Creating Your Plan

It's hard to make informed decisions without information.

My integrative retirement planning process helps you understand your current financial picture and create a plan that's aligned to what's important to you and designed to evolve with you.

We'll create your plan over a series of 1:1 strategy sessions and using my clients-only SmartRetirementTracker® online software to track and analyze your numbers in real-time. 

To kick off the planning process, I offer a complimentary getting-to-know-you meeting.

If we're a good fit, we'll schedule our first strategy session.

Putting Your Plan In Action

Retirement planning is an ongoing process, not a single event.

Your planning should evolve to meet your changing needs and goals.

My integrative process is designed to achieve just that. Once we put your retirement plan in action, we'll meet 2-3 more times annually to review your situation and make adjustments as needed.

You'll also receive regular email updates and action steps as I track your progress using my SmartRetirementTracker® software.

Together, we'll evaluate future opportunities as we make informed planning decisions today.
