Dr. Zoe Shaw is a passionate practitioner in the field of Clinical Psychology. She is licensed as a psychotherapist and divides her time between her family life, clinical practice, virtual life, and relationship coaching, speaking, writing and hosting her podcast, The Dr. Zoe Show. Dr. Zoe holds a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University, a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from UCLA, where she also competed as a sprinter and hurdler. Her initial areas of research were in forming a racial identity for African Americans raised in non ethnic congruent environments. Her work has branched out over the years, with her current main areas of study and treatment surrounding women’s issues, specifically superwoman syndrome, the development of self in a post feminist era and women in difficult relationships. These issues are very close to her heart as she is a busy wife to actor Stan Shaw and mother of five (one with special needs and two launched), homeschooling her youngest in addition to her work life. Believing as she does in a holistic approach to life, Dr. Zoe also balances her life with athleticism, competing on the USAA Master’s track and field team as a Sprinter. Dr. Zoe has been sought out as an expert and published in Oprahmag.com, Prevention Magazine, Voyage LA Magazine, and the Los Angeles APA magazine discussing issues relevant to women and psychology. Dr. Zoe has presented at the National APA Convention regarding racial identity development and has been a keynote speaker for various engagements, including the NAACP and U.S. Navy. She is currently writing her memoir.
