Like so many therapists, Gwyn worried that focusing on money as part of her therapeutic education might turn her into a greedy capitalist. As a queer woman of color, Gwyn had so many negative associations to wealth and these beliefs interfered with her ability to welcome money into her business.
Even after Gwyn decided to invest in Lean In. MAKE BANK she was surprised to discover how deeply the program challenged her. Tiffany approached her beliefs about money with all of the passion, zeal and nuance that only a nerdy psychoanalytic thinker could.
There’s nothing fascile or simplistic about the analysis of money in this course. I think that’s pretty rare in the courses I’ve taken about marketing for therapists, having this psychodynamic perspective embedded into the ways we’re thinking and also the homework assignments we do. That was really valuable to me.
For Gwyn, learning from someone who comes from a blue collar background, someone who understands the unique struggles that come with upward mobility, made had a deep impact on her experience of being seen and understood as she went through Lean In. MAKE BANK.
