Tamra has her Master's Degree in Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary where she also received
the Lucy Mabrey Counseling Award from the Department of Counseling.
She is a member of AACC and board certified by NBCC.
Tamra has completed Level 2 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy
and uses the Gottman method for marriage counseling.
Tamra has a heart for helping those who are hurting by walking along with them as they navigate a sometimes painful season of life. She is especially passionate about marriages and is committed to helping marriages grow stronger, encouraging those who are facing difficulties, and fighting for those who have lost hope. In addition to marriage, Tamra loves to help those who have been abused as children and she understands the unique challenges they may face in adulthood. Our childhood impacts our perspective of life, relationships, and even the development of our brains. When someone has encountered childhood abuse they often struggle in relationships as adults. Therefore Tamra desires to help bring healing to their past in order to have thriving relationships in their present.
In addition to her counseling services, Tamra loves teaching. Tamra has been an adjunct professor teaching a dual enrollment Introduction to Psychology class for Adrian College and she taught a Bible class for Lenawee Christian high school on marriage and family for over 6 years. However, one of her favorite things to teach are Bible classes at her church, Grace Point EFC, where her husband is the Lead pastor.
In addition to her counseling and teaching, Tamra is also available for speaking engagements. Whether it be a MOPS group, church luncheon, or retreat, Tamra loves to share what the Lord is teaching her through His word and her life experiences. Please contact Restoration Counseling if you would be interested in having Tamra speak for your group! Some of Tamra's topics include, Keeping the Marriage Strong, Communication, Understanding our worth and value, as well as teaching through books of the Bible or Biblical topics.
