Did you know what people stress about and couples argue about the most is money?
…And yet, it doesn’t have to be that way.
What could you accomplish if you had less financial stress in your life?
Would you and your spouse like to stop arguing about money?
Would you both benefit by acting as a team when money issues come up?
Would you like to learn new skills on how to communicate about money?
If You and Your Spouse Feel Overwhelmed By Your Money Issues… You’re in the Right Place
Getting married or choosing to live together is no guarantee that you can handle the money issues that will come up. You simply become a couple … and suddenly, you fall into instant money management together.
Each and every couple feels like they are out there alone on their financial path. As if, “This is a part of life. We should just know how to do it.”
When in fact, money issues are the focus of the most stress and problems in a marriage or partnership. Money management is a highly sensitive and personal topic that’s completely emotionally charged.
Money issues are discussed even less than sex by couples.
We go to therapists for relationships issues. We use wedding planners for the big day. We even go to sex therapists to have better sex. But Money? We think we should just know how to do this.
Yet every couple is unique and part of that uniqueness is bringing their own history and what I call their ‘Financial Feelings’ to the relationship. Putting a system in place and having a safe place to discuss this volatile, charged subject, can lower the voltage and produce a peaceful existence.
Is it Possible to ‘Re-Wire’ Your Financial Feelings?
My answer is a resounding YES!
This is something every couple wants to know – can they really be taught (or ‘re-wired’ more accurately) to think about money differently? To move through their financial life as a team? To recognize where they have blocks, feel stuck, feel afraid, even feel lost around money … and so grow accordingly?
I am here to help couples work on their money issues in a way that combines sound financial advice with the kind of root-based coaching and therapy that makes for breakthroughs. My financial advice makes sense … and sticks!
So you, as a couple, can pull together and begin to actually enjoy your money conversations, your decisions, your planning sessions, and co-creating your entire financial future TOGETHER.
How I know I can help you … Just as I have helped thousands of others
Over the past twenty years, I worked with thousands of couples on understanding their life and their finances. Their relationships were solid but riddled with financial stumbling blocks threatening their peace and prosperity. Over time, they learned to work together as a team as part of the MoneyPeace process.
I have been a consultant and resource for a variety of organizations and media including USA Today, Good Housekeeping, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Better Homes and Gardens and have been a guest on a number of television shows discussing Financial Intimacy for Couples, MoneyPeace and Money and Memory.
I have a BS in Finance, an MBA in Entrepreneurship, and am a Certified Financial Planner. I’ve co-authored a book entitled Practical Freelancing with Tim Brookes. In addition, I have spoken throughout North America at financial planning and trade conferences, organizations, businesses, and financial planning retreats.
And I’m part of a financially enlightened marriage, myself! So you can be assured I walk my talk!

What is Not Talking About Money Costing You Now? (How working with me can actually save you thousands.)
If you and your partner are not communicating well about money, it’s definitely costing you. Think about it.
- What are you paying right now in overdraft fees?
- Late fees on bills?
- Credit card interest?
Most of these charges are a direct result of not communicating effectively as partners about money.
Are you making any decisions about savings, or are you investing in your net worth?
If not, that’s money lost, too.
Are you spending time and energy arguing about the “right way” to financially handle your lives?
This can all be changed.
A simple investment in your partnership of time and energy now, will save you money and countless hours later.
Your relationship is important to you. This process will deepen your commitment to each other and strengthen your bond.
Change Your Relationship Dynamics, Change Your Life
Truthfully, you wouldn’t blow off a business partner, or get mired in a tangle of arguments and conflicts time after time, when money was an issue, right? You’d either sit down and work on your differences – or get some help when you need it.
And yet … working as money partners in a personal relationship is no different. Money and decisions around investments still have to be made – just like in a business.
So that’s when it’s a great idea to get some outside help … and that’s why I am here to serve you.
I am confident that at the end of the work together, you will have a shift to financial understanding and a stronger relationship with your partner.

The cost to you and your partner is minimal compared to what you will save after you take the workshop. What do you pay now in monthly credit card interest? Financing fees?
