Building a Goal-Oriented Financial Plan

Hi there! I’m Gretchen, a NY-based financial consultant who specializes in helping women of all ages achieve their financial goals. I understand that many women feel intimidated or uneducated about their financial matters, and consequently, they often don’t seek the professional help they need to achieve the lifestyle they want. In addition, they often think they don’t have enough money saved to benefit from a financial planner or they falsely believe it costs too much to hire someone like me.

My practice is dedicated to helping these women understand their options and learn about financial planning in a down-to-earth, accessible way so that they feel empowered and in control of their family’s well-being. Whether they are preparing for retirement, starting a college savings fund, or becoming financially independent, my advice focuses on building my clients’ confidence around financial matters and on achieving their unique financial goals, one step at a time.

If you’re ready to get started, request a free discovery session with me so we can begin a dialogue. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals and to creating the life you’ve always wanted.
