A Life-Focused Planning Approach

Are you feeling stuck when it comes to taking action in your financial life? Maybe you're too busy and overwhelmed by options, aren't sure how to talk to your partner or family members about money-related decisions, or feel unprepared for the future or retirement.

I'll listen to your concerns and help you sort it all out with a financial plan that tells you what's going on, what needs to happen and what to do during each chapter in your financial life.

What Can Working With a Financial Advisor Do for You?

Sure, you can read the latest trends about money management, investing, minimizing taxes and retirement planning—if you have the time and desire to do so. What’s harder to deal with on your own are the emotions that money can bring to the surface. My planning process is designed to help you:​​

Learn to talk more effectively about finances with a partner or family members.

Identify your top life and financial goals—and why they're important.

Talk through emotionally difficult life changes that can affect your money, like death or divorce.

Anticipate and prepare for big transitions like a new job, a career downsize or retirement.

Explore your options when it's time to make a financial decision.

Get (and keep!) your financial house in order.

A wise person should have money in their head, but not in their heart. 

— Jonathan Swift
