Integral Life Coaching

Meet Shabnam

“Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”

Nelson Mandela

I was born and raised in Tehran, experiencing the Iranian Revolution of 1979 firsthand. In 2004 I immigrated to the United States, where I now work as a passionate life coach and a writer. I offer one-on-one coaching sessions as well as workshops for groups. On the journey of self-growth, my focus is on Integral coaching practices that help others to see their strength and capabilities in all different areas of their lives and actualize more of their potential for a deeper connection to life. As an author, I also teach memoir writing workshops and has been performing lectures to colleges and interviews with podcasts about my memoir, My Persian Paradox, and the concept of sharing stories. As a coach, I am a compassionate listener when people don’t feel safe to share their stories with the world; I will help my clients in searching to bring out their hidden gems through their stories.

I actively and curiously learn about the subjects of human growth and self-development. I search and learn from the latest scientific tools on human psychology and biology as well as the traditional wisdom and the stories from all around the world. I believe there is a piece of The Truth of this life in every story. Collectively, stories hold the ultimate Truth. We can create a safe world together!

I live in Virginia with my husband and two dogs.

My motto is, “Let’s share our stories. Love is the answer!”

  1. Hi Shabnam, yes indeed, I’m trying to figure out my direction. I feel a need to share some details of my life the same as you. I came to the conclusion I must leave word of my legacy for my family. Documenting what we have done may be inspiration to another. John.

  2. John, thank you for visiting! I can’t agree more. I believe in sharing our words with others. when it comes from our hearts, it goes directly to other’s hearts and we make a heart to heart connection. Life is about love! Hope to see you around!

  3. wishing you joy & success with all your endeavors ❤
