Financial Planning

Addressing your entire financial situation may seem like a daunting task.  You have different desires at different stages of your life. We view financial planning as a comprehensive approach in working with you to address your financial situation.

First, we will work with you to expand our knowledge of your financial profile and bring awareness to your financial needs. We will help you set priorities and act promptly on the most urgent issues.  Next, we will craft and implement the financial solutions that best address your needs.  Because we are familiar with your entire situation, we are able to recommend customized advice that offers solutions for each of your concerns while looking at the big picture.

Finally, we will meet with you periodically and review your wealth management plan. As your life situation changes, we will continually reassess how your existing wealth management solutions align with your present and future needs and goals.

Many people find the investment planning process to be intimidating, and will often not review investment strategies as often as their lives change.  As life and goals change, your investment strategy may need to be modified to accommodate those changes.

Considering that education costs increase yearly, your children’s education – as well as your current and future lifestyles – depend on the wealth you build up now. It is important to regularly review your specific goals, and actively plan for education costs.


Illness and injury can happen to anyone. In fact, a person has a one in four chance of becoming severely ill or disabled. If you’ve planned for this possibility, when was the last time you reviewed your plan and does it take into account recent life events? As life changes, so do your insurance needs to protect your lifestyle and your family who are dependent on your income.


Asset and income protection includes strategies to shield assets from illness, taxation, and frivolous claims from third parties. Successfully planning for these potential events cannot be understated considering they affect other aspects of your planning process including investment planning and insurance planning.

Living with debt may not only cause stress, but can also delay you from the life you want. Reason Financial offers effective planning strategies to help you move past the debt you have and prepare for major purchases and unexpected costs in the future.

Reason Financial will work to minimize income and estate taxes and help maximize the financial opportunities you provide to your heirs and chosen beneficiaries. The goal is to help you leave behind the legacy you desire.


Any event that forces dramatic and sweeping changes, such as marriage, divorce, birth, death or a large inheritance is considered a special situation.
