Our Story:

Like many of us, Tamika has faced many obstacles-depression, 

family feuds, work woes- but found the power to push past the 

pain with support from her mentors and her faith in God. Through encouragement, empowerment, and purpose-planning with spiritual guidance, Tamika was able to triumph over her trials. In life, we all face difficulties, but it's not about the challenges but how you turn your obstacles into opportunities by overcoming them. 


Those seeming setbacks transformed into a setup for Tamika to support other women who need guidance in unlocking their fullest potential and purpose for their life. Tamika leveraged her life lessons and psychology-savvy to create Couture Coaching.
