The purpose of this paper is to introduce an integrative approach to working with clients experiencing problems related to financial disempowerment. The multi-stage model integrates three theoretically-driven psychotherapy approaches, including cognitive behavioral, narrative, and Virginia Satir's experiential therapies, and financial counseling techniques to increase one's sense of financial empowerment. A case study is included to demonstrate the applicability and effectiveness of the model.
