Welcome To Koru Financial Therapy

Koru Financial Therapy works with individuals, couples, and entrepreneurs set on improving their financial health. The Koru symbol underpins the financial and therapeutic approach of this practice.


The dimensions of financial health include but are not limited to financial compatibility,  money management, financial infidelity, financial PTSD, wealth inheritance, financial independence, and financial caregiving.

In therapy, I utilize evidence-based approaches including Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness, to identify strengths and weaknesses, increase awareness, and teach tools aimed at changing behaviors related to financial decision making.

Financial therapy is right for you when you want to understand your history, values and emotions surrounding money, strengthen your financial literacy and management of money and change behaviors related to money to reach your financial goals. Contact me to schedule a 15 minute free session to discuss your needs.

What Financial Therapy is not:

Financial planner – this person manages your personal finances and makes recommendations

Accountant aka CPA or Bookeeper – this person keeps or inspects financial accounts to align with IRS rules

In therapy, we can take a look at your financials to assess strengths and weaknesses around spending and saving habits. We will spend the time to focus on how your decision making impacts your finances, and identify tools to organize your finances in a way that makes sense to you which can make the process of working with a planner or accountant more productive.

About Mariah

Hi, my name is Mariah Hudler and I received my Masters of Social Work from the University of California, Berkeley in 2004 and am a licensed clinical social worker in CA (2015, #65613 ). I completed my BA in Sociology from the University of California, San Diego and my Executive MBA from the University of Waikato in New Zealand. I now live in the Sacramento area with my husband, son, and cat.

As my license is in California,  I can provide therapy if only residing in this state. I am available through HIPAA compliant video conferencing if you prefer.


Financial therapy pairs my clinical expertise with my long-time interest and work in the financial arena, specifically, understanding the why of finances and how finances can be a tool to freedom and choice rather than a mental and emotional burden.
