I am Dr. Delice Coffey, and I specialize in sport and clinical psychology. I am a native of Waxhaw, North Carolina, and a successful business owner who continues to improve the world around me through my work and dedication. I have spent many years of education and business preparation to develop Living Well Sport & Life and the D. Coffey Foundation for Athletics and Education. I am dedicated to improving overall well-being both mentally and physically by working with the athlete as a whole person. I have created a system to empower individuals educationally, mentally, and physically to be the best version of themselves so that they can soar to the top in sport and life.
I have worked as the team Psychologist for Union County Xtreme AAU basketball team, Hillside High School basketball team, and Hillside High School football team. I volunteer a great deal of my time to the D. Coffey Foundation for Athletics & Education and with the WNBA and Jr. NBA Her Time to Play program. I have spent over 35 years with clients in my private practice and students in the school system.
Dr. Delice Coffey
I am a formal bodybuilder and powerlifter. I began competing in 1987. In 1990, I won first place in the heavyweight division and Best Female Poser at the Sandhills Bodybuilding Championships. Throughout my powerlifting career, I broke 10 North Carolina State Records, the APA National Record, and in 1997, I broke the World Record at the World Power Lifting Alliance. I am also the 1984 Association of College Unions International (ACU-I) Table Tennis Champion.
My love for sports deepened in Junior High School when I started cheering for the basketball and football teams. I continued to cheer for both sports until I graduated from high school. I was successful in track and field during my high school days, with the shot put being my main event. I have competed in several 5K’s and 10K’s races since 1999 and completed my first half marathon in 2014.
