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. I have a specialty in women's issues and women's health, with particular expertise in the areas of depression, anxiety, wellness and self-care, health behaviors, adjustment to motherhood, stress management, body image, eating disorders, and weight loss.

I’ve been working with Dr. Shannon for about two years and she has been so supportive and understanding and gives very good advice. I’ve come a long way since I started meeting with her. I don’t know what I would do without her!

Dr Shannon, is a great fit for me. She is the second BH counselor and I wish she was assigned to me first. She is professional and really listens to her patients.

I have nothing but high praise for Dr. Tassava. I was on the verge of losing my job when I first started working with her. Things couldn't be more different a year later. I will always be grateful <3

There are so many wonderful things I could say about Dr. Tassava. She is caring and compassionate and insightful. I think the best thing I could say about her is that I would and have recommended her to friends and family. She is a great listener, but beyond that she helps you work through and move beyond the issues. I can honestly say that my life as a whole is better because of her help.
