Expert Bio: Nikiya Spence (Money Matters & Baggage Claims)
Nikiya Spence has always had an innate interest in financial education and exploring the relationship that people have with money. As a therapist, it became obvious to her that although many of her clients did not specifically seek out her help to deal with money issues, many of their problems were somehow related to money stress and/or their relationship with money. In fact, their problems often impacted their work, relationships, and many times their families. It became apparent that oftentimes it wasn’t the lack of money that created stress and anxiety, but how people struggled with managing their finances.
For many years Nikiya held on to her burning desire to help people gain a deeper understanding on how to manage their finances. Nikiya’s heart and desire has always been to empower people with money. Nikiya made the decision to pursue further training in the areas of financial therapy and money coaching. Nikiya’s goal is to provide clients the tools needed to transform their negative money thoughts, patterns, and beliefs.
