About Me

Are you struggling to cope? Do you notice feeling beat down, frazzled, or just going through the motions most days? Life can really throw us some curve balls, can't it? I've been there... since March 2020, we've ALL been there... and it's no fun.

Hi, my name is Tammy L "Laney" Bassham and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) coming alongside clients dealing with mood disorders, grief, burnout, compassion fatigue, developmental trauma and challenging transitions since 2013. Please feel free to refer to me by my nickname, Laney. My experience involves residential addiction treatment including licensed professionals, trauma therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) and utilizing expressive arts. I view my role as a 'compassionate companion' bringing encouragement, education, and creative collaboration to your process. In our work together, my aim is to help you develop resiliency skills and reorganize thoughts/emotions to move forward in life with new perspective, wisdom and skills. Think of me as a Therapeutic Consultant; because guess, what? I'm not the expert here. Only YOU are the expert of you! I simply serve as a support to aid you in moving through this difficult time.

We know bad things happen. Life will keep hurling curve balls. Wilderness seasons may come and go. Yet with new perspective, healing and strength we can thrive, not just survive! So let's schedule a time and see if I'm a good fit for your goals to get unstuck!

She is amazing and the best therapist I’ve ever had. I feel like for the first time ever I’m making progress in my mental health journey and feel like this time I will finally make it through my trauma.

Laney is amazing! She knows how to listen and receives your heart and your worries very well! She also quotes scripture that speak to my situations and understands my level of Christian formation to the point where I feel very seen and heard by her!

The very first day she gave me tools to help toward healing. She checks in with me, remembers our previous conversations (not always a given), and has been altogether wonderful.

She is compassionate and really creates space for you to open up and process thoughts/feelings. She is a light and born to do this career.

Laney (Tammy) is the kindest person I have ever met. She has helped me so much through grief with techniques that I have never been aware of. She uses the Bible and prayed for me during our first session. She was a very healing person to talk to.

I feel she is incredibly skilled and knowledgeable. She is a great listener and has a deep understanding of who I am and my struggles. She makes sure our sessions are productive and not just a vent session. She also gives me tools and actionable steps to make the desired improvements in my life. I really appreciate how responsive she is and how she checks in on me and helps me with accountability.

Tammy has been by far the best counselor so far. She LISTENS. She UNDERSTANDS. She GETS ME! I can tell she takes what she does seriously and feels like she cares
