About

Maureen Healy is an award-winning author and leader in the field of children’s emotional health. She writes a popular blog for Psychology Today, and has contributed to the PBS series, This Emotional Life.

Unique about Maureen is her experience working directly with children globally. In 2007, Maureen lived at the Base of the Himalayas and worked with Tibetan refugee children. Her book, Growing Happy Kids, begins with her journey to Asia and being surrounded by monkeys (which really happened!).

Currently, Maureen runs a successful mentoring program for highly sensitive children (link). She loves to guide sensitive boys and girls no matter where they live (in-person or remotely). In addition, Maureen recently completed an SEL (social and emotional learning) curriculum for K-8 students, which she’s also teaching in select schools.

Along with 15+ years of global experience, Maureen has a BA in Psychology and an MBA from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. She has also completed her doctoral coursework in Child Clinical Psychology from Fielding Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, CA, where she is now based.
