FAQ

Who do you help?

 

Anyone can suffer from unhealthy financial behaviors. Many of my clients come to me because of major life changes: entering the workforce, marriage, a layoff, a new job, divorce or a loved one passing on. I also work with couples embarking on second marriages wishing to avoid the financial mistakes made during their first marriage.

 

Many of my clients are referred by financial planners, CPAs, attorneys and marriage counselors.

 

 

How do you help?

 

Studies show there’s a close relationship between your  financial wellness and your  total wellness. Healthier financial behaviors deliver not just healthier finances, but a healthier life. Changing your financial behaviors starts with changing how you think about money—creating a healthier money mindset.

 

When you work with me, there is never any shame or blame. I empathize with where you are and how you feel. I was once there myself.

 

I will help you see and understand your "money story", explore what money means to you and identify what your current money mindset is, and how it affects your life and financial decisions.

 

I will give you the tools to change your negative money mindset and the financial behaviors it directs. I will help you adopt smart money habits.

 

What is Financial Therapy?

Financial therapy involves the integration of cognitive, emotional, behavioral, relational, and economic aspects that influence financial well-being, and ultimately, quality of life. Financial therapy professionals understand the interpersonal and intrapersonal aspects of money and utilize this knowledge to help clients achieve their financial goals. Financial therapy scholars are dedicated to producing and sharing clinical, experimental, and survey research that progresses the field of financial therapy. *
