He specializes in working with emerging adults and adults across the life span who have social anxiety, specific phobias, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). The majority of Travis’s clients are in high demand positions in life, but anxiety and worry hold them back from fully thriving.
