Tammy first came to Dr. Phil in 2011 looking for help controlling her self-described anger issues, especially when it came to dealing with her daughters: Tatiana, 15, and Tameeka, 13.
Now, five years later, Tammy says she has curbed her anger – but she says she feels like she’s now lost her oldest daughter, Tatiana, who is now 20.
“It saved my life, but my two girls have taken two different paths,” Tammy says of how life changed following her first appearance on Dr. Phil.

While Tammy says Tameeka went from a teen struggling in school to a young woman who is now excited to start college, she says Tatiana’s life took a much different path.
“Things changed for Tatiana when she would not go back to school for her senior year,” Tammy explains. “I gave her three options: get a job, get a volunteer position or she could do anything towards education. She left that day and never came home again.”
