Hello there! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile page. Being a supportive clinical social worker 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 Masters and Doctorate in Social Work and for almost 20 years, I have worked with teens and adults. Currently, I counsel the chronically ill on end of life decisions, help couples navigate marriage and families, individuals with mental health struggles, and teach at a local university. I "retired" after 15 years of helping teens and their families try to understand how to resolve conflict and learn to communicate better. I also have a small private practices where I help people in tough transitions such as divorce and family issues. I counsel a lot of couples who have struggled with infidelity and polyamorous and open relationships. 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 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! Sincerely, Dr. Terri Nicole Sawyer, LCSW Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP) Certified Clinical Telemental Health Provider (CTMH) Certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (C-DBT)

Good day to you! My name is Jessica and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor. After earning my bachelor’s degree in psychology, I found myself working with animals while working toward my Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have experience with inpatient psychiatric clients, case management for federal inmates, and as a counselor in community-based non-intensive outpatient clinics. My passion for counseling was born from my own experiences and those of my family. I was raised by two US Marines so I’ve lived all over. I spent eight years working in veterinary medicine, and worked with my animal patients, but also their caretakers. No other environment has taught me more about empathy, the power of nonverbal communication, and how precious life is, even at its end. My approach to counseling is based in existentialism and the belief that purpose and meaning lead to a person’s most fulfilling life. I especially enjoy helping individuals who struggle with self-limiting beliefs, persistent and severe mental illness, and history of trauma find healing, as well as practical methods to cope with stressors and build a purposeful and satisfying life. I’m particularly driven to help clients who suffer from chronic self-destructive behaviors such as self-harm and suicidal ideations.

Inner peace is something that many of us seek, but sometimes we feel stuck in unhealthy patterns of thinking and behavior (that’s often handed to us early on) that make life feel challenging. Building awareness of our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors can open the doorway to practicing new ways of being in the world that cultivates inner peace. This is the journey that I seek to help others on. I especially enjoy working with those seeking to cultivate healthy relationships with themselves and others, those going through spiritual transitions and healing religious trauma, and those in the LGBTQ+ community. In my work, I often help clients tease out the unhealthy messages they may have internalized from cultural and familial dynamics. My hope for the clients that I work with is that, through deepening awareness and boldly trying new perspectives and behaviors, they will bit by bit begin to see true positive change in their emotional experiences and relationships.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How much does a therapist cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How do I know if I should get a therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. You do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy; You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general advice. A counselor may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many professionals provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in Idaho can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is online therapy safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
