Why I Became a Financial Divorce Specialist (CFDS)
In my former career as a financial consultant, I saw countless families dispute over finances. I witnessed firsthand the stress that an unexpected, unfamiliar situation like separation and divorce could have on my clients.
After learning that the divorce rate in Canada is over 50%, I decided there had to be a better way.
I made it my goal to provide financial advice that was truly about helping people and making a difference. That’s why I become a financial divorce strategist.
If you think you could benefit from my help, I’d love to help you understand your options.
I have seen many people of all ages in family disputes. I understand where you are. When you work with me, I care, I listen, and I put you first every time.
I have a reliable, unbiased, and persistent approach to customer service, mixed with an open mind and an outside-the-box approach to life.
And as an internationally recognized professional Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and as a Chartered Financial Divorce Specialist (CFDS), I am obligated to adhere to a strict code of ethics and to continuing education.
The result is trustworthy financial advice that you gives you a new sense of confidence.
My goal is to help individuals and couples going through the process of separation and divorce.
I teach you everything you need to know about your financial situation, empowering you to make smart decisions for your new future.
I deliver black-and-white financial advice—putting you in a better position to write a separation agreement that works for you. This includes unbiased options when it comes to splitting assets and debts, numbers for equalization and support payments, and more.
You can then make a decision that feels right to you that you won’t regret later. As a result, you will have a financial roadmap and can move forward with your life.
