About Bari Tessler:

Bari Tessler is a financial therapist, author, and founder of The Art of Money (which is a methodology, a year-long money school, and a book!). She originally trained as a psychotherapist and received her masters degree in somatic psychology. Then, she ran a bookkeeping business for therapists, coaches, and artists and boy did she learn a lot! In 2001, she merged all her training and created a financial therapy methodology that weaves together personal, couple, and creativepreneur finances into one tapestry. In her group programs and private financial therapy, she has guided thousands of people to new, more loving, and refreshingly honest relationships with money. She is now on a mission to bring healing, un-shaming, and empowerment to their money relationships and all that it touches. Bari lives in Boulder, Colorado with her husband, son, and their many cats.
