Financial Therapy

Financial therapy is a newer therapeutic discipline. As a concept, it’s only been around a short time, but it’s thriving and backed by plenty of research and expertise. 

Financial therapy can help you maintain your chosen lifestyle, but it can also help if you’re seeking deeper professional help around your relationship with money, its impact on your life, and how the two are connected. 

At Outset Financial, we’re excited to be able to connect you to financial therapists certified by the Financial Therapy Association. FTA-certified therapists have studied psychology and finance, so they’re able to offer you targeted expertise to help you heal and maintain your financial health.
