About Us

Professionally guiding you through your transition

Mission Statement

At Strategic Divorce Planning, we help you make smart financial decisions before, during, and after divorce. We do this by educating you on the process and your options, while connecting you with all the resources you may need. We empower you to make informed and not emotionally-driven financial decisions. By offering a practical and objective approach to your finances, we can help you answer the question “Am I going to be okay?” We will give you a sense of what your future financial life will look like before you sign that final agreement. Our goal is to help you feel more hopeful, comfortable, and secure about your financial future and the decisions you make.
