#44: How women can build a healthy relationship with money with Dr. Kate Levinson

Dr. Kate Levinson, PhD, licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT), is the author of Emotional Currency: A Women’s Guide to Building a Healthy Relationship with Money, published by Random House. Her work focuses on the emotional, psychological and symbolic nature of money. 

She assists others in making connections between their money behaviors and the meanings money holds for them, including the generational money beliefs, habits and racism they have inherited.

Kate consults with individuals, families with adult children, and couples on money issues. In addition to her work with clients she most recently was the co-owner of Point Reyes Books, an independent community serving bookstore in Northern California. 

We cover the following in our conversation:

  • What is emotional currency?
  • The relationship women have with money
  • Money beliefs, including the shame women feel around money
  • Racism and impact
  • Why understanding our history with money intimately is important
  • And how women can breakthrough struggle and hardship around their money-especially as a result of the pandemic
  • Kate shares a message for women who want to shift their relationship with money.
