Travis Atkinson, a pioneering figure in the field of schema therapy, is the visionary founder of the Schema Therapy Training Center of New York. With a deep passion for advancing the practice of schema therapy, Travis has played a pivotal role in shaping its development and dissemination worldwide. As one of the original founders of the International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST) and serving as Media Coordinator from 2014 to 2020, Travis has been instrumental in establishing schema therapy as a recognized and respected therapeutic approach.

Having collaborated closely with Jeff Young, the esteemed founder of schema therapy, Travis made significant contributions to the early stages and evolution of Schema Therapy for Couples. Recognizing the importance of providing standardized and comprehensive training, Travis worked alongside Jeff Young in creating and developing the first international training program in schema therapy. Their collaborative efforts laid the foundation for today’s structured and evidence-based training programs in schema therapy.

Driven by a commitment to excellence and a desire to empower therapists with the knowledge and skills of schema therapy, Travis established the Schema Therapy Training Center of New York. With a focus on providing high-quality training programs, the center serves as a hub for professionals seeking to deepen their understanding and practice of schema therapy. Under Travis’s leadership, the center has gained recognition as a premier institution for schema therapy training, attracting participants from around the world who seek to enhance their therapeutic effectiveness and positively impact their clients’ lives.
