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.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Eating disorders

Dr. Tassava is fantastic! During a time that is difficult for us all, she has been so supportive and validating of all the many emotions I have. We have talked about a variety of issues during a short time, and she has already helped me so much. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience that many could benefit from!
I highly recommended Dr. Tassava. She is very compassionate, and at the same time has a way of gently nudging you to do the work you need to do to grow and solve the issues that made you seek counseling in the first place.
I feel that Dr. Tassava really understands my issues and is able to provide me with a variety of resources that help me with the particular methods I've chosen. I really am getting a lot out of this experience.
Dr. Tassava has been extremely helpful in giving me tools to understanding myself. I have had quick responses and feedback. I have hope that I can make some positive changes in my thinking.
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.

She’s simply the best; better than all the rest! And I’m not just singing that.

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.
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!
