Cassandra Rasmussen, PsyD, is a psychologist at UT Health East Texas Behavioral Health at North Campus Tyler helping patients 15 years and older understand how our mental and emotional states affect various aspects of our lives. Dr. Rasmussen has a special interest in helping patients with weight loss, medical rehabilitation, sports performance and trauma recovery. “I aim to act as a guide to my patients using evidence-based practices and current research. Patients very often hold the answers; sometimes they simply need help finding them,” she said. “I will gently challenge my patients to dig deeper while reassuring them they are psychologically safe in the moment and not alone.”

Dr. Rasmussen chose to pursue psychology because regardless of life’s outcomes, our mental/emotional/spiritual life will dictate our perception. “This perception alters the way we interact with others in relationships and with ourselves. I aim to teach patients how to become more self-aware to make the changes necessary to support their goals.” Dr. Rasmussen is dedicated to helping others maximize their potential, heal and create their dream life stating, “let’s ask why and problem solve together.”

When not seeing patients, she enjoys reading, hiking, travelling and looking for adventures with her husband and sons.

Dr. Rasmussen is employed as a clinical faculty physician at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler under the UT Tyler School of Medicine.
