If you've come to my website you're probably feeling frustrated and anxious. No One Wants to Be Having Money or Relationship Issues ~ and certainly not BOTH. When we fall in love or get married - talking about money seems very unromantic. However, once we're in a long term relationship couples fight or disagree about money more than any other issue. It isn't because there is something wrong with you - it's because money taps into our core survival needs. When we're dealing with money issues - it's not really about the money - it's about feeling safe, valued, having your dreams fulfilled.
Money issues directly or indirectly account for 60% of divorces. Couple’s therapists typically don’t have the background or the sophisticated tools to help resolve and heal money problems.
Money conflicts can affect all areas of the relationship including a couple’s intimacy.
Children often bring up deeply buried value conflicts that haven’t previously surfaced.
Life events such as having kids, one partner losing a job or restarting work can trigger deeply held issues regarding work, money and identity.
Sometimes Divorce is one of those inevitable but unplanned for life changes. I understand that the ending of a marriage can create a number of emotional and financial challenges. It is very important to consider the financial realities of divorce before, not after, the final papers are signed. Successfully creating two households from one requires a skilled and steady approach, designed to meet the needs of your children, yourself and your future.
Money Coaching is unique in that it combines both the practical financial analysis with the emotional support and deep work required to heal and transform our deeply held emotions, beliefs and patterns around finances.
"But Maureen, what if I'm single or if my partner won't agree to this kind of therapy?" This happens all the time. 90% of the time I'm approached by one partner. Just one person in a relationship doing this work can make a HUGE impact.

MONEY COACHING FOR Every Stage of life
"My husband and I have been married for 15 years, but our big arguments have always been about money. It’s a particularly vulnerable issue for me personally. Doing Money Coaching with Maureen, she helped me look at painful and shameful feelings I had regarding money and move beyond guilt to solutions. The communication between my husband and I has improved immensely. I feel in control of my reactions to money triggers and my confidence has grown in leaps and bounds. Thanks Maureen!"
