I have a way of unearthing and getting straight to the crux of the matter. Then getting quickly to real-world solutions to resolve the issues, short-term and long. In my work, much is about the psychology of money in your life. I'm not a financial planner or an investment advisor (I leave that to those professionals). My true skill is getting your (and your family's) financial life on solid footing, and removing any blocks to keeping it that way.

"Concrete, practical advice along with genuine insight into the meaning of money. This combination of good psychology and good financial advice is, in my experience, rare and valuable."

–Thomas Moore, author of Care 

of the Soul

"Written with authority, experience, and insight about money's role in our doubts and hopes, successes and failures, dreams and dramas. There are important lessons here about money's potential as a tool in spiritual as well as material interchanges between ones' conscience and one's heart, one's desires and one's bank account."

The Money Trap


Ron Gallen, where do I begin? I'm a single mother and a business owner, but regardless of my professional success, I felt like I was always treading water, juggling and chewing gum at the same time.  I argued against seeing another professional,  haven't we all had countless CPAs, attorneys and counselors? Ron Gallen is a different story. 


Ron worked with me, my past, and my present situation, and helped me use my greatest asset, myself!, to repair the cracks and grow what needed growing. He set me straight and turned my head around at the same time. 


He has so much knowledge, experience, humility and humor, I'm not sure if he's a CPA, an attorney, a psychologist or a magician. Maybe a little bit of each. Anyone can read a self-help book or hire a professional, but this is more like school for the soul so that it effortlessly moves in a new way.


Ron Gallen is a sort of 'financial therapist' - no matter what you’re facing, or going through, he can first help you break it down and organize it out so that it makes sense to you and isn’t nearly as stressful or scary.  Then, once you have your arms around the issue(s), he puts together a plan designed to solve whatever it is you’re navigating.  Ron helped me organize my finances while getting a divorce (something I dreaded) - and set me up for financial success.  I would recommend Ron a million times over - he’s truly fantastic.


Working with Ron has been a game changer: He has revolutionized my relationship with money and business and really life in general. He is so much more than a therapist or a financial consultant. I like to refer to him as my financial guru. He has been a trusted advisor to me for over 15 years. I have consulted with Ron on everything from starting a business and marketing strategies to dealing with investments and sensitive money issues involving my family.


He has wonderful advice and is able to not only discuss the financial side but he has an empathetic side that is able to get to the heart of the matter and look at my situation in a thoughtful and comprehensive way. I have recommended Ron to several of my friends and family members. I can not imagine where I would be without Ron’s down to earth and perceptive approach.
