Maureen D. Healy is an award-winning author, keynote speaker and healer helping highly sensitive children thrive. Her popular blogs on Psychology Today, and for the PBS series, This Emotional Life, have focused on helping children become inwardly stronger and happier.

Unique about Maureen is her experience working directly with kids globally from the Bronx to the Base of the Himalayas. In 2007, Maureen was invited to work with Tibetan refugee children in India as well as study with His Holiness the fourteenth Dalai Lama. Her book, Growing Happy Kids, begins with her journey to Asia and being surrounded by monkeys (which really happened!). Currently, Maureen’s next trip is to Peru to work with their extraordinary children.

In 2016, Maureen also has a children’s book coming out with New Harbinger designed to help highly sensitive children. Similar to her other books, Maureen will go on a book tour and information will appear across all media outlets (TV, Radio, and Online). Some of her past press included Scholastic, Parents Magazine, AOL’s “The Fatherhood Project” with Hank Azaria, and TV such as CW’s San Diego Living.

Complimented by more than 15+ years of real-life experience, Maureen has a BA in Psychology and 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. Along with these traditional degrees Maureen has a Reiki Master Teacher certification in energy healing.
