I envision a world where 1) money doesn't stress people out, 2) people are able to have productive conversations about money, and 3) people use their money as a tool to support their important values.
People come to Money Health Solutions when they have something between them and financial wellness, or Money Health, and they don't know what it is or haven't been able to get by it on their own. I facilitate Money Health by helping you identify and change your financial beliefs and behaviors that may be negatively impacting your life. I help you create new habits, behaviors, and systems that help you live a financially healthy life without having to rely on your limited willpower.
In other words, I help you think, feel, and behave differently about money.
If you're here, then one of these may describe you.
You know what you're supposed to do logically, but you can't get yourself to do it.
You feel negative emotions, like shame, stress, guilt, or anxiety when money matters come up.
You struggle to talk about money and find yourself fighting about it with your partner.
You mindlessly spend money without a plan and feel bad about it.
You're so anxious about money that you avoid thinking about it, talking about it, or doing anything about it.
You have a good income but you aren't saving as much as you think you should be.
Enough is enough; now's the time to do something about your financial situation.
There's Something In Your Way
If you're like most people, you've got something in between you and where you want to be. Maybe you've identified what it is but can't get past it on your own. Perhaps you don't even know what's in your way. Financial therapy helps you get unstuck and get you on your way to where you want to be.
Improve Your Relationship With Money
Everyone has a relationship with money, even if you didn't know it. This includes how you feel about money, how you think about money, how you behave with money, and how you communicate about money. Improving your relationship with money is the first step toward improving your financial health.
Money and Life Are Closely Related
Money and life are intricately intertwined. There are few financial decisions that don't impact your life somehow, and few life decisions that don't have a monetary component. Get clear about who you are and where you want to go, using your money to support your life.
Have Healthier Money Conversations
Talking about money is hard. We don't like to be judged and the minute we start talking about money we make ourselves vulnerable. Learn how to have productive money conversations.
Become Aware of Your Financial Beliefs
We all have beliefs about money that operate in the background. These beliefs drive our behaviors. We develop these beliefs mostly in childhood and without self-exploration, we don't know they are there. Becoming more aware of your hidden beliefs about money is the first step to changing those beliefs to help change your behavior.
