Travis Stewart has been mentoring others since 1992 and became a Licensed Professional Counselor in 2005. His counseling approach is relational and creative, helping people understand their story while also building hope for the future.
Travis has experience with a wide variety of issues which might lead people to seek out professional counseling help. This includes special interest in helping those with compulsive and addictive behaviors such as internet and screen addiction, eating disorders, anxiety and perfectionism.
Specifically, he has worked with eating disorders since 2003 and has learned from many of the field’s leading experts. He has worked with hundreds of individuals facing life-threatening eating disorders in all levels of treatment. Because of the complex nature of eating disorders he has experience with the following:
- Anorexia, Bulimia, Emotional Eating, Binge Eating
- Body image
- Family and communication issues
- Identity development
- Life decisions
- Spirituality and faith
He was the visionary for the annual Hungry for Hope Conference, a Christian based conference which provides training and help for both professionals and lay people in the treatment of eating disorders. An excellent communicator and teacher, Travis is a regular consultant to FINDINGbalance and has spoken at schools such as Pepperdine University, Baylor, Washington University, and graduate schools and seminaries on the topic of eating disorders and body image. He was also a presenter at an international conference on eating disorders in 2008 in Budapest, Hungary.
Travis graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1991 with a degree in advertising and immediately began working with the international ministry of The Navigators, mentoring students. After 8 years, his desire to better understand how people change, and through his own experience of receiving help from a professional counselor, Travis decided to return to school. He earned a Master of Arts in Counseling (2001) and a Master of Arts in Theological Studies (2003), both from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis, MO. Travis is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Missouri.
