About Barbara Becker Holstein
From tweens...to teens, right into womanhood. I have been a positive psychologist in private practice for over twenty five years. In the course of working with my clients, I originated the idea of THE ENCHANTED SELF, a positive psychology therapy where I teach people how to recognize and utilize their strengths, talents, skills and even lost potential.
I teach and educate about happiness and how to benefit from positive psychology in ways that let us lead lives of meaning and happiness. Thank you for stopping by. -Dr Barbara
