Financial Psychotherapy for Couples

In today’s challenging world concerns about finances, spending, investments or job security can seriously strain otherwise solid relationships and can dampen the enjoyment of life.

Do You and Your Partner Struggle With Any of These Problems?

  • Have disagreements about money started to erode your closeness and sense of connection as a couple?
  • Has one partner committed “financial infidelity”, or does one of you feel betrayed or threatened by the other’s spending or investing habits?
  • Do you find yourself avoiding conversations about money because you are afraid you will have another argument or never find a solution?
  • Do you fail to work well together when it comes to spending or investing money?
  • Do you have little “say” when it comes to making financial decisions?
  • Is one of you not sufficiently educated about or comfortable with finances?

What Does Financial Psychotherapy Offer for Couples?

When finances are a core issue with couples who apparently earn enough to otherwise live a comfortable lifestyle, it is helpful to find a couples therapist who intimately understands the many “meanings” money can have in relationships and how to promote financial and emotional healing.

Financial Psychotherapy can help you break the tension or silence around money and begin a safe, constructive conversation. A financial psychotherapist should be highly skilled at maintaining the right balance between pointing out financial realities or constraints and also encouraging each individual to explore their own unique reactions, truth and values. 

Ultimately the goal is for you to create your own dialogue and feel more empowered and successful as a financial “team” as well as a loving couple. The result is peace of mind, increased confidence, trust in your relationship, and more energy released for intimacy, joy and closeness.

“Although both sex and money attract us, they are laden too with longing and pain... The pain around both is so intense that sex and money are the two most common causes of divorce. They are also frequent subjects of internal fantasy and thought. Remarkably, we actually think about money more than sex.”
