About Us

My goal is to facilitate agreement in divorce while being realistic and providing thorough education for individuals or couples in order to achieve empowered settlement decisions.

What is a CDFA®?

A CDFA® is an experienced financial professional who has completed training, education and a certification process and is skilled at analyzing data and providing expertise on the financial issues of divorce. The role of the CDFA® professional is to assist the client and his or her attorney to understand how the decisions he or she makes today will impact the client’s financial future. A CDFA® can help you avoid costly mistakes and help formulate more efficient, cost effective settlements.
