We're fee-only with no account minimums. Welcome to independent financial planning services personalized just for you.

We're proud to be an independent financial planning practice. We've taken the fiduciary oath (a fiduciary is someone you can trust to explicitly put your interests above their own). We don't accept sales commissions, recommend products or services because a large company is telling us to simply because that doesn't serve you well. And we charge transparently for everything we do: hourly, as needed, and on a project basis.

We offer multiple, customized services to help you make progress on your financial goals.

For more information about any plan, book a complimentary meeting with us here.

Your Collaborative Planning Session

A collaborative session is a wonderful lower-cost way to begin working with a financial planner. In this session, we can discuss your questions in a meeting together, led by your areas of interest.

We'll work together to create an “Action Plan” for you to follow up on the most important action items from our meeting. Clients have used this session for basic help with budgeting and saving for financial goals, general investment advice, guidance for young families just starting out, college planning basics, second opinions, and topline reviews of your general financial landscape.

You always have the option of requesting further services for specific topics following a Collaborative Planning Session. We'll give you a custom quote after a Get Acquainted Meeting. The average individual or couple invests around $1800 in this session.
