What Is IFS Informed Financial Therapy™?

Rick Kahler, who has been certified by the financial therapy association FTA, combines Informed Financial Therapy with Internal Family SystemsSM (IFSSM). This focused process allows his clients to identify and modify extreme money beliefs, resulting in the ability to integrate new financial behaviors which enhance financial wellbeing. This overt practice of addressing financial beliefs and behaviors allows progression to financial wellbeing more quickly than in traditional IFS Therapy. This means you’ll be able to improve your relationship with money and make better financial plans.

Your financial planner will consider your behavioral issues and give you financial advice. They will also use evidence-based methods to help you set financial goals and help change the way you feel and behave with money.

He is a Certified IFS PractitionerSM, Certified Financial Therapist-Level 1™, Certified Financial Transitionist™.
