Survivors to Thrivers Founder Tambry Harris

Tambry’s experiences, concepts and heart shine light into the darkness that surrounds sexual abuse.

Tambry is a spiritual director and life coach who helps others claim their best selves and lives. This involves clients looking at their innate character, personal obstacles, and deepest desires to intentionally embrace their whole selves.

Her twenty years of coaching and eight years of spiritual direction translate into her work with survivors of sexual abuse and domestic violence through the Going Forward: Survivors to Thrivers (GFS2T) organization.

Tambry believes her Masters in Applied Psychology and certifications in the areas of Leadership Coaching, Spiritual Direction, Change Management, and Diversity provide a grounded foundation to serve these beautiful souls.  She guides survivors to examine limiting beliefs, find strength in their unique gifts and abilities, and claim a wholehearted, meaningful life.

Tambry was recently named Mecklenburg Times 50 Most Influential Women of 2021 for the transformation work she does locally and nationally.

It takes a team to initiate the kind of change we want to see in the world. Below you can find out more about the people that are instrumental in creating change.
