"To say that training with Karen McCall is the best investment I've ever made is an understatement - the process she created is phenomenal, both in how it teaches people to take control of their finances, and how it gets to the root of deep-seated emotional blockages around money.…
The skills and self-confidence I gained from training with Karen allowed me to open my own financial counseling practice and create a thriving business. I've been successfully self-employed, making great money for over 12 years now - and my clients' lives have truly changed as a result of the powerful Financial Recovery process."
~Mikelann R. Valterra, MA & Founder, The Women's Earning Institute
"Karen McCall is THE pioneer in the field of overspending, underearning, and chronic debting... and my long-time mentor. She was one of many professionals I visited in those early desperate days of my own financial crisis. She was, however, the only one who told me I was an "underearner". Initially I balked at the accusation. But she broke through my denial, and I became her client... then her student. I often wonder, if it wasn’t for Karen, would I be doing what I’m doing now?"
~-Barbara Stanny, The Leading Authority on Women and Wealth
"Taking the training at the Financial RecoverySM Institute was nothing short of life changing. I wanted to become a financial coach, but honestly thought I could just wing it. I was so wrong.
The things I learned in training have been invaluable in my practice. Karen is a rock star and has done all the work to set trainees up for success. Today my business is thriving!
I live the life I want to live, not beholden to a corporation for my livelihood. The freedom, peace of mind and financial growth that this training has provided me was everything that I had anticipated. I know of no other training of this kind out there. Karen is the best!”
"The counselor training program with Karen McCall and the Financial RecoverySM Institute changed my life. In the first year after becoming a certified money coach, I earned at least double the tuition.
I created a completely sustainable business within three years and was able to let go of my previous career. The program not only transformed my own relationship with money, but prepared me for an incredibly wide range of client cases.
The training was very strong in setting me up with documents, resources and well thought out logistics of how to run my own business. Karen and I have remained in close contact since graduating and she continues to mentor me, a relationship I value immensely.
It’s my sixth year of coaching and I have clients on four continents and have been featured in several major media outlets. I’m very grateful for the training program and highly recommend it!”
~Carrie Friedberg, SF Money Coach
"Training as a Financial Recovery Counselor is one of the best decisions I have ever made! The content of the course and the design of the training program allowed me to move into seeing clients feeling both confident and fully supported.
The work is motivating and inspiring, just as the training itself is. Calling into our weekly two-hour classes soon became a highlight of my week. As an added bonus, Karen McCall is the ideal mentor.
She is warm and nurturing, she holds you accountable, encourages you to grow, and then celebrates your successes with you. To top it off, you get to share the journey with others, allowing their experiences to add to the richness inherent in the work."
~Sarah McMurray, Auckland, New Zealand
"I took the training in 2009 and I found it to be absolutely phenomenal. It was everything I expected, plus more. And I’m not even sure what I expected, but it was practical, both personally and professionally, and showed me a way to help people over a longer period of time.
In the past what I’ve done is answer a lot of questions, write books, and share my information, hoping that information is helpful. But Karen’s training allowed me to work with clients on a one-on-one basis for a longer period of time, helping them successfully implement the knowledge and advice that I’ve gained over 22 years and in Karen’s training as well.
It’s a really strong training program. We had a very diverse group of students in our group and we all benefited from learning together and grew personally and professionally. I just can’t recommend it highly enough. It’s a great investment in your future."

"I signed up for Financial Recovery Training because I felt that it would give me the holistic tools I needed to accomplish my mission of empowering women financially. The training exceeded my expectations. It not only provided the tools I needed to help clients transform their relationship with money, it gave me the support and guidance I needed to launch my business as a financial recovery counselor.
My work is very rewarding because within just a few sessions, clients begin to feel relief from the gnawing anxiety they have felt for years when dealing with their money. In addition, I get to control my work schedule while earning a good income.
It’s truly no exaggeration to say that Financial Recovery Counselor Training has transformed my life."
"I can’t say enough about how awesome and worthwhile Karen’s training is! It is so comprehensive and valuable in all aspects. I enrolled in the program after retiring from teaching and am so glad I did, as I have found it extremely rewarding in working with clients.
As a Financial RecoverySM Counselor, I have not only been able to supplement my retirement income, but have found great satisfaction in the work. What’s unique about Financial Recovery’s process is its emotional component, not just the practical, which I’ve found to be so important to clients for long-lasting results in staying conscious and connected to their money.
Giving hope to others who are caught in 'The Money-Life Drain' and helping them not only gain control of their money, but discovering with them the underlying emotional levels that drive their money behaviors, has been deeply gratifying.
It has been wonderful to watch clients’ progression from feeling despair, to that of confidence, in improving their relationship with money. Anyone taking this training will find it truly beneficial in all respects."
