Farzaneh Bascom

LMHC

About me

I am a licensed mental health counselor located in Washington with over 5 years’ experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, mood disorder, self-harm, trauma.
Prior to counseling I was an educator over 13 years. Majority of my teaching years were with middle school and high school aged students. Working as an educator presented me with an opportunity to learn about developmental stages of children, cognitively, emotionally, and mentally.
As a counselor, I provide a peaceful and compassionate presence, while enthusiastically facilitating the discovery of inner wisdom ad strength needed to move forward. Relationships connect us to ourselves and others, and the quality of these connections greatly impacts overall sense of well-being and ability to meet life’s challenges gracefully. I believe that we are most likely to consider change in life when we feel understood and supported and my goal is to provide that understanding and support. I have extensive experience working with individual who, in a desperate attempt to gain control over their life and overwhelming emotions, often resort to behaviors which can actually make things worse. With open/honest and direct communication, we will work to identify and overcome barriers and improve your life one step at a time.

I look forward working with you.

She listens to us as individuals and has a warm demeanor to her.

Farzaneh saw right through to my soul. In only two sessions she identified several of my problems and picked up on things I wasn't even aware of.

She has focused me in the right direction and has provided insight into myself that I never thought possible.

I wish I had started this sooner, Farzaneh is extremely good at what she does and could have saved me a lot of heartbreak and pain had I come to therapy sooner.

Farzaneh just has the right answers… I mean, she just knows what I need and gives me helpful advice. She is very knowledgeable about her field. I feel that she really cares about what I am dealing with, which happens to be grief in my case… and I have depression too… anyways, I’m glad that I ended up with such a caring therapist.

Farzaneh Bascom has been extremely instrumental in helping me de-construct some issues I have carried around for years. She is an excellent listener who has amazing recall for details that I have shared with her. She has offered invaluable insights that have really helped me come to terms with some of the issues I have wanted to work on.

Farzaneh is a compassionate therapist who engages and makes one feel safe! She leads communication by listening and follows-up with validation of what she heard, and that to me is invaluable! Validity that my sharing matters!

We've only had like 2-3 sessions so I don't feel like I can make an accurate review. But thus far, I feel listened to and supported by my counselor. I genuinely look forward to further interactions

Farzaneh has a high skill level in dealing with my problems. She offers sound, realistic advice. She encouraged me to text her with updates and not hold everything in until our next session. I highly recommend Farzaneh!

Ms. Farzaneh is amazing! She has helped me out so much and I’ve only had 2 sessions with her. She just lets me vent and helps me understand all my feelings. She never tries to push me past my limits and she helps me prioritize what I need to work on. She’s an amazing woman, 10/10 would recommend.

Since starting my journey on better self understanding and recognizing harmful behavioral patterns, Farzaneh has been a guiding light. Her expertise goes very far and is very apparent. I may not know exactly what my future holds, but I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Farzaneh helped set me on a better course and continues to do as such at this time. Everything is very appreciated and I thank you again!

This has helped my husband and I love it because it works with our schedule the best. We are able to do homework during the week and then message our counselor if we have questions. Then we have our weekly session.
