My Services

As a practicing school counselor, educator for over 36 years, an advanced trainer in the Nurtured Heart model, instructional coach, and with a doctorate that focused on the impact of adult mindsets and actions on youth relationships, I work with parents, students, schools, and agencies to coach each member to be in relationships which focus on building inner wealth and each person’s gifts, rather than energizing problems. Through modeling, direct instruction, and interactive practical activities, I help bring children and adults into a new way of positive energy and interaction.
I have trained schools and presented nationally to hundreds of educators, adult learners and families seeking to bring out the best version of their students and children daily. For a full list of references, please feel free to contact me directly at
Beginning with the parent(s) as the significant adult, I coach and counsel to empower and acknowledge inner wealth in all members, help correct destructive behaviors, nurture strong, positive relationships, replace patterns of negative attention with positive recognition, and reconnect family to their greatness.

(While change can be seen quickly with some simple, intentional actions, most families benefit from three – six sessions done every other week.)

Rate – hourly $125 (Free 30-minute phone consult introduction included.) Required and suggested reading list to be provided.

Direct instruction to teachers, instructional aides, principals, coaches in adapting the Nurtured Heart Approach and other compatible research-based methods with their students, classes and teaching style. Using modeling, active learning and various presentation tools, educators quickly step into a new way of classroom management which honors the true  capacity of their students

– and the relational power in transforming the critical teacher-student relationship and culture and climate of the schoolhouse.

Two- day, All-day (6 hour) and half-day (3 hour) workshops available, with the greatest success found if additional follow-up coaching, individual classroom observations, and whole group hour presentations are utilized to fine-tune skills.  Tammy has trained hundreds of educators across Washington state, nationally and through national speaking opportunities at professional organizations.  References available upon request!
