Parenting in today’s world can be challenging and hectic. Despite your best efforts to support your family, it’s possible to get stuck in negative cycles of interactions that cause disconnect and stress.

Who is Tyra Vickers?

Tyra Vickers, PhD

I grew up outside of Chicago, Illinois. 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 enjoyed working with children as a school psychologist for 12 years, and decided to start my private practice in 2018.

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.
