Professional statement

Travis Tanner, LCSW is a licensed therapist in New York City. He specializes in working with emerging adults and adults across the lifespan. Additionally, he works with LGBTQ+ individuals, people in ethical non-monogamous (ENM) relationships and people in kink and BDSM communities. Most of Travis's clients have demanding positions in life, but difficulties such as anxiety, depressed mood or problems with motivation and concentration have held them back from fully thriving.

Travis uses a number of therapy approaches, including prolonged exposure, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and motivational interviewing. He is passionate about science-based treatment and believes that therapy should produce measurable and meaningful results. Additionally, Travis’s style is trauma-informed. He is both empathic and direct about trauma and helps his clients unravel the connections between previous trauma and current challenges in life.

Travis believes that connection with your therapist is a crucial ingredient for success, so he provides free consultation calls as an opportunity to get acquainted and see if you feel potential for that connection. He looks forward to speaking with you.
