We Start Here

Marlis Jansen - Founder of The Money Conversation
reduce stress and achieve their financial and life goals.
Gain financial freedom and a life of happiness

We bring together the principles of behavioral finance with a variety of therapeutic modalities.

The work we do at The Money Conversation is inspired by gestalt theory, cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic theory.

At the heart of all of our tools and work are the following assumptions:

  1. The Client is the Expert.  Each client has all of the internal resources necessary to find actionable solutions for themselves.  At The Money Conversation, we serve as guides and catalysts.
  2. Awareness is Key. Much of the time, critical elements of the solution are occluded by personal history and experiences. As we acknowledge the occlusion, new possibilities can emerge.
  3. We Are Stronger Together.  As The Money Conversation is able to work with you and your advisors, we access creative ideas that might not have been available to any one party alone.
