    Dr. Naomi Win - Uncertainty

    Dr. Naomi Win - Uncertainty

    This week on Standard Deviations with Dr. Daniel Crosby, Dr. Crosby is joined by Dr. Naomi Win. Dr. Win is a psychologist and behavioral finance analyst with Orion. Her work draws on clinical practice and current research to bridge advisor expertise and client behavior in a working alliance.


    Following the completion of a Master's degree in Psychoanalysis, in 2011, Naomi worked in a range of settings, including public education and private practice psychotherapy. Though the ecosystems differed, she found two common tensions, predictive of each individual's growth: the psychological scaffolds to cultivate a meaningful life, and adequate material security to support themselves in that process. She believes that by contending with what must change, and reconciling with what can not, we find: elevation via obstacles, the strength to face anxiety with purpose, tolerate ambiguity with perspective, and the self-trust required to succeed. Earning a doctorate allowed Naomi to bring her personal ethos into professional focus, a drive she brings to the behavioral finance force at Orion. Outside of that, Naomi can be found busy with motherhood, or engaged in community support of public education.
