Hello! I'm Dr. Barbara Ford Shabazz. Since graduating with a B.A. in Psychology, and earning an M.A. in Counseling and a Doctoral degree in Psychology (Psy.D.), I have spent over 20 years working with clients in therapy and students in the classroom. As a wife, mother, daughter, friend, and professional, I can identify with many of your challenges. 

While I enjoy that work, I have more recently been drawn to the field of positive psychology. After teaching many of the concepts in the classroom, experiencing pivotol personal life experiences, and subsequent training with the Coaching and Positive Psychology (CaPP) Institute, I can attest to the value of the tools that I have used and the benefit that they can be for you. 

Because life isn't always linear, we are often faced with unexpected difficulties. When life throws us a curve ball, the work of course-correcting is not always easy. My goal is to help you maximize your strengths and take the next step in your personal development. Thank you for taking the time to consider me as your life coach. I’d love the opportunity to work with you!
