Fearless Coaching

“I can’t believe how many questions you answered for me and how clear and simple you made things seem. I feel super motivated and excited about our saving goals!” – KF, filmmaker, Sept 2017

Ready to transform your skills, capacity, and relationship to money? I’m here.

I work with individuals, partners and couples, and small business owners. For some, one-off co-creation sessions get you what you need — and for others, recurrent sessions move you forward towards bigger goals.

When and how can we meet?

Sessions are available: Mon – Thurs 6:30p EST – 10:30p EST, and Sundays 2p EST – 11p EST. You’ll choose the time that works best for you when you book.

Our meeting can be done in person in Brooklyn, NY or via a Zoom video call.

When you book your first appointment, you’ll be invited to fill out a coaching intake form. From the info in that, you’ll be given optional customized prep work for the appointment. I recommend booking an intake at least a week out so you have time to do any prep work and ruminate on the work beforehand.

What happens at an appointment? What’s the approach?

My coaching practice is informed by agile design, a trauma-informed approach and consists of strategic, laser-sharp, compassionate financial education customized to you.

Based on what you stated you want to focus on, I use an agile approach to identify and prioritize the most valuable problems to solve, and we focus in on those. As we go “down the list” of what you want to work on, we’ll spend a little less time on each thing. Expect to leave with a customized resource list and action steps document, and a set up spending, savings, or debt plan. Oh, AND with lots of ideas, excitement, and hopefulness. 🙂

I honor intersectionality, want you to have stability, understand artist, freelancer and DIY priorities, and hold progressive values at the core of my work. If you’re here, I LOVE that you are already thinking ahead, it’s only going to increase your successes!


Do you want to make sustainable plans for a budget, a large savings goal, or a job transition? Want to work through money with a partner or finances from your family? I am awesome at:

“Thank you so much for the awesome session last night — I have been flying high and talking about it all day. I honestly feel less afraid (not yet quite riding free fearless money) and I can’t wait to put your tools and suggestions to work. I already started!” — Emmett F., queer musician & digital storyteller

“With Hadassah Damien I gained the skills and perspective I needed to stay calm and focused to make smarter financial decisions.  It was as advertised – judgement-free real talk informed by life experience. I can’t think of a better form of self-care than to give your financial life the attention it deserves through Ride Free Fearless Money.
