Hi, I’m Bari Tessler. I’m 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 financial therapy 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. I live in Boulder, Colorado with my husband, son, and our many cats. To learn more about Bari’s story, visit her website or follow her on Instagram and Facebook.

Bari earned a Masters in Somatic Psychology from Naropa University, working in the mental health field for over a decade before realizing her mission was to merge emotional literacy with financial literacy.
In 2001 she created a financial therapy methodology that integrates practical financial tools with a nurturing, body-centered approach and weaves together personal, couple, and creative entrepreneurial money teachings into one complete tapestry. For two decades now, she has guided thousands of people into more authentic, empowered relationships with money.
