Taking the first step towards  empowering yourself with a strong financial plan may seem overwhelming. We understand that and have designed a clear and well-defined process focused on answering your questions and helping guide you in reaching your goals.

Our ProcessWe Discover

Our process is straightforward —we listen. We take the time to truly get to know our clients, so we can better appreciate your needs. Through this discovery process, we are able to analyze and compile personalized financial solutions tailored to your unique set of circumstances. Our discovery process helps us get to know you and your financial goals.

We PlanWe Plan

Having no financial plan is like skydiving without a parachute. Through goal-oriented planning, we develop strategies that promote purpose and clarity. One of the most powerful steps in the process of building a sturdy financial foundation is to discover where you are now and decide where you want to be. This information acts as a blueprint for your customized financial plan.

process_2We Empower

Our goal is to empower our clients to make sound financial decisions. We arm you with information, strategies and tools that put you in the driver’s seat when it comes to what is important to you. We pride ourselves on developing partnerships with clients. This means providing trusted financial counsel, all while working at a pace that you’re comfortable with.

process_4We’re Transparent

You never have to question the integrity of our financial recommendations. Our services are delivered through a fee-only structure where we apply an annual fee based on account value. Costs are discussed upfront and our clients can track them at any time. As fiduciaries we don’t benefit from “pushing” specific products – and in fact despise the premise entirely. For us, this transparent approach is not only refreshing, but builds trust for long-term relationships with all of our clients.
