Travis brings a collaborative and warm approach when working with clients from various socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds. He embraces the view that people are inherently good, but that life events can cause us to become stuck in potentially harmful loops that impact ourselves and others. Therapeutic guidance empowers us to find which doors to walk through that will disrupt maladaptive patterns and help the person relinquish distorted thoughts, learn from challenging emotions, and ultimately thrive. Travis is excited to walk with you on this part of your healing journey.
Travis’ pre- and post-doctoral clinical practice has involved working with adults, parents and youth within community-based organizations as well as elementary, middle, and high-school sites located in the Bay Area, California. Travis has spent over 5 years working with a range of at-risk youth and adults who have complex trauma, behavioral issues, adjustment challenges, depression symptoms, and anxiety. He has facilitated multiple therapeutic groups, including teen gaming groups to aid in socialization, parenting support and empowerment groups to reduce stress and promote compassionate communication, and case manager/provider support groups aimed at encouraging healthier interactions among agency staff and the clients they serve.
