Welcome   

Parenting in today’s world can be challenging and hectic, especially if you are the parents of children with special needs. Despite your best efforts to support your family, it’s possible to get stuck in negative cycles of interactions that cause disconnect and stress.

I know that, as a parent, you are doing the very best you can. The good news is you don’t have to go through this alone—help is available. Working with an experienced child psychologist, who has extensive experience in working with children with autism and other special needs, can equip your family with tools to be happier and more at ease.

My specialties are:

I offer gentle, safe, collaborative and strength-based sessions. Here, we can identify problems and practice solutions that decrease stress, improve your relationship with your child(ren) and unpack why unhelpful behaviors have developed and progressed. With an emphasis on self-care and compassion, I can help you understand your child’s development and what you need to support yourself and your family in new, effective ways.

I provide individualized, age-appropriate skills to kids, adolescents and parents. With the right guidance, it’s possible to become the confident, supportive parent you wish to be. It’s also possible to restore peace and calm in your household.

Who is Tyra Vickers?

Tyra Vickers, PhD

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.
