The dreaded word "budget", the anxiety around spending, the difficulties saying no when people ask for money, the shame around not having more, the guilt around having too much... It's hard to trust others with your money, and don't even mention what it does to your relationship with your partner! These are some example areas of where financial therapy and coaching can help.

Sarah helps people understand themselves and their finances so that they can achieve the life they want. She brings a therapeutic and supportive approach to personal finance in her work with individuals, couples, and groups; and she partners with financial planners to integrate the therapeutic side into their financial planning meetings.

Sarah is dually trained in both personal finance and mental health counseling. For the first decade of her professional life, Sarah worked as a mechanical engineer. After that, she spent another decade doing financial planning and began to deal with the emotional side of money. She now specializes in working at the intersection of personal finance and mental health.
