Financial planning, financial counseling, and financial therapy are separate but complimentary financial services designed to support clients’ financial goals and well-being. But how do you know which service you, or your client, needs at any given moment? In this episode, we’re joined by two leaders in the financial therapy space, Kristy Archuleta & Sonya Lutter.
