Learn how to create a healthy and sustainable relationship to money.

Money coaching is a customized blend of financial planning and financial therapy. Carrie helps professionals, families and small business owners take control of their money and find lasting emotional and financial security. With her mindful counseling and holistic approach, clients take a rigorous look at their income and expenses to create flexible monthly and annual spending plans (a.k.a budgets). When relevant, clients address family history and imbalances such as debt, emotional spending, financial conflicts in relationships and underearning. The money coaching process with Carrie is transformative, practical and inspiring – it’s about aligning your spending, saving, and earning with your values.

Praise for Carrie Friedberg, SF Money Coach

✮✮✮✮✮ Carrie Birgbauer Friedberg can lead you out of your money fog into financial clarity! After doing a lot of the “inner” work around my relationship to money in a previous seminar, this seminar offered the best possible next step. Without dropping the acknowledgement of emotional issues at hand when dealing with your money, Carrie offered the actual facts and hands-on steps to proceed into a more successful and conscious “tending to your money garden.” … I am so much better now at knowing what my real financial needs are and how I can accomplish them, in a committed and creative way! -Elke R.

✮✮✮✮✮ 5 stars for sure but better than “as good as it gets.” Carrie will change your life. I now can’t imagine my life without Carrie’s support as a coach. She has both the money/numbers know-how and the compassion of an experienced counselor. This combination allows her to gently guide you through the emotions that come up when we start to wake up and acknowledge our money reality. I had immediate breakthroughs after our first session… I’m being serious… Our first session. For real. Bottom line, e-mail Carrie now. You are welcome. -Joanna R.

✮✮✮✮✮ I am so glad I found Carrie! She’s really helped me understand my motivations surrounding money and opened my eyes to so many of my behaviors and perceptions relating to personal finance. It’s amazing to feel like I’m progressing to a level of control and comfort with money that I’ve been lacking most of my life. Carrie is supportive and understanding, but definitely holds me accountable. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with her! I recommend her highly! -Leigh-Ann C.
