Travis McKie-Voerste, PhD
Owner - ThisLife Counseling
Georgia Licensed Professional Counselor - LPC006978
Approved Clinical Supervisor - ACS# 3061
Experienced. Certified. Supportive.
I have worked in the helping professions since 2005 and have been a counselor since 2009. I have a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision from the University of Georgia, an Education Specialist degree in Psychology and Counseling with a Mental Health Counseling concentration from Arkansas State University, and a Bachelors of Science degree in Applied Psychology from Bemidji State University.
My counseling approach is grounded in personal construct theory, in practice this means that I work to understand my clients experience and facilitate change from within that context. I rely on techniques from multiple evidence based approaches, especially Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
I am happy to talk with you briefly on the phone before you commit to an initial appointment to tell you more about my approach, or answer questions you may have. I look forward to working with you!
I have a Master of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor’s in Child and Family Studies from the University of Tennessee. I have been working with families since 2005 and have been in a counseling role since 2011. My background is in working with families, career change, and people with disabilities. I take a holistic approach to treatment and believe in taking what you need from a variety of sources. I utilize evidence-based methods based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

I have a Master of Arts in cuddles from Duke University. I was born in 2020 and am working towards becoming a therapy dog. I love meeting new people, but am still working on not jumping up on them. Currently I may hang out in the room during online appointments, but hope to join up for some in-person appointments soon.
