Maureen Healy is a child development and parenting expert with twenty years of experience fostering children's holistic health. Her organization, Growing Happy Kids, is committed to planting the seeds of strength and inner peace in children globally. With both experience in private practice and as a public advocate for children, Maureen has helped countless parents, teachers, and children develop the skill of self-confidence and learn how to cause happiness.
 Unique about Maureen is that she has spent a significant portion of her life studying Eastern and Western psychologies focused upon how to be happier. She has studied in Asia with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, worked with Tibetan children in India, and has continued to be a student of Tibetan Buddhism with her root lama in the United States. Complimenting her eastern mindset, Maureen also delved deeply into the western science of happiness through studying child clinical psychology and working with some of the "great" thinkers of our time.
 With such an insightful and rare perspective, Maureen has become a leading voice in the field of parenting and children's emotional health. She writes a popular blog on Psychology Today's website titled "Creative Development" and has also appeared on ABC's View from the Bay, CW's San Diego Living, and NBC's Philadelphia 10! Her writing has appeared in Spirituality & Health, Tathaastu, and Counselor Magazine as well as notable websites like PBS's This Emotional Life series. She is also a sought after speaker for educational conferences, international events, and parenting programs across the nation.
 Healy's intuitive insights and scientific understanding of children is grounded in her background. She studied psychology at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts where she received a BA and also an MBA focused on human potential. She then studied at Fielding Graduate University based in Santa Barbara, California, where she focused on child clinical psychology and completed two years of doctoral training. Combining these educational experiences with practical understanding, Maureen is committed to being a force for good on behalf of children everywhere. For more information, please visit
