Maureen Healy is an award-wining author, popular speaker and expert on children’s emotional health. Her blogs on Psychology Today, and for the PBS series, This Emotional Life, have shared her ideas widely.

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!).

In 2016, Maureen is also finishing her next book. At publication, Maureen will go on a book tour and information will appear across all media outlets (TV, Radio, and Online). Some of her past press has included Scholastic, Parents Magazine, AOL’s web series, “The Fatherhood Project” with Hank Azaria, and NYU’s “About Our Kids” program on Sirius XM.

Complimented by 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. In addition, Maureen is a Reiki Master teacher in the USUI lineage.
