Meet Our Founder

Tyra Rowell has expertise in counseling and ministering to personal issues that may have resulted from broken childhoods, dysfunctional relationships, life circumstances, and etc. Personal issues can also result from an internal factor such as a person’s temperament. Temperament, in simple terms, is the inborn (not genetic, i.e. brown hair, blue eyes, etc.) part of man that determines how he reacts to people, places and things. In short, it is how people interact with their environments and the world around them. Temperament pinpoints our perception of ourselves and the people who love us. It is also the determining factor in how well we handle the stresses and pressures of life. Tyra believes each person is created in God’s image and can only feel complete by having a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
