Today (march 4th) I had my last session with Travis and I wanted to write an honest review of my experience with him in case it might help anyone.
Back in Oct 2020, I felt like I was at rock bottom. I was 22 years old. Fortunately, I had a job but I was deeply unsatisfied, many sleepless nights, addicted to masturbation and porn, video games, TV, eating junk food, social media, self-comparison, low self-esteem, etc. I was depressed and felt like I didn’t have a purpose. I spent my days alone with nonstop negative thoughts and had no energy at all to do anything.
I had never done therapy before and I was pretty hesitant at first. I felt like I could figure it out myself and do it on my own. I mean, there’s Google and YouTube right? But no matter how much I kept reading or watching, I never had any lasting change. I was deeply frustrated with myself. I didn’t know what to do anymore and was pretty desperate.
I Googled some places for therapy and fortunately, I linked up with Travis.
Guys, this dude really changed my life.
If I had to describe what it was like, then it was like a two man book club and we’d nerd out like mad haha
All of the conversations I had with this guy was super fun, interesting, and eye-opening.
What I really appreciated about him was how human our interactions felt. Whenever we’d talk, he actually respect my own opinions and never judged them. He didn’t act like a therapist who was trying to solve a problem, he felt like a friend.
He was able to ask the right questions at the right time and helped me realize that I had so many distorted thoughts and that my logic was messed up.
Plus, he was always able to explain his reasoning in a way that made sense to me. He’d provide references and additional materials to help guide me. This just shows that he really knows and understands what he’s talking about.
I can tell he does his job because he genuinely cares and wants to make a difference for people. Rather than for just the money. He’s honest with me on the things he’s still working on himself and how he’s applying what he preaches. This dude even partook in the challenges I set for myself and read books again he had already read just so we could do it together.
As of March 4th, I feel like I have a purpose in life now thanks to guy. I’m not 100% miraculously cured of all suffering and negative thoughts. But at least I understand WHY I experience what I experience and what I can do about it. At least I have a purpose. At least I know where I stand, how I got here, and where I’m going now. Guys, if I hadn’t met up with Travis, then I honestly would’ve continued to be lost and miserable. Things probably would’ve gotten a lot worse for me.
If you read this far and you’ve been feeling hesitant like me to reach out for help, then dude, just go for it. If you have the opportunity to work with Travis, then know that he is the man. It’s better to spend money and get help (even if it feels like a lot) and have the chance that you actually change your life for years to come rather than to continue trying to expect a different result and fail doing the same thing by yourself for the rest of your life.
Travis is fantastic! I wasn't sure how remote therapy would work for me at first, but he's made the process easy; he's flexible in terms of messaging preferences, and he's always incredibly responsive.
He's smart, insightful, funny and authentic, and he's seriously been the most helpful counselor I've ever had. He listened to my concerns and my goals in the beginning, and he's worked with me since then to establish ways to help build myself out of the unhealthy patterns I'd found myself stuck in.
I'm able to say that I'm in a better place lately than I was when I first started seeing Travis, and it's in no small part due to the help and advice I've received from him.
Travis is wonderful. I always feel heared respected, and safe when talking to him. It’s easy to tell he’s passionate about the work he’s doing and has a genuine care for the person he’s working with. Having him as a counselor has been extremely helpful for me, and I’m excited to continue working with him.
