Dr. Shannon Tassava

(PhD)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with many years of experience as a therapist, wellness coach, and self-help author. I utilize a flexible therapy approach that combines empathy with cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused strategies to help individuals work through difficulties and feel more empowered and fulfilled in their daily lives. Although I work with many types of clients, both men and women, I have a specialty in women's issues, with particular expertise in the areas of health/wellness, self-care, adjustment to motherhood, depression, anxiety, stress management, body image, eating disorders, and weight loss.

In my work as a therapist, I value my clients' own goals and desires for counseling, while bringing my professional expertise, ideas, and strategies to the table.

Dr. Tassava is the best counselor I've ever had. She offers me real-life techniques and tools to handle my anxiety and stress. She has never once judged me for any of my issues and has honestly supported me through the most difficult time in my life. Over the past few months, with her support and guidance, I have been able to change my thinking, reacting and how I handle major anxiety and stress. I am so thankful for her. Not only has she changed my life for the better... honestly, she's saved my life.

So far I'm happy with the service. I've been using phone and messaging and am so happy with the help I've been getting. Dr Tassava is very kind, empathetic, knowledgeable and knows just where to meet me in my path to recovery.

I think Dr. Tassava has been a big part of my success in staying positive while going through medical challenges. I would have been lost without her guidance.

Dr. Tessava has been a great help. She understands my issues and provides the level of help I need, letting me think through and solve my problems myself. She also is very respectful of the way I have chosen to communicate with her.

I think Dr. Tassava is wonderful. She is great with follow ups, gives pretty quick responses, informs me of changes to her availability, is patient and very understanding. I would absolutely recommend her for anyone who needs counseling.

Written by M.E. on May 21, 2018 after counseling with Shannon for 2 weeks on issues concerning family, trauma and abuse, and sleeping

Dr. Tassava's insight was completely on point. She is encouraging, helpful, and open, helping me to unpack my issues and create actionable, attainable goals for myself (that she then supported). I had been putting off seeing a therapist for so long, and I'm so grateful for BetterHelp and Dr. Tassava for giving me an online platform to seek help on. I'm so much more comfortable with this :)

Dr. Tassava is amazing. For the first time in my life, I actually feel that I've found the help that I needed. She is very supportive and thoughtful. She actually really cares. I couldn't ask for a better therapist. She is the best.

Dr. Tassava has made such a huge difference in my life! She has been patient and gentle with me and very empathetic. All things I need to be able to trust and open up. I'm finally starting to feel that I'm on the right track and I have less bad days and more good ones thanks to her advice and amazing words. When I started reaching out to her, I was so high anxiety that I wasn't functioning in my every day life. I can function at work and at home and I feel like I will be ok thanks to her! She is an amazing counselor and I'm so thankful I was matched with her!
