Live Your Values - Love Your Life

  • Are you living your best life?

  • Are you using your money in alignment with your values?

  • Is there more that you wish to contribute to the world?

  • If so, are you taking the actions to make it happen?

If you have a vision for a thriving and equitable world, but are overwhelmed and burnt out working to make it a reality you are not alone. Perhaps you want to donate to causes you care about or invest for your future, but instead feel guilty about purchases you've made and fear looking at how much debt you have.

I support progressive young professionals and changemakers, including government staff, public policymakers, and community organizers, to clarify what is most important and go for goals worth playing for. Together, we will help you achieve your life goals and use your time, money, and energy in alignment with your values. You will experience increased confidence and spaciousness as you live a more meaningful and fulfilling life that focuses on giving your unique skills, perspective, resources, or other gifts to the world.

Experience the following shifts in your life with my coaching support:

  • Overwhelm -> Focus

  • Isolation -> Connection

  • Internal Conflict -> Alignment

  • Avoidance -> Clarity

  • Stress -> Ease

Be part of the healthy, thriving world you dream of by creating health in your own life and community.

Meet Coach Emma

I've always loved creating and contributing to community, whether it is through directly connecting with and supporting people or planning and physically constructing cities that focus on health and well-being. Throughout high school and college I was a grassroots climate organizer and civically engaged. During my decade as a professional transportation planner I helped plan, fund, and build the equitable and thriving world I dream of. I now focus on bringing about my vision for the world through coaching and mentoring visionary leaders.

My vision for a healthier world inspires me to work with individuals to align their time, money, and other life energies with their values so that they can be their best selves and thrive as we collectively transform the world.

Emma Newman:

Life Coach and Money Mentor

"Emma has changed our lives and made our marriage stronger!"

- Saundra and Dan Bouchante


Emma was a tremendous help to me! This is embarrassing to say but, I had never made a budget before or ever really thought about where my money goes every month! I just lived by the rule of pay the bills and put things I want on credit. I had the mentality that I couldn’t save because I didn’t have the money to. I also thought I would probably have to work my entire life. I was SO wrong!

Now, I do not just put things on credit! I save for the things I need, think about whether or not I actually need the item and then make the purchase when I have the money and it has been well thought out. I have already started paying off credit card debt and have been putting money away in savings every month! Emma saved me from possible financial ruin in my future. She helped me change into someone who may in fact be able to retire one day!

Saundra Bouchante


Emma has taught me so much about my finances. She is patient, clear, and makes the process fun and enjoyable. Who knew I would enjoy learning how to budget so much? Learning that the most important step is to actually look at my finances and hold myself accountable for every dollar I spend, although it sounds simple, was transformative. The path to budgeting and keeping my finances in order is laid out in front of me, it is time to do the work!

Dan Bouchante

Emma’s style is compassionate, respectful, concrete, positive and always strengths-based. She has a near-supernatural ability to actively gauge the change process in her clients and customize sessions accordingly, which makes her highly effective. In four sessions, my relationship to money has improved drastically from tense and overwhelmed to more easeful, empowered and curious. I signed up for another series immediately because the Launch Package was incredibly valuable. I can’t wait to continue to build financial literacy with Emma. Life-changing stuff!
