I’m a licensed clinical social worker who specializes in the psychology of money and wealth. My work with clients is collaborative and nonjudgmental. This approach is especially important because talking about money can be complicated and at times, challenging.
Our relationship with money runs deep because it’s often ingrained in us at a young age, creating what I refer to as a “financial neighborhood.” Much like the physical surroundings we grow up in, our financial neighborhood can influence us for a lifetime. It is the foundation of our “money story’ – the beliefs and assumptions we have about money and wealth.
In my 20 plus years as a clinician, I’ve discovered that the majority of people carry the hidden weight of their financial neighborhood and money story into adulthood.
The impact goes beyond how we manage or mismanage our finances. It has a profound effect on our behavior, self-worth, relationships - even our career choices. This is why money is never just about the numbers.
I help people learn how to handle the emotional side of money - the powerful connection between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Understanding the “why” behind your behavior is the key to changing it.
Whether you’re currently experiencing anxiety or conflict around finances, are looking for financial alignment in your relationships or are going through a life transition, I encourage you contact me to see if financial therapy is right for you.
