“In many ways I serve as a financial therapist. Everyone has financial baggage – as an example, my Depression-era grandmother used to cut napkins – and it’s these embedded experiences regarding wealth and well-being that often drive our behavior. My role is to listen, empathize, and help my clients take the emotion out of financial decisions so that we can move forward with a plan that inspires clarity and confidence.”
