Revealing your hopes and fears regarding your livelihood is a process that requires trust. How do you find a financial adviser whom you can trust? Start by talking with a fee-only Certified Financial PlannerTM (CFP) who does not sell commission-based investments, annuities or insurance.


A personal note from Dave: We do not provide a cold, all-business service. We provide a lasting, rewarding partnership. I am passionate about helping my clients succeed with the financial plans that become an integral and fundamental part of their lives. I care about them on a professional level, and I care about their lives. I still enjoy my work, after all of these years, because each case is unique. Watching the rewards unfold for each family brings me happiness on a personal level.
