Pyinstaller No Module Tkinter

I have created a python script using Tkinter and am trying to package it using a Mac with Pyinstaller. Pyinstaller creates the executable but when I try to run it says the Tkinter module is missing. I realize there are several similar questions like this on SO but none of the solutions have worked for me.

Here is the top of my main.py script:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import sys
import os
import traceback
import json
import time
import Tkinter

Here is my pyinstaller version:

$ pyinstaller --version
3.3.dev0+483c819

I run pyinstaller with this command:

$ pyinstaller main.py 

Here is the output of that command:

When I run the executable a terminal window opens with the following output:

I have tried running the pyinstaller command with --hidden-import Tkinter but that still does not work. I have checked the pyinstaller docs section "When Things Go Wrong" but still don't see a solution.
