Most of us believe that if we only had more money, our lives would be better. The truth is we can improve our lives just by changing the way we relate to the money we already have. Our money is related to so many parts of life: power, love, identity, security, self image, fear, and self worth. Money counseling will help you gain clarity about the interplay between emotions and financial behaviors. The goal of working with the Positive Self Center is to give you the knowledge and techniques you need to better understand and manage the role of money in your life.

If you want to change the way you relate to money, contact us.  To schedule an appointment please call (248) 645-5960.

Before your first appointment, we ask that you please fill out and submit the Money Survey.

Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.
