About Deborah Healy


Working previously as a licensed (State of FL, LMHC) and as a board certified (NBCC) professional mental health counselor, my training and experience includes a clinical practice in medical and psychiatric facilities  I have also worked in public and private schools and universities and in social service agencies.  I have enjoyed a rich and varied career, stateside and internationally

In 2016, I crossed over to coaching and work from this perspective. My practice is now limited to personal and professional coaching, consultation and counseling. As my clients require medical, psychological, financial or legal support, I am available to work in collaboration with other professionals.
