Financial Planning for Individuals, Couples, & Families

No two individuals, couples or families are the same. Every situation has unique qualities and perspectives.
So planning your financial independence should be a distinctly customized experience.


We work with our clients to first help them define what financial independence means to them. For some that may mean providing an education to children and grandchildren, buying a dream vacation home, meeting the special needs of a family member, managing an inheritance or retiring five years early. Others may need assistance in developing an estate plan, diversifying investments, understanding employer benefits, or reviewing family business agreements and transfer plans – the list is endless and the decisions are uniquely your own. We know that finding a financial advisor you can trust is of the utmost importance, which is why our advisors all act as fiduciaries and we are a fee-only firm.

Do I Need a Financial Plan?

You may have done some planning along the way, but as you reflect on how to enjoy your success, you might ask yourself, “Is it enough?”. There are as many different ways to enjoy what you’ve built – and to pass it along – as there are potential missteps that can hinder your dreams. That’s why you need a plan – one that maximizes your life’s work.

Stay On Track

We understand that life changes, such as marriage, divorce, a new job, a spouse’s death, or the purchase or sale of a home come with financial implications. These events may require modifications to your plan to ensure that your investment plan keeps moving in the right direction. However, when such events arise, we don’t want you to be concerned about your finances. We are happy to have review meetings to accommodate these financial changes and help you stay on track.
