What stands out about my approach to financial planning

I have an MA in psychology, which allows me to go beyond purely financial considerations to address family dynamics and personal issues, such as divorce or a loved one battling addiction. I bring a caring and nonjudgmental approach as I seek to help clients with the mental and emotional obstacles that can affect long-term wealth planning.

Who I work with

I seek to help families who are insecure or inexperienced with investing become more financially literate, engaged in their life plans and better equipped to weather ups and downs, both in their lives and in respect to volatility in the capital markets.

Why I work at Capital Group Private Client Services

In a word, integrity. I was drawn to the firm by the intellectual capital, the collaborative culture and the premium placed on valuing clients as human beings. The fact that we’re privately held allows us to keep a long-term view and a client focus in everything we do.
