Individual 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 my goals!” – KF, filmmaker.

I’m an Accredited Asset Management Specialist from the College of Financial Planning, a longtime entrepreneur, a human-centered designer, artist, and activist for economic justice. I bring my whole self to this work, and that means you benefit from my unique perspective.

As a practical strategist, I combine:

  • real-talk financial education – we will break it down!
  • intersectional, strengths-based, and design thinking approaches
  • we identify specific ways for you to create opportunities to transform your practices and relationship to money

I’ve worked with over 350 individuals, partners, and small business owners who have lovely things to say.

Individual coaching is all about getting you a custom solution and you having the tools to use it!

Much more detail on each of these options below.

When and how do we meet?

Initial intake sessions are available Sundays 1p EST – 8p EST and Mon Noon-10p ET. Ongoing sessions are available those days plus Tuesday evening and Thursday AM.

We’ll meet via a Zoom video call or in person in Brooklyn, NY.

You’ll select that date, time, and meeting format that work for you – as well as pay – when you book your session.

The initial intake is a 90-minute strategic discovery and action planning session.  For the 60% of my clients who are seeking to solve one or two problems and make a plan you want to follow through on yourself, this one session is enough to move forward from.

What does it cost?

I offer sliding scale for all sessions ($400-120), as an experiment to allow higher-income folks and orgs to support lower-income folks in getting customized financial support. So far it’s working!

The “regular” session fee is $210. Lower end fees are for folks who have less access to resources, and higher end fees are for folks who run successful businesses or are parts of organizations who pay for the session. Check out the sliding scale info here to help you understand where you fit.

If a 1:1 session isn’t right, check out our affordable online trainings and guides.

Ongoing sessions after a 90-minute intake are one hour and costs vary.

  • If you want accountability and transformation support, program packages are $450-675.
  • Sliding scale one-off check-ins are available from $110-$200.

Sliding scale in brief: If you historically have had less access to resources and still don’t have a $100k+ job or an inheritance boosting you, please choose lower sliding scale sessions. Conversely, if your organization is paying for your professional development, or you/your business brings in over $200k or you inherited wealth, slide up towards the top of the scale.

The “true” value of my work is, as I charge my non-community consulting clients, towards the top of the scale 🙂

“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. I have a plan for what to do with my finances – which means I can dream bigger dreams than I thought possible.”

One-off Coaching Sessions 

Have a set of random questions?
Need a step-by-step plan for one project?
Want guidance from someone who doesn’t remind you of a mean dad?
Having money feelings and need to talk it out?

I’ve been through many things: from defaulted student loans, to selecting investments I feel good about; from scammy collections, to inheriting money, to not inheriting money that came through a too-nasty family member. I’ve started small businesses, run the financial side of organizations, and I can whip a budget into shape as my relaxing morning activity. I’ve invested, saved, and started a retirement fund. I’ve found ways to live my punk, feminist values and TCB.

I’m ready to listen and give you sound advice. We can meet either in person in Brooklyn, on a Zoom video call, or on the phone.
