He has extensive pastoral and clinical training in biblical and clinical theology and counseling credentials in areas:  Individual, Couple, Emotional and Marriage & Family counseling. He served 24 years as active duty Army Chaplain with military training in Regional Medical Centers as: a senior clinician in the military chaplaincy and practiced as a clinical therapist on active duty as a Christian pastoral counselor.  He served overseas and in US in several Army Medical Centers as a Behavioral Mental Health clinician and provided Chaplaincy and healthcare services to military men and women and their families.   He has seen both sides of the fields of counseling.  This uniquely qualifies Dr. Travis to provide the best Christian counseling services to individuals and families in Knoxville and surrounding communities.
