My job is to be there with you while you face your financial picture head-on. The reality is that most Americans are stressed about their finances, and even those who earn good money are often not sure where it all goes. Whether you have stubborn debts, less savings than you'd like, or goals you aren't sure how to fund, I promise to provide an accepting, open and creative atmosphere for you to get on track.

I love demystifying money and replacing the shame and blame so many feel around finances into empowerment and creativity.

For most people managing their money is either anxiety-inducing, coma-inducing, or both. Let's take the stress out of managing your money and add some ease and even fun into the equation. I love to think outside the box with personal finance and make what can be an intimidating topic relatable and tangible. I believe creativity and money can co-exist, and that spirituality and money are not mutually exclusive.

 My goal is to empower you to utilize the money you earn to create a life that you’re excited about.

It’s easy for us to get caught up with our busy lives and realize one day that we aren’t putting our money where our mouth is when it comes to our values. Are we spending money on things we really care about? And that bring us joy? It’s always a good time to ‘Marie Kondo’ your spending.

I’m on a mission to help people who know what they want figure out how to get there.  

Do you want to be debt-free? Buy a home? Retire? I'd love to hear what your goals are and help you to reach them. 

I chose to work with Emily because I needed to get honest, once and for all, about money. Emily immediately put me on a path of financial clarity and integrity (primarily involving simple yet honest budgeting) that has turned my financial life around. Because money affects so much of one’s life, I’ve already gone beyond budgeting to discover greater clarity about major financial challenges like buying a home and preparing for (a hopefully early) retirement. I agree with others who wrote that Emily is practical, authentic, non-judgmental and knowledgeable. I highly recommend coaching with Emily to anyone who wants to achieve transformative breakthroughs in their financial life.

“One of Emily’s greatest gifts as a Financial Coach is her ability to be practical, logical and mathematical while simultaneously also being caring and compassionate. She is authentic, direct, sincere, kind and honest around the complex topic of money and whatever it may bring up for her clients. I highly recommend working with her!”
