Hey future retiree ( yep, that’s you! )

Let’s lock in the retirement you really want

Ready to stop fretting over your future, and finally know for sure that you’re on track for the retirement you want — at the age you want it to happen?! Get our support to plan for the exciting future you deserve.

Retirement anxiety sucks, right?

If you’re like so many folks we chat with about financial planning for retirement, you’ve tried to do the smart thing. Diving into the depths of the internet. Researching the heck out of your own personal finance stuff. Coming up with a general idea for retirement… that you might even feel pretty good about.

Yet those dang thoughts still creep in, right as your head hits the pillow, like…

“How do I know I’m actually doing this right?”

You may be kicking ass at things like budgeting and debt repayment. You don’t need a financial planner to get in the weeds with you there.


What if you could have a Certified Financial Planner™ come in, JUST to listen to your retirement goals, offer specific advice to accelerate your progress, and assure you once and for all that you’re on track for the future you want?

That’s exactly what the program on this page is all about.

So if you’re . . .

  • A DIYer who’s in good financial shape... and you just want a second opinion on your investment portfolios ...

  • A moneye nerd who envisions your retired self sipping mocktails by the pool in Bali ...  and you’d love an expert to confirm you’re on track for that ... 

  • Anyone ready to stop feeling overwhelmed about retirement, and confused about which advice applies to your specific situation...

  • A professional who’s been proactive about budgeting, but you want peace of mind that you’re doing the right things to retire when you want...

  • An individual (or couple!) who’s interested in recommendations for specific accounts, platforms, and investments so you can accelerate your path to retirement...

We can make it all happen with the . . .

We dig into your IDEAL retirement lifestyle, chat out the details, and start forming the plan to get you there.

Give me 4-6 weeks to complete your plan. No stone goes unturned as I come up with a tailored plan to meet your goals and accelerate your progress toward retirement.

3. Wrap up with a 60-minute Debrief session

We’ll spend an hour chatting one on one about your plan, and you’ll walk away with the detailed, personalized recommendations + Financial Action Summary checklist to put everything into action.
