Have you ever wondered:

  • Why do we have such differences of opinion about our finances?
  • Why haven’t the tips from our financial advisor worked? 
  • Why do we face so many financial challenges? 
  • Why can’t we seem to get this part of our relationship “figured out”?

 

Understanding the origins of your money beliefs, ideas, and expectations is powerful. 

There are just some factors your financial advisor can’t solve for.

You know how I know that? 

I used to be a financial advisor.

When I was doing that work, I quickly recognized that no matter how many tools, tips, or tricks I gave individuals or couples about their finances, it wasn’t enough. 

There was something much deeper going on that was getting in the way of their financial goals and negatively impacting people’s relationships.

What was underlying all of this financial stress?

This question was what led me to get my marriage and family therapist license and then to help create the Financial Therapy designation. I wanted to know more about people, families, relationships, emotions, and how all of that impacted their money. 

What I learned: 

The more you uncover your earliest impressions with money, and the more you face those unresolved issues, the more you can heal your relationship with money and the one with your partner.

This can be tough work, and that’s why I’ve created something to get you started that is:

FROM FIREFIGHTER TO FINANCIAL THERAPIST TO FOUNDER OF HEALTHY LOVE AND MONEY

Hi, I'm Ed (CFP®, LMFT, CFT-I™). I’m a firefighter turned financial advisor turned marriage and family financial therapist and I know a lot about walking into high-intensity situations, navigating “the flames,” and walking everyone out safely. I have over 20+ years of working with individuals and couples around money-related issues. I’m also a family man. I have three very active boys and a beautiful, driven wife that I adore. 

But even with my degrees, education, and work experience, I’m not absolved from money issues in my marriage. I’m human. My wife is human. As such, we are both complex beings that bring to the table a variety of things, including all of our own ideas, memories, and beliefs around money. Simply put, I get it and I feel for you.

With both formal education and personal experience in resolving conflicts, managing finances, developing emotional intimacy, and understanding family systems, I’m an informed and empathetic guide. My goal is to help couples uncover and understand the roots underlying their financial conflicts.

"...I often don’t think about how my grandparents and past generations experience affect my own financial behaviors and feelings. Ed did a great job of expanding my view of how money beliefs have been passed down to me…"
