Travis Herbert MSW
Sometimes life is hard and it can be difficult to figure out the path forward. Travis believes that one of the greatest gifts in life is working through hard times and coming out the other side with a better understanding of yourself in the process. He has witnessed therapeutic relationships lead to transformative and lasting positive change in the lives of young people and adults. If we decide that working together is a good fit, Travis is committed to supporting your journey so that you may find your path toward healing and growth.
Travis’ style is direct, collaborative and strengths based. Drawing from over 20 years of experience working with children and adults in a variety of settings, his therapeutic practice is informed by traditional talk therapy modalities such as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) alongside less traditional approaches including spending time outdoors, hiking, adventure-based activities, movement and art.
“The present moment contains past and future. The secret of transformation is in the way we handle this very moment.” Thich Nhat Hanh
