Hi there, I'm Bari Tessler. I am a somatic therapist and a financial therapist, author, and founder of The Art of Money (which is a methodology, a year-long money school, and a book!). I originally trained as a psychotherapist and received my masters degree in somatic psychology. Then, I ran a bookkeeping business for therapists, coaches, and artists and boy did I learn a lot! In 2001, I merged all my training and created a methodology that weaves together personal, couple, and creativepreneur finances into one tapestry. In my group programs and private financial therapy, I’ve guided thousands of people to new, more loving, and refreshingly honest relationships with money. I’m on a mission to bring healing, un-shaming, and empowerment to our money relationships and all that it touches. Plus, I just love doing this work. It is, without a doubt, my life's passion. I live in Boulder, Colorado with my husband, son, and our many cats.
