Contrary to popular belief, money does not buy happiness. Acclaimed author, educator and speaker, Thayer Willis, offers counsel, support and inspiration to individuals and families coping with the psychological challenges of wealth. 

Meet Thayer

Author / Speaker / Wealth Counselor

Thayer’s understanding of the complex issues stemming from financial abundance is personal. A child of wealth herself, she experienced the privilege and opportunities, as well as the isolation and confusion, often associated with wealth. Her own journey to purpose and fulfillment led to a desire to help others who struggle with similar issues.


A pioneer in the field of wealth counseling and a licensed, practicing psychotherapist, Thayer has been helping families around the world overcome emotional obstacles and live in harmony with wealth since 1990.
