HDM 207: The Journey Towards Loving Your Money

The journey towards loving your money takes time. Back on Episode 204 I shared my own perspective on loving your money vs. loving money.

In this episode I wanted you to hear different perspectives which is why I invited Laura Fortuna, Claudia Parada and Christina Tello.

A little bit about our panelists for this episode:

🙋🏻‍♀️ Claudia Parada is a San Francisco Bay Area native, Claudia completed my Bachelors at San Francisco State University Latinx Studies Program and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Integral Counseling Psychology, training in humanistic approaches to therapy.

She has a passion for working with people of color to remember and reimagine the way they heal together in today’s world.

Claudia uses eight years of holistic life coaching experience and five years of apprenticeship in Mesoamerican tradition to support clients uncover their own inner wisdom around what health and healing mean for them.
