Season 1 Episode 8: Mind Your Money with Lindsay Bryan-Podvin

Money. Women don’t like to talk about it. And there are often so many emotional barriers to talking about and addressing issues related to money.

Enter financial therapist and social worker, Lindsay Bryan-Podvin. Lindsay is a practicing financial therapist in Michigan. As the first financial therapist in Michigan, she combines financial literacy with the emotional and psychological side of money. Lindsay has a background in mental health research and psychotherapy, having trained at the University of Michigan in Social Work.

We discuss the following:

  • The challenges women face when it comes to the view of money (and its an important one!)
  • Buying/shopping as a way of coping with difficult emotions, and how to press pause to stop the emotional spending.
  • How important it is for you to connect to your values when dealing with money.
  • Core themes and struggles that people get stuck with are also discussed, including the connection to setting boundaries. (Need help with your boundaries? Be sure to check out episode three!)
  • The challenges couples face when managing finances and how they can begin to have the difficult financial discussions.

Be sure to listen to the end of the episode where Lindsay gives three excellent tips to help you change your relationship with money.
