Master Your Money, Change Your Life

Money Smart for Life
can help!

Is money holding you back from becoming your best self? Financial coaching can change your life.

Dream of freeing yourself from a soul-sucking job, but worried about paying the bills?

Debt holding you back from forming a family, starting that business, taking your kids on that dream vacation?

At a turning point in your life as a result of divorce, death of a spouse/partner – or even the realization that life is finite and you don’t want to waste one more minute – but feeling stuck because of finances?

Financial Coaching Leads to Transformation

Your finances are connected to every other part of your life – family, career, relationships, and more.

We’ll work on the “nuts and bolts” of your money, and at the same time focus on the thoughts, feelings, and actions preventing you from living your best life.

Financial coaching AND life coaching, for deep and lasting change.  


Single and wanting a child, but not sure how to make the finances work?

I’ve been there, and I get it.  

The worry about going it alone. The high costs of adoption or conceiving through donor sperm and IUI. Or even if you adopt through the foster care system, the scary-high costs of raising a child.

If you dream of becoming a parent, though, there’s a way to do it. I will help you clarify your financial situation and make a specific plan for turning your dream into reality.

If I could do it on my own, you can, too. 

So contact me and let’s get started, Mama!

Together, we’ll hit the “Fab Four” of Personal Finance:

1. Mindset/Values

We all have them: thoughts that can hold us back from making, saving, and investing money.

With coaching, you’ll learn to create a new narrative for yourself. This isn’t woo-woo! It’s real, and it works.

We’ll also work on clarifying your values and setting goals based on what’s most important to you.

2. Spending/Debt Reduction

You can make all the money in the world, but if you spend most of it, or more, you’re just treading water. 

That gets exhausting. So come ashore! 

We’ll walk through every expense and create a spending plan that aligns with your values, and a budget you’ll actually use. 

If you have debt, we’ll also make a workable debt pay-down plan. 

3. Income

I LOVE helping my clients make money!!

If you want or need to increase your income, we’ll look at different ways you can boost the amount coming in. This might include negotiating a raise, looking for a different job, and/or working a side hustle.

I’ll coach you through every step along the way.

4. Savings/Growth

There are many paths to wealth.

You could win the lottery, but odds are better you’ll be killed by a meteorite. A long lost aunt could leave you her fortune, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. Your business could make millions. Yes! But you should still save and invest.

The surest path to wealth is growing your money over the long term. It’s not too late!

I’ll help you start and stick to a savings habit, so you can pursue your dreams and secure your future.

Sorry, I don’t give investment advice, but when you’re ready I can refer you to someone who does.

So Let’s Start Planning …

 “It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.”  

– Eleanor Roosevelt

What Clients Say

"Deb helped bring vision and structure to my financial thinking. Before our conversations, money felt like something to just make problems go away - I needed it for housing, food, donations, and bills, but I didn't see it as something with potential. Through our conversations, I'm understanding money as a tool to make my life more my own. Deb helps me clarify what I'd like my life to be, and frames money as one of the ways to get there - it has made me feel more financially capable than ever."
Nora B.

"I'm over the moon that I have a clear picture of my finances! Deb not only helped me gain a better understanding of my financial health, she also helped me put plans in place to reach my financial goals. I can see that my goals are possible and have begun to enjoy managing my finances."
