Why not now?

Tired of traditional advisors only concerned about assets?  Or being spoken at, or even ignored during client meetings?   We know that wealth is more than money and I get that you are unique, just like me. And because of that, there are several ways we can work together.  

 

See what seems in alignment with what you think you might need or want to learn more about, and then schedule a "Q & A Call" so that we may identify if there's a way for me to support you, or your organization directly or provide you with a another resource, including a another professional or an organization.

Financial Planning

Retirement Planning

Saving for retirement and withdrawing in retirement are 2 distinct phases with different needs and strategies - yet both need to consider tax planning to be most efficient and reduce risk. Let me help you maximize your IRA's, 401K, and small business retirement savings needs to ensure you are on track to retire comfortably.

Education & College Planning

Your partner in analyzing college funding and withdrawal payment strategies for children & grandchildren to ensure they make sense for your situation.

Sandwich Generation

Disability or age can leave you in a position to care for a parent while raising your own children. This can create another set of considerations to navigate, increase expenses and create stress; medicaid/medicare, skilled care, nursing homes, in home help, doctor visits.  I've been there and understand.

Tax Planning

Paying off your home doesn't always make the most sense. Withdrawing from retirement assets in a less efficient manner helps dissipate assets quicker.

Risk Management

The point of insurance is to mitigate your loss of income or assets due to Illness, disability or death. Periodic reviewing of disability, life, auto, annuity & long term care policies ensure they still make sense.

Estate Planning

Working with your or my trusted legal & tax professionals to review trust, wills, and beneficiaries designations to support your legacy wishes and reduce potential exposure to estate tax and probate costs.

Money Coaching

Individual

4 step process - Individual Money Coaching is a process that involves 4-5 sessions that explore your relationship with money using the 8 Money Archetypes as developed by the work of Deborah Price.  Through this process you will uncover feelings and beliefs around money and discover where those came from; understanding your money Archetypes, where and when they show up, as well as how they play together and the reasons behind your conflict of issues with money.  We'll examine how these experiences have manifested in your life, affected your personal or financial decision making and what may be holding you back from taking actions or shifting your perspective.  Once we have begun to understand the WHY, we can  heal and clear those unconscious holds and stop running on autopilot  and being frustrated by the same outcome.

This experiential program brings to light areas that you may not have been aware of.  You'll learn how we as humans are hard-wired around money and many times react from an unconscious place (usually getting an unwanted result).  Once you have a better understanding of your basic money patterns and where they came from, we can begin developing an action plan. But let's be honest, real change can only take place if you are willing to do things differently than they have been done in the past, this includes implementing new strategies and actions.
