Financial Therapy

Feeling Anxious about Money?

What is Financial Therapy?

Financial therapy brings mindfulness to your relationship with money. Your money behavior is shaped in large part by your environment: Family, culture, history, and the larger economic forces that impact us all. You are not alone. Awareness of these elements is the first step towards change. I offer a 6-session process for individuals and couples to introduce and work on these tools. With support and structure, you really can reduce the discomfort around money by noticing and changing patterns that are no longer useful. You can spend and save in a way that is guided by and honors your values.

TOOLS we will use include:

  • Mindfulness: Recognize getting triggered / reactive and put on the brakes
  • Clear, supportive, productive communication with partners about money
  • Exploring your personal, family, and cultural relationship with money — there’s more to this than just you!
  • Nuts & bolts: Awareness of income and expenses, as well as planful spending. I am a huge fan of the friendly and useful system called YNAB.
Money can support your life rather than run it. When we know the true meaning of enough, then our spending / saving / money behavior is congruent with our core values. There can be peace in relationship to money. Please feel free to get in touch for a brief consultation to see if this is the right next step for you.
