"Committed to understanding your needs and helping you achieve your vision of success"

Wealth Planning is about much more than money.  True Wealth is your ability to live the kind of life that you want, to reach the goals that you have set for yourself, your family and your business and to create a legacy for the future that reflects your values.  

I combine my expertise and experience with a team of professionals to give my clients what I believe to be the best advice and information available.  There are tremendous resources available to help my clients through TD Wealth Private Investment Advice and TD Canada Trust.  In addition, I have access to many professionals in our community which help me meet the specific needs of my clients.  Whatever the particular planning need that my clients have, I will endeavor to find the best possible advice available to assist them.

My philosophy recognizes that our clients are unique.  The foundation of my approach is that our clients require an individual plan, designed to meet their specific needs and flexible enough to respond to life’s challenges and opportunities.  I don’t make a recommendation until I fully understand their entire situation. 

I am different because the process I follow for my clients is comprehensive while remaining personal.  I take a consultative approach to the advice I provide, always focusing on the needs of our clients.  While I believe that a formalized approach allows our clients to make informed decisions, I know that our first step is to gain an in-depth understanding of our clients, their families, their businesses and their hopes for the future.  My clients have come to expect that their relationship with TD Wealth Private Investment Advice and myself is a team based approach. 

“I believe that my clients need quality advice to help them reach their personal goals.  A solid financial platform is an integral part of a client's investment plan, but that platform needs to be built on their life goals first."

    If your work is causing you stress, it may mean more than just burning the candle at both ends. It may affect your health, and the bottom line for your employer. Dr. David Posen, AKA Dr. Calm, talks about the psychology of workplace stress, and what we can do to reign in the pressure.
