Welcome back to Therapy Chat! This week host Laura Reagan, LCSW-C interviews Lindsay Bryan-Podvin, LMSW about understanding and improving our relationship with money.

Money is such a taboo in American culture, our capitalist economy and consumerist culture ensure that money is on everyone’s mind all the time, but we don’t talk about it nearly enough. Like so many taboo subjects, we feel like we should be “good with money,” but we receive many conflicting messages about our relationship with money from family, friends, upbringing and culture. Lindsay demystifies money and helps clients (including therapist clients!) to become more comfortable addressing their financial anxiety issues. Listen to this conversation in which Lindsay makes having a positive money mindset sound easy, and tells us how to get started on that path! 

Lindsay Bryan-Podvin (she/her) is a biracial financial therapist, podcast host, speaker, and author of the book “The Financial Anxiety Solution.” In her therapy practice, Mind Money Balance, she uses shame-free financial therapy to help people get their minds and money in balance. She’s expanded her services to help private practice therapists with their money mindset, sustainable pricing, and authentic marketing so they can include financial self-care in their work. She lives with her partner and their dog on the traditional land of the Fox, Peoria, Potawatomi, and Anishinabe Waki peoples also known as Michigan.
