The therapy I wish I had 20 years ago
I can't say enough about Travis. In just a few months Travis has helped me understand myself and identify my life patterns in a way that has always eluded me. The perspective he's helped me find is truly a game changer in terms of addressing the psychological obstacles that get in the way of happiness (in all aspects of life). In gaining a different level of awareness and self-acceptance, I'm also far more equip to have the kind of fulfilling and loving relationship I've always wanted.

When you're ready to change, Travis can help
Travis is exceptional. An expert in CBT and schema therapy, Travis has a warm and engaging way of helping you to recognize the patterns at play in your life that are holding you back, and helps you learn how to view and accept life's challenges as manageable. A gentle and watchful presence, Travis keeps you on track and empathizes when you drift. He has helped me immeasurably and I highly recommend him.

Travis will change your life
Travis is simply one of the most gifted emotional guides in the world. He has an incredible ability to understand how and where to help shed light, and explore the hardest places to access in the mind. He is responsible for me being able to finally understand my life, my responses to it, and empowered me to be able to make change where I want to the most. He has altered my life immeasurably for the better.

Exceptionally gifted therapist (we credit him with saving our marriage)
Married for 4 years, my husband & I struggled w/ foundational communication issues & understanding how our "raw" spots trapped us in an unrelenting cycle of anger & blame. Travis came highly recommended through colleagues. My husband was hesitant to "do therapy" & Travis isn't a magician, you have to show up & do the work. His approach & his ability to get to the heart of the matter gave us tools to understand what we need, self-regulate & share openly. Working w/ Travis has been a game changer!

Not that I have a lot of experience with therapists, but it's hard for me to imagine how one could be more innately intuitive, sensitive, and empathetic. This alone though, is not what I understand makes a great therapist. Travis also has a sobering integrity and strict respect for the process of healing. He forces you to face the hard truths and not shirk responsibility for taking them head on. This combination of soft and hard is what I think makes Travis so great, and so perfect for me.

I began seeing Travis three years ago and have undergone an unbelievable transformation during that time. I am so grateful for his guidance and unconditional emotional responsiveness. I recommend him to individuals in my life who have have been in therapy for most of their lives but are still looking to change problematic relationship patterns. I don't know what my life would look like without the work we've done together!

Travis's energy helped us connect right away. Super relaxed which gave off a great vibe during therapy. You can see him thinking about the next step we need to take in order to solve problems. We both enjoyed our time with him.

What a Gem!
Travis is an incredible therapist. He is non-judgmental and has helped me to think about things from a different perspective. I have grown as an individual and have been a better parent because I work with him. I look forward to each session knowing that I am doing the work necessary to be my best self with his guidance.

One of the best therapists
Travis is a highly effective therapist. He is professorial and caring as well. He has helped me to learn how my past impacts my present life and to make sense of what is happening inside. He has also helped me to thrive as a person, a wife and mother. I can't thank him enough. I highly recommend him because I truly believe he is one of the most gifted therapists.
Aug 19, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
My partner and I felt like Travis understood our issues and concerns. We are excited to work with him.

Incredibly effective and professional
I was more than impressed with Travis' skills as a couples counselor. He practices Emotionally Focus Therapy, one of the few modalities proven to be effective as a framework (in most studies, the individual therapist drives the success factor versus the modality). In this approach, the relationship is the patient, not the individuals involved. He helps diagnose triggers and re-frame reactions which I found to be incredibly insightful and useful. I highly recommend him as a therapist.
Jun 22, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis is an empathetic, skilled therapist who is an expert on cognitive behavioral therapy techniques. He's perceptive, and encouraging, and importantly, just a fine human being. My life has changed significantly for the better for having worked with him. I highly recommend him.

Present Perceptive Insightful Inspirational ...and just a wonderful human being with whom to share life's experiences.

Exceptional and Authentic
I'm extremely skeptical.... But I had no choice but to accept this was a professional, my respect was earned not just given. If there is any objective hope that feels authentic at least in my situation this is it. As a clinical professional for over 10 years I have not said this lightly.
Jan 20, 2016https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
First visit gives hope that our situation isn't unique and there are ways to get beyond the rut we have been in for the last year. Travis did a great job keeping us both present and in touch with our feelings
Aug 24, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis has done incredible work for me and my fiance. He has amazing insight and communicates his thoughts clearly. I have seen a number of therapists over the years, and have never had much success. But Travis has worked an incredible and profound change within me in a very short period of time. I would recommend him to any and all persons who want to change their outlook and behavior.

A Caring Counselor
Travis is a compassionate person who brings a lot of insight into your own mind. He understands how the mind works and discovers with you, how to make a better life for yourself.

Good first couples meeting
My husband and I just had our first session with Travis. We found him to be caring and compassionate and intend to continue working with him.

So fortunate to have met Travis
Travis has helped me to change my life in so many ways. Travis has helped me to extricate myself from a bad marriage and has helped me to realize what I truly deserve. Travis has helped me with anxiety, manage the role of single mom and business owner, offers tools and techniques and resources for good physical and emotional health conditions. I am a better, happier and healthier person thanks to Travis. I couldn't imagine what my life would have been life without Travis.
May 1, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis has amazing insight. His ability to perceive the subtle and bring it into the realm of the clear and obvious is just beyond! Thank you.
Mar 24, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
I love working with Travis
He is very detailed with his approach and very calm and easy to talk with. Highly recommend him!!!!!

Patient third party
I have been seeing Travis for quite some time. I'm happy I can afford to do that because he is an incredibly helpful sounding board, and prods you to think about things in a different way than you might think of them yourself. I highly recommend him.
Jan 16, 2015https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis is helping me to recognize my own feelings when they happen, as they happen. This is just the beginning. looking forward to the process.

Travis The Great
Having Travis as my therapist is one of the great gifts I have received in life. He has extraordinary intelligence and empathy. Over the course of a few years has made me understand myself in ways I could never imagine just a few short years ago. Having Travis in my life is like having the very best flashlight on a dark and winding path. He is the best!
Dec 5, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
I've gotten to know myself better.
I appreciate Travis's style of guiding me to know myself better, and to live differently based on that knowledge. I see behaviors in myself that I was sometimes not aware of and, certainly, not appreciative of their effects on my physical and mental health. I appreciate that I have the benefit of his insights, and see the difference they make for me.

Travis is one of the people I most admire
Travis has taught me skills that have changed my life in profound ways. I understand myself and my reactions much better, can consciously alter my moods, and gently side-step counter-productive habits. He taught me how to listen deeply to myself, and also about the neuroscience behind how the brain and nervous system regulates our mood and perceptions. He's a deeply kind person, who taught me to be kinder to myself and others. And he has a very cute dog! You're luck to find Travis.
Oct 10, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
I have worked with Travis for over 7 years. I recommend him to everyone.He has helped me learn so much about myself, romantic relationships, friendships and work relationships. I have learned how to make sense of feelings that pop up for me, understand why I feel them and why they may be getting in the way of building stronger connections with others. Many things that I thought wouldn't be possible in my life truly are.My relationships with others are stronger and more fulfilling b/c of Travis
Sep 15, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
There is a new place within each of us, a place of higher ground. And among those that help us to reach this place are friends, teachers, philosophers, and Travis! Thank you.
May 23, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
I have tried before to describe my journey with Travis, perhaps an misquote from Hesse would be more fitting. "I shall learn from myself, be a pupil of myself; I shall get to know myself...I looked around as if I were seeing the world for the first time."
Apr 14, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Not only does Travis have a knack for empathy but he has a deep understanding of his field. He is both incisive and perceptive as well as extraordinarily patient and kind.
Mar 19, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
I think I hit the jackpot when I found Travis for certain. Having been to several very expensive therapists for several years with very little if any help Travis is like the light you see at the end of the tunnel, there is hope. Thank you Travis for your patience, understanding and for being so compassionate.
Feb 17, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis is able to gently tiptoe into another's mindpsace, rattle a few skeletons, and find a cautious egress with nary a trace, but his impact is profound. Travis sees what few others can and he is insightful, practical, and compassionate. Thank you Travis for all of your help!
Jan 31, 2014https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis has been extremely helpful for the past two sessions. The first session was great to assess my marriage. I felt that the second session (the individual) was great because he got to know me and my background as well as my family's.

Exceptionally Good Therapist
My wife and I had been to many therapists without much success. However, Travis Atkinson got to the substance and root of our conflicts and helped sooth the relationship distress. He's a very helpful, wise, caring, and insightful therapist. He really knows what he is doing in both a sympathetic and scientific way.
Nov 23, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis has transformed my life. Before him I had seen half a dozen psychologists. He was with me before I met my wife and now we are newlyweds. I would not have the healthy, extremely loving relationship I have with her had it not been for the values and positive attitude toward love that Travis helped instill in me. I am forever grateful to have met such an amazing, empathetic, and talented individual at the frontier of his field.
Aug 19, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis and his team are simply wonderful. My first couples session with Reyna left me and my partner feeling good about our relationship and we are looking forward to our future individual and couple sessions with her.
Aug 9, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
It is not possible to simply explain what Travis does...but, he is wise, kind, empathic, and inspired. He is a therapist like none other.
Jun 8, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
I met Travis years ago when I first moved to NYC. That move was very difficult for me and I found myself almost immobilized by fear as I attempted to adjust to the city, To ride the subway alone up to 110th street was almost an impossibility. With Travis help I was able to not only move through those fears, but uncovered within me strength, courage, and care for myself that I can count on to be there to comfort, guide and empower me now as I travel alone anywhere in the world..
Feb 24, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis is not your ordinary therapist. He is uniquely gifted at understanding relationships, human emotions, and their deep underlying causes. And his empathetic careful approach helps you feel comfortable to explore these yourself, like you never have before. If you are lucky enough to spend time with him, you will come to understand that you are in the presence of a very special person. He has made a huge difference in my life.
Feb 13, 2013https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
There is only one Travis!
A friend told me a few years back, "Travis saved my life." This friend wasn't kidding, but it still took me a couple of years to make an appointment. And now, I can say, without a doubt, that Travis is changing mine. He has such overwhelming kindness, empathy, and insight...it is SUCH a gift to work with him. And - honestly - he is the smartest person I have ever met. My life is so much better now in ways I never thought possible. So Travis, THANK YOU!
Nov 13, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis is a remarkable therapist. He is highly attuned and skillful in the fine art of purposeful relationship therapy deftly integrating aspects of attachment theory and affect regulation. He sees what few can.
Aug 10, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis, simply, is a very special and gifted human being. He is truly insightful and compassionate. I learn a great deal from his sharing his wisdom.

My husband and I recently met withTravis and it was a great experience. We were each given the opportunity to speak our part which was really helped.

My husband and I have only seen Christina once so far and she was absolutely fantastic. She was supportive, empathetic, and extremely knowledgeable. We look forward to seeing her again.
May 15, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Highly recommend the Office of Travis Atkinson
Travis Atkinson is a thought-leader in cognitive behavioral therapy and the techniques and guidance provided to me have improved my quality of life significantly. The results of our work together have been dramatic and I highly recommend him.
May 4, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Christina is great!!
This was my first counseling experience, and my fiance and I enjoyed it. Meeting with Christina was a great decision. We felt welcomed and comfortable speaking with her. She listened and gave us great feedback. I really enjoyed my first session and look forward to making more progress in my relationship

Best there is.
Most understanding therapist I've ever had. His style helps reach to the root of feelings emotions and actions without placing blame. It is an incredible healing process for both individuals and couples. I can not recommend Travis highly enough.
Feb 19, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
A great experience!
I wanted to wait until my partner had completed several sessions before writing a review. Travis has been great getting me to analyze myself, slow myself down to prevent over reacting, figuring out how/why I react to certain situations, and learning not to project the past on the present/future. This in turn has produced positive effects in my relationship with my partner as well as those with friends and coworkers. I've been pleasantly surprised!
Jan 30, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Our experience with Travis Atkinson was very positive. Travis was objective and helped both of us to understand the perspective of our partner. Both my partner and I felt the decision to meet with Travis was helpful and strengthened our relationship.
Jan 16, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Life Changing and Relationship Saving!
Travis is the reason my relationship is not only still existent, but thriving! Being cautiously skeptical at first, we wondered if we could really receive the help we needed & learn how to do the work ourselves? I can honestly say, yes! Travis changed our lives for the better & our relationship for the healthier. He is open, understanding, & a great guide to have in learning how to navigate sticky situations without getting stuck. We are extremely grateful & feel lucky to have found him!
Jan 10, 2012https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Travis is simply an amazing person and compassionate therapist.
Through the part year we have worked together, he has shown great understanding and compassion about relationships and people, that is his gift. I want to thank Travis for his unwavering support and kindness that has greatly helped my relationship.
Dec 29, 2011https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
If you are looking for an experienced therapist and one that can emotionally attune with you I would search no longer ,and certainly choose for Travis Atkinson, internationally known for his Couples work and Schema therapy.
Dec 12, 2011https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
Great Way to Go!
I used to see Travis when I lived in NYC but have since moved far away. However, being able to have a session with Travis by phone is a life-saver. It is not as positive as face-to-face, but is far and away superior to not speaking with him at all.
Nov 24, 2011https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30103404
I say this without exaggeration - Travis changed my life. I was one of those people who distrusted how much effect therapy could really have. Yet, I was at a place in my life where something had to change so I reached out to him. His combination of schema therapy, cognitive therapy, and scientific research altered my entire way of looking at the world. I now have a life and career that I love and was always meant to have. Thank you Travis!
