We participate in the forming of the future by virtue of our capacity to conceive of and respond to new possibilities, to bring them out of imagination and try them in actuality. ~ Rollo May
Introduction

You've read the books. You've watched and listened to the experts. You've taken all of this advice and applied it to getting your bills paid, keeping your debt under control, and saving. So now what? 

Do you feel you could have more to show for all of your hard work? Are you even confident that things are headed in the right direction? Or are you facing a major change in your life, and not quite sure if you're as prepared as you can be?

Our time together will be about taking stock of where you are in your financial life, identifying areas for further growth, and then taking active steps to help you further develop your ability to manage your finances knowledgeably, effectively, and in ways that are congruent with your values and life goals.

  • I'm an Accredited Financial Counselor (AFC®) certified by the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education (AFCPE®).

  • I have 15+ years experience as a Counselor, Coach, & Tutor of Personal Finance effectively working with clients using telepresence technologies.

  • I appreciate the importance of lifelong learning in managing personal finances, and how our personal finances and technologies can be useful tools to help us achieve the quality of life we want for ourselves and our loved ones.
