Discover money beliefs you didn't know you had and learn how they're impacting your relationship
I’m an expert in helping clients develop financial intimacy. I help them stop money fights and reconnect when they’re not on the same page about money. I’m one of only 50 financial therapists in the U.S. and a licensed marriage and family therapist (CFP®, LMFT, CFT-I™). Plus I have an MBA and was a financial advisor before becoming a therapist.
Working as a financial advisor I realized that helping people develop financial plans, budgets, investments, and wealth management isn’t enough. Without addressing the deeper psychological aspects of the person, none of it made a big difference in my clients' lives. People still made decisions that weren’t in their best interests. Many had unresolved conflicts with their partners about their core beliefs about money.
I help my clients resolve money conflicts, discover their core money beliefs, develop emotional intimacy, and learn how to communicate more effectively about money. I help them understand how their past has influenced their present. Then these couples can feel like a “team” when it comes to their money.
I understand this process deeply. I began my life as a firefighter. Now with three graduate degrees, I still find myself confronting issues about money in my own life and marriage. Through the processes I teach, my wife and I have been able to develop trust, intimacy, and security on a level that wasn’t always present in our marriage.
Talking about money is challenging!
Yet we're never taught a "how to" on how to have difficult conversations about our finances.
In this masterclass you'll understand why talking about money is so challenging.
You'll get equipped with foundational knowledge that will help you navigate the toughest of money conversations.
You’ll get access to the content immediately after purchase. That way you and your partner can begin to understand why you fight about money and learn to have real conversations about money.
You’ll only get out what you put into this process. If you and your partner take the time to deeply understand why money fights occur, and take the time to do the exercises in this masterclass, you will begin to develop a deeper understanding of one another that will help you stop fighting about money.
However, the process of developing complete financial intimacy takes a commitment. You will need to keep working on the deeper processes underlying your own money beliefs.
The process requires deep empathy and understanding of one another. It requires communication skills as well as the willingness to examine the experiences you’ve had with money in the past.
Although “The Healthy Love & Money Masterclass” kickstarts the process of stopping money fights some people may need deeper learning to help them to continue to develop these skills (which you can find in my other courses).
Other people may have the desire for a more personal approach with a therapist or a coach who can help them work through these processes and skills in depth.
This course is not a substitution for and does not constitute therapy.
I am a licenced therapist, however, I am providing education in this context.
Only a licensed mental health practitioner can provide therapy. I am a licensed Financial Therapist in the state of North Carolina and provide therapeutic services to those in my state.
If you’re in North Carolina and need financial therapy services, you can access my Financial Therapy Services here.
I also offer these services on a coaching/consulting basis for people outside of North Carolina. You can contact me here.
“The Healthy Love & Money Masterclass” will create in-depth knowledge and personal learning even if you do it on your own. Often when one member of a partnership grows, the relationship grows.
However, for the best results, both partners should be committed to working on this process together.
Completing “The Healthy Love & Money Masterclass” together is one of the first steps in developing understanding, trust, security, and intimacy in your relationship with each other and money.
The Healthy Love & Money Masterclass is approximately 1-hour long.
However, the discussions that result after completing the course may take longer depending on you and your partner’s commitment and application of the exercises presented in the masterclass.
