Hi! I’m Fran!
As a Life Transitions Coach, I am passionate about supporting people who are making some kind of transition in their lives – whether it’s a personal transition or a professional one – and helping them discover what excites them now – what they are passionate about doing now – and supporting them in actualizing what comes next!
I bring to my professional coaching practice 40+ years experience as a respected university profession of psychology and counseling, and as a licensed psychologist, and certified master holistic life coach.
Over the past few years, I transitioned from my home in White Plains, NY, to live in Maryland, building an addition on to my daughter and son-in-law’s home, in Phoenix, Maryland, where I now reside. I have also transitioned from being a psychologist, and counselor to being a solo entrepreneur life coach.
During my transition I explored various niches in life coaching, but my heart always came back to doing law-of-attraction coaching, because it empowers you to go for and truly achieve what you want to attain. It doesn’t matter whether your goals are personal or career-related. I also love it because it supports you in “enlightening up” – i.e., maintaining a positive, optimistic outlook on life that results in miracles!
Among my strengths that I bring to my coaching practice is a very large toolbox based on extensive training in various therapeutic modalities as well as intensive coach training. That, coupled with a strong intuitive sense, allows me to adapt these tools to the unique needs of each client. Focusing on what people want, rather than what they don’t want, and on what makes their lives “juicy” and sweet, I am able to support them in manifesting their hearts’ desires.
Fran Delahanty, Ph.D. has spent a lifetime supporting others in growth and transformation.

Originally teaching at the undergraduate level, in the last 15 years of her career, she taught in the graduate counseling program, as well as starting an undergraduate peace and justice studies program. Her undergraduate and graduate courses were mainly experiential courses in personal development and interpersonal communication skills, and her graduate classes were also largely experiential classes, focused on group dynamics, non-violent communication, and principles and practices of emotional well-being.
Early in her career she was a business and communications consultant for IBM and Texaco, as well as other small businesses. She co-founded the Peace and Justice Studies Program at Pace University, and until her retirement was director of that program on the Pleasantville, NY campus. Until her retirement she was a lead trainer for the Alternatives to Violence Program, and all-volunteer program offered in 41 countries that teaches prison inmates and community members non-violent strategies for dealing with conflict.
Fran is a professionally trained and certified master holistic life coach, and has been coaching since 2000.
