Marilyn Wechter: The Mr. Miyagi of Financial Therapy
Joining us on this first episode is Marilyn Wechter. With over 35 years of experience as a financial therapist and wealth counselor, Marilyn is an expert on how human beings relate to money, love and power. Money is often a taboo topic of conversation, and yet it plays a critical role in how we view ourselves. Marilyn has made it her mission to focus her practice on the psychological relationship between wealth and wellbeing.
Marilyn’s practice encompasses counsel for individuals and families, as well as lawyers, financial planners and advisors. At the core of her work is a desire to illuminate areas of discomfort. According to Marilyn, perspective is everything. When you’re able to look at your situation through a new lens, it’s possible to see opportunities that would normally fly under the radar, paving the way for new outlook on money and life.
