Mary A. Travis, PhD

Credentials and degrees : 
PhD Human Development EdS School Psychology MA Human Development CPC Certified Professional Coach
Description: 
I specialize in Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors including Trichotillomania. This has been the focus of my counseling practice for 14 years. I am a professional member of the Trichotillomania Learning Center (TLC). I have completed the TLC Scientific Advisory Board Training program. I have written a self-help book DIY (Do It Yourself) Trichotillomania Toolkit available on Amazon. I am also a licensed and certified school psychologist. As such I am able to diagnose difficulties with learning and attention, anxiety and depression - which often coincide and contribute to the BFRB.
Treatment methods: 
My treatment is tailored to the needs of the individual. I generally use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) with teens and adults. I have found that younger clients and parents of "Baby Trichsters" benefit most from a stand alone CBT course of treatment.
