Amanda entered the mental health field with a unique focus: the role of money in people's lives. Her journey into this niche began in her twenties when she noticed how deeply emotional her relationship with money was. Financial challenges she faced were more about underlying emotional wounds than mere poor financial decisions. As she delved into therapy for herself, she realized that simply understanding these emotional roots wasn't enough to change her behavior; it required dedicated focus and effort.Determined to transform these insights into healthier financial behaviors, Amanda questioned why this intersection of finance and emotional health wasn't more widely addressed. This sparked a passion within her to help others navigate the same path. She found herself compelled to continuously explore and work in this area, aiming to illuminate the connection between money and emotional well-being for her clients, much like the metaphorical bridges she jokes about burning—illuminating the way for others.
