Who is Tyra Vickers?
I grew up outside of Chicago, Illinois, and I still enjoy going back every summer to visit my grandparents’ farm. After going to college and working in St. Louis, Missouri, I moved to Colorado in 2005 to attend graduate school at University of Denver. I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with children as a school psychologist, and I am excited to bring my skills to a private practice setting.
As a child who grew up with an older sister with special needs, I understand on a deep level the stresses that many children, parents and families are facing in today’s world. I value self-care and personal growth, as my own journey has taken me from grief and loss to balance and peace. I find retreating to nature the best form of rejuvenation, especially hiking and camping with my husband and dog.
