Services and Fees
Financial therapy helps people think, feel, interact with their money in a healthy and balanced way. Examples of topics covered in financial therapy are below:
Creating a plan to keep you from feeling defeated by spending and saving
Examining the reason for emotional spending and collaborating on the way to slow or end the behavior
Communication to address or prevent financial infidelity (couples)
“Workaholic” or wealth obsession concerns
Setting financial boundaries with self, friends or family
Sudden wealth or inheritance issues
I am not a personal financial specialist, and my approach to finances is not intended to be a substitute for certified financial planning services from a CFP or CPA. In some cases, such as a comorbid mental health diagnosis, financial therapy services may be covered by insurance. Without a thorough intake evaluation, I cannot say whether or not they may be covered. I often advise potential clients to plan on paying for services out-of-pocket. Many people find financial therapy services complement traditional psychotherapy and personal financial planning.
Money Beliefs Package
This package is recommended for couples pre-cohabitation or pre-marriage. It can also be great for couples who are experiencing a change in their lives; a big move, new career, or a child on the way. The first session contains introductions and initial discussion on personal and familial money beliefs and current stressors. The second and third sessions dive deeper into ideas, problems, and troubleshooting (this can be done as a duo or as two individual sessions). The fourth session is three months later which will serve as a check-in on goals and continued strength building.
Four 1.5-hour sessions $700. Additional sessions following the completion of the package are $160/hour
Individual Financial Therapy
Financial issues can be uncomfortable to address, but everyone needs a healthy relationship with money in every stage of life. The goal is to have a balanced and healthy relationship with your finances. If you find yourself far from that goal, or don’t know what your goal is, individual financial therapy may be a good fit.
$150/hour for individuals, $160/hour for couples
I tailor financial talks for a variety of settings. I often add information on self-care, mental health, and psychology to presentations. Past audiences have included people at churches, universities, and middle-and-high schools. I cherish speaking to small-to-medium sized groups of professionals to help them address their financial stressors from an emotional perspective. I don't just lecture; I engage with the audience.
Examples of speaking topics include:
How to shift your Money Mindset to Abundance
How to Spend and Save in Line with your Values
Why your Money Scripts are Hurting You
Figuring out Your Financial Foundation
$450/hour, nonprofits may be eligible for a discount.
