What is the biggest reason you are looking for financial coaching?
“Hanna’s curriculum is deceptively gentle. I’ll be honest, the first time Hanna told us she does not allow shame, punishment, or restriction, I thought she was crazy. But before we knew it, we were communicating in a way we both felt safe and then were able to make an actual budget we still keep with today.”
You’re worried you’ll be told what to do
You’re safe here. You will not be corrected, directed, or sold to. Our work will be collaborative and respectful.
You think you are “bad at money”
You can’t use tools you’ve never been given. My job is to replace old, conventional financial “wisdom” with tools and strategies custom built for you, by you.
But… you are so much closer than you think
It might seem like it will take years to make any progress (after all it took you years to get here), but you’ll start seeing results in just a few sessions. Most couples meet with me for just 15 sessions.
Couples financial coaching that respects both of you
“We were having the same cyclical, toxic conversation over and over. We were both so resentful and hurt that we couldn’t even decide whether to eat out or not. EVERYTHING we talked about felt like a trap. Through our work with Hanna, we recognized that our instincts to protect ourselves from each other were normal, and she showed us how we could communicate without feeling exposed or unsafe. I wish we’d found her 30 years ago.”
“I was either attacking my partner or feeling like was being attacked. We’d tried so many fucking budgets, endless spreadsheets, restricting ourselves until we couldn’t function, and getting in to way too much debt. We make good money and could not understand why we never had any savings. My favorite part of working with Hanna was how we snuck up on our budget. That first conversation my wife and I had without fighting while talking about money was shocking. It surprised us both.”
Frequently Asked Questions
What do we need to have on hand for coaching?
You won’t need any financial information on hand as we begin coaching. Through our work together we’ll be gathering all of that info. Collecting and presenting all your financial “laundry” seems like the logical first step, right? But if I asked my clients to start getting financially naked right up front, we’d never start.
Is it important that both partners be at the info session?
Yep, it’s very important that both partners be at the info session (and the coaching sessions as well). Worried about broaching the topic of coaching with your partner? Check out this article, or reach out to me for a quick, 15-minute phone call!
Will you give us a budget?
If just getting your hands on a premade budget worked, you two would be ok by now. I don’t give out a budget, but what we will work on together is developing a customized, adaptable, personalized budget that will work for both of you.
I want my partner to stop spending money on unnecessary things. How do you fix that?
I don’t. My job isn’t to tell either of you what you should or should not be spending money on. My job is to teach you both tools that help you make decisions together. When you can: trust yourselves and each other with money, adapt and develop your own money system (budget), and have a healthy relationship with your finances, then I know I’ve done my job!
