"I have just participated in a really helpful and insightful two part workshop on finance and emotions by two American colleagues: a leadership consultant and a financial therapist. I am a hard ass in terms of learning and it was amazing.”
Dr. Karen E. (Phd in Education, UK)
“I learned something about myself that I hadn’t realized before… The workshop helped me put aside a bad spending habit and embark on a good one - saving for an emergency fund”
Jenny Woo (NYC)
"Wanted to let you know I think about you more than you will ever know. Woman what have you DONE TO ME, my emotions with money are showing up everywhere and I feel in control!!!!! Thank you again!"
You talk to your therapist about your emotions and your financial planner about your investments, but who do you confine in with your feelings on the taboo topic of your personal relationship with money?
Financial therapy is a relatively new field with around 300 therapist worldwide. It is a combination of mental health therapy and financial planning to help you achieve less anxiety and stress around your feelings towards money while setting financial goals.
Our focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths/weakness with money. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan.
Session are 50 minutes in length online and can be done to fit your schedule.
Our goal is to help you grow from your struggles. We develop a relationship with money at a young age and ignore it for most of our lives. When you are ready to assess how this is impacting both your personal and professional life we are here to help.
Our client base varies, but our core practice is working with c-level executives and entrepreneurs who experience anxiety over how they are spending in their businesses and/or their personal lives with either over or under spending.
Financial issues affect more employees than smoking and obesity combined. Today, approximately 88% of Americans are concerned about their finances, and many surveys have shown that more than half of the US workforce lives paycheck to paycheck.
Financial stress, just like any other kind of stress, leads to health issues and reduced productivity. A next step to improving the health and productivity of your employees is through the implementation of a financial wellness program. Helping your employees reduce financial stress can increase productivity and reduce expenses for your company, resulting in long-term success for both the employee and employer.
Sessions can be 60, 90, 120 minutes with options for one webinar or a 4-part series that include actionable items immediately, long-term planning, crisis adjustments due to COVID-19 or natural disasters (hurricanes), to reach optimum wellness.
Clients include: Warner Music Group, Raging Bull (Elite Room), and Mingling of the Minds.

Erika Wasserman is Your Financial Therapist. She combines her knowledge of finance from her studies at the University of Florida with her passion for helping others, to create a place where it is safe to talk about the natural link between emotions and money. Erika studied at Kansas State University Financial Therapy.
Ms.Wasserman’s journey was not a direct one. She has experienced many life events that have led her to this career - getting married, having children, getting divorced, living abroad, moving domestically for jobs 9 times, and losing a parent. Each of these experiences led to different ways of dealing with and feeling about money.
Erika saw a gap in the marketplace and left corporate American after a 10 year career at IBM to transform brands from innovative products to household names. She has now turned her attention to coaching individuals, couples, families, teams, and delivering corporate wellness programs on how to communicate on the taboo topic of money.
Erika is a highly sought out for Financial Therapy and has been quoted in national media outlets such as Yahoo! Money and The New York Times.
She lives in South Florida with her three creative and active children.
Tiffany has recently signed a two year contract with a prestigious network to host a daily show focused on elite market traders. She spends her day talking about money, yet when it comes to her own she is unsure how to set herself up for success and therefore until recently turned a blind eye to it as there was always “cash in the account”. Tiffany met David later in life and they have always kept their finances separate. While this has worked out nicely before kids, she is now feeling the stress of pivoting her finances and not having a partner to do it with. Tiffany is working with Your Financial Therapist to have support and coaching to transform her personal relationship with money while gaining skills on how to communicate with her life-partner on money.
Providing For Family
When living in NYC getting into the right preschool is a concern. Starting at 2 years old, paying $40,000 for preschool plus a nanny.
Communicating with her partner
Money is a topic they steer clear of to avoid conflict. Each manages their own finances which worked out well before kids, but now is putting a strain on their relationship.
Living in NYC with two successful careers, her perception is that they should be living the high life of fancy dinners, unlimited ubers, summers in the Hamptons, spa and golf days with nannies.
Providing For Family
Communicating with her partner
Focus on the family shifted the financial spend and goals for Tiffany. After four sessions Tiffany was able to clearly assess her current situation, release the anxiety of “not having enough in the bank account” by taking specific actions. Tiffany has an updated budget, identified new goals including preschool (starting at 3), a full-time nanny, and shared kid expenses. Tiffany and David started setting up quarterly check-in meetings to ensure they were both working towards the same family goals by doing so has also led to higher credit scores. The FOMO of luxury dinners and travel didn’t emotionally hurt as much now that she set up a “down payment bank account” for the new home they wanted to have by 2022.
