Hi, I’m Ed!
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.
Simply put, I get it and I can help you get it too.
Learn the skills that they should have taught you BEFORE you got married!
