Our mission is to help you use your human and financial resources to live your best life NOW and in the FUTURE.
Some ways we’re different from other advisors:
Advice Only – Never worry about being sold something you don’t want.
Flat dollar fee – You won't pay more because your accounts are growing.
No upfront fees – You get billed after the work is done - not before.
CFP® Professional – Rigorously trained and dedicated to your best interest.
Choice – You choose the level of service that fits your needs.
Low annual fee – Planning and investment management for one low fee.
No minimum asset requirement – We base our relationship on the value we bring NOT the value of the accounts you bring.
We help you understand, create and implement investment portfolios to help you reach your short and long-term goals.
It’s not about what you earn; it’s about what you get to keep that matters. Let us show you how to put more after-tax dollars in your pocket.
Insurance & Risk Planning
The unexpected will happen; we’ll help you purchase the insurance coverages you need and avoid being “sold” what you don’t.
Estate & Legacy Planning
What do you want for those most important to you? Let us help you develop a plan to responsibly and tax efficiently transfer your wealth.
Retirement & Employee Benefit Plans
Which plan should you choose? What selections should you choose during open enrollment? How does this affect your family?
Social Security & Income Planning
Should I draw early or wait? Should I roll over my lump sum or take a monthly distribution? How does this affect my spouse if I’m gone?
Student Loans & Education Planning
College will be one of your single largest expenses. We provide early and late-stage college funding and loan repayment strategies.
Healthcare & Medicare Planning
PPO, HMO, FSA, HSA, Medicare A, B, C, D. . . Let us help you make sense of it all.

This solution provides a research backed, fully diversified portfolio of low cost index funds, exchange traded funds, and/or institutional money managers. This service includes an annual check-up and is the ideal solution for those who need to get their investments in order but don't feel quite ready for an ongoing planning relationship.
