Do You Need a Financial Therapist?

Worthwhile article in an issue of Money magazine, “Here’s How to Know If You Need a Financial Therapist,” with a good overview of what we do: discovering “what aspects of your upbringing, your money beliefs, or your relationship with money are causing you distress, sabotaging you, or keeping you stuck.”

Particularly to the point, the author’s opening statement, which identifies just a few reasons why talking about money and how you spend it is the first step in discovering your “money profile”:

“Imagine that you know exactly what you should be doing with your money, but can’t quite bring yourself to do it. Maybe you’re still giving cash to an adult child who probably should be supporting himself. Perhaps you and your spouse have constant arguments about money. Or maybe you’ve lost plenty taking risky bets on the market—and now you’re taking even bigger chances.”
