Improving your financial life

Our office is located in Santa Rosa, California and we provide financial advice to individual investors, families, trusts, non-profits and small businesses in all of Sonoma County, including Santa Rosa, Sebastapol, Petaluma, Healdsburg, Windsor and Cloverdale. Our mission is to improve your financial life by forming a confidential, fiduciary relationship with you - one that is based on trust, integrity, empowerment and an obligation to act in your best interest at all times.

Independent financial advisor advantage

We are objective, independent financial advisors. We are not obligated to any brokerage house, money management firm, mutual fund, insurance company or bank. Therefore we can offer completely independent advice and put all our focus on our clients' needs.

Our clients' interest always comes first

Our goal is to become our clients' trusted advisor in all aspects of their financial life for the long-term. We focus on developing a deep understanding of our clients' individual circumstances, priorities and goals. No two clients live the same life. Therefore every financial strategy we build is unique.

Long-term relationships are our specialty and we really listen and get to know our clients. Personal integrity and asset based compensation ensure that our interests are always aligned.

We coordinate all aspects of your financial life

We speak with you often to monitor and fine-tune your financial plan and your investments over the long term. We also coordinate with other professionals in your life - accountants, estate attorneys, divorce attorneys, insurance providers, and mortgage brokers.
