Hi, I’m Bari Tessler, M.A., a financial therapist and Founder of The Art of Money, a year-long money school for lay folks and a 4-month Mentor program for therapists, coaches and financial professionals. I trained as a Somatic Therapist and received a Masters degree from Naropa University in 1998. Then I ran a bookkeeping business for therapists and artists. In 2001, I merged all my training and created a somatic-based Financial Therapy methodology that I’ve been teaching for 20+ years. I am also the Author of The Art of Money: A Life-Changing Guide to Financial Happiness and The Art of Money Workbook. In my group programs and private financial therapy, I’ve guided thousands of people to new, more loving, and refreshingly honest relationships with money. And, I’m on a mission to bring healing, un-shaming, and empowerment to our money relationships and all that it touches. I live in Boulder, Colorado with my husband, son, many cats + large puppy.
