Palmer is a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist who also draws from Pia Mellody’s developmental trauma model and places her emphasis for recovery on setting and maintaining healthy boundaries.

In addition, Ms. Palmer’s work is useful for anyone wishing to set boundaries with someone with whom they are in a relationship. Easy to read and straightforward, Moving beyond Betrayal is a book that helps readers find both solace and practical advice.
The Art of Money: A Life-Changing Guide to Financial Happiness by Bari Tessler
Bari Tessler’s website says this: “In working with thousands of individuals, couples, and creative entrepreneurs over the past fifteen years, I’ve learned almost nobody received a real education about money, let alone how to navigate our emotions around it.” In The Art of Money, Tessler walks the reader through a body check-in that seems simple, but is powerful in increasing awareness of how we react to money flows, decisions, and legacies in our lives.
Her framework for making money decisions helps guide readers on their “Money Date” through a non-emotional discussion around money and how we each make our decisions.
Tessler is the founder of The Art of Money, which is a global, year-long money school, which integrates Money Healing, Money Practices, and Money Maps. Her book is well-organized and covers the financial issues we face on a daily basis without being tedious and uninteresting. Tessler’s approach applies heart-centered, practical and intelligent introspection for readers to mature their relationships with money.
