TAMMY G. DAUGHTRY Masters Marriage and Family TherapyFounder, Co-parenting International

As a native of Denver, Colorado, Tammy has a personal passion for children impacted by divorce and remarriage. She is the founder of Co-Parenting International, an organization launched in 2003 to help divorced parents raise healthy kids. She is a national author of “Co-parenting Works! Helping Your Children Thrive After Divorce” (HarperCollins 2011) and has extensive media experience with radio, television and professional seminars on the matter of co-parenting and its impact on children. Personally, Tammy is divorced and was a single mom for many years; she has been a co-parent raising a daughter “between two homes” since 2001. She remarried in 2009 and is now happily raising a blended family that is her pride and joy! She is deeply vested in the Donelson-Hermitage area as she has lived here for over 17 years and is proud to call it home!

Tammy is certified to administer the Prepare/Enrich Assessment, a valuable tool for pre-marital work and she enjoys working with first time marriages as well as blended family marriages. She and Jay work with couples in co-therapy and find that this is especially helpful for step couples.

Tammy has been on the YMCA Board of Directors, the International Committee for the YMCA, the Program Director for the NAACC, a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and volunteers for many local organizations. Currently she is also a member of the Mid-Cumberland Council on Children and Youth/Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth, the GMA and the Class of 2018 for Leadership Donelson-Hermitage; she is passionate about working with other organizations that further community collaboration!
