"I go to nature to be soothed and healed and to have my senses put in tune once more"
Travis Moore, LPC
Travis Moore is the owner and founder of Campfire Counseling. He started the organization in 2018 in order to share the therapeutic benefits of the outdoors with clients in North Texas. Travis approaches counseling with a unique perspective, and whenever possible, he tries to integrate forms of creative counseling into his sessions. He often meets with his clients outdoors and offers walk-and-talk sessions at local parks and nature preserves. Travis also integrates outdoor experiential therapy activities like fly fishing and equine facilitated learning to facilitate processing and encourage the development of new coping skills. He currently meets with clients in Dallas, Rockwall, and Poetry, TX.
Counseling Outside of the Box
Therapy does not necessarily have to take place in an office building. Sometimes getting some fresh air can help clients open up and deepen their therapeutic experience.
Horses are extremely sensitive to changes in humans, providing instant insight into the client's thoughts and feelings. Equine sessions are provided in partnership with Aisling Equine Therapy.
Get in the Flow
My goal in an on the water session is to provide clients with a challenging and meaningful experience that will lead to an increase in mindfulness and self-awareness. I currently offer these sessions at Fish Poetry in Poetry, TX.
Retreats and Overnights
This project is still in development, but it is a goal of mine to apply outdoor experiential therapy techniques in overnight settings with individuals, couples, and families. Camp is a great place for a parent and child to find peace and pursue change.
A Unique Approach to Counseling
What To Expect
Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive thinking and the adoption of new attitudes and outlooks. I try to integrate outdoor experiential practices into my sessions in order to enhance the therapeutic experience and increase clients self awareness and mindfulness. I often work with adolescents and young adults who face difficult challenges as they transition into the "real world". My goal is to help clients cultivate mindfulness and self confidence so they can navigate the transitional turbulence of life with a positive outlook.
Since 2015, I have provided patients in North Texas with a wide range of counseling services to suit their needs. Please see the sections below to learn about my unique approach to counseling and some of the out side of the box options for therapy sessions.
