Cultivating Success as a Creative

To set up a consultation, please contact her by filling out the Initial Consultation form at Architecture of Meaning.

As an educational consultant, Jessica Thayer has spent over 20 years accompanying creatives as they discover causes of self-sabotaging behavior, develop strategies to identify and support their individual challenges, and learn to thrive by trusting their unique perspectives and needs.
