for cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers
Bambi Lassen is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and has been serving CCS clients, caregivers and family members since January of 2008. Counseling sessions are by appointment only. Please call our office at 255-2301 to schedule an appointment and learn about our services.
Lassen is honored to be a part of the CCS team and continues to work part-time at Sandpoint Psychotherapy and Associates as a clinician with children, teens, adults, and families. She specializes in giving cancer patients and family members Cognitive Behavioral and Mindfulness tools to reduce anxiety and increase affect tolerance. She provides a safe place to explore the many emotions cancer brings to individuals, family members, and caregivers. Lassen also specializes in guiding clients through the grief process.
Lassen grew up on a cattle farm in Sagle, Idaho and attended Sandpoint High School, where she was active in sports and graduated as valedictorian. She earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Oregon and went on to obtain a master’s degree in social work from Portland State University in June of 2004. She has been practicing as a clinician since 2005. In 2009, she took her training even further by completing the requirements and being certified as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Lassen's training, along with extensive work in counseling and time spent volunteering with a local hospice program, instilled in her a deep understanding of human behavior and developmental experiences. We are thrilled that Lassen moved back to Sandpoint to give back to her home community, and grateful for her incredible dedication to the mission of CCS!
