worked with clients to discuss topics such as mental health, coping strategies, anxiety, decision making/problem solving, grief and loss, family changes/conflicts, stress, and coping with long-term or new medical conditions.

I also have extensive experience working with individuals with previous involvement in the criminal justice system. This work has provided me with the opportunity to also work with the family members, loved ones, and others connected to the person who may have served time.

I am comfortable working with individuals seeking to enter the workforce for the first time, re-entering the workforce or interested in changing career paths. I would work with you to identify the talents you are interested in highlighting in an upcoming job search as well as addressing barriers that may have impacted employment situations in the past.

When working with clients, I strive to provide a supportive and safe space to communicate. We can work together to identify realistic strategies for your progress and long-term success. My number one priority is to be a great listener and provide support along the way. It is important to me that you walk away from our time together, feeling heard and respected. I promote a therapeutic environment that stands on the value that “all are welcomed here”. Our differences should be treated with compassion and dignity.

I look forward to working with you!
