Going Forward: Survivors to Thrivers – Who We Are

Change can be difficult because it means moving from the known to the unknown… even when the known is full of pain and darkness.  We seek to be encouragers for you to take those healthy steps to awaken the light within you and move into a much brighter tomorrow!

We utilize a Three Step Transformation Process to guide you through Awareness, Alignment and Action.

The Awareness Step increases your understanding of your unique talents, motivators, dreams, fears and assumptions.  Survivors often develop limiting beliefs and unhealthy patterns that get in their way of living their best life.  We help you identify yours.

The Alignment Step determines what needs to shift within and around you to foster a clear path forward and a successful trajectory.  This step utilizes a holistic approach (mind, body and spirit) to ensure lasting change.

The Action Step creates goals to navigate your go-forward path including “stretch” actions and new thought patterns leading to extraordinary results and a full, successful, thriving life.

This transformation process is offered through both individual guidance and small group retreats.  

The Awakening the Light book offers another avenue for individual growth supporting you in your home at your own pace.  As you move through the book, you will hear Tambry’s voice gently encouraging you as she shares her journey and invites you to look at yours.

At Survivors to Thrivers, we know how critical it is to have a strong community supporting you, especially when many survivors do not find needed support with their families or friend groups.  That is why we offer weekly posts on Instagram and Facebook to send encouraging words and thoughts to you as you navigate your week.

Our personal growth is truly a journey and not a destination.  That is why we offer blogs twice a month to encourage you to continue to nurture your growth.  On the first of the month, we offer inspirational stories or insights.  On the fifteenth of the month, we provide exercises for you to continue your mind, body, and spirit healing journey.  Once a quarter we bring a fresh perspective with our Thriver Blogs so you can hear the voices of others who are moving from surviving to thriving.
