Comprehensive plan, $9991

A comprehensive financial plan includes a thorough analysis of your entire financial picture. Your CFP Professional will look at all aspects of your life, your short- and long-term goals, and then build a holistic plan to help you achieve them. This roadmap will help you stay on track and make important financial decisions down the line.


A comprehensive plan covers every area of personal finance, making it great for people with complex situations. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Retirement planning
  • Education planning
  • Tax management
  • General estate management
  • Budgeting
  • Cash-flow and debt management
  • Insurance review
  • Investments
  • Planning for life events
  • Special needs and disability planning 
Custom plan, $1502/hour

A custom financial plan covers certain areas of your financial health based on where you'd like the most help. Your CFP Professional will help you prioritize your goals so you can tackle those most important to you now and focus on other, lower-priority ones sometime in the future.


A custom plan is great for people who feel pretty good about their overall financial situation but are looking for clarity and guidance in a particular area. Each plan is individually tailored, but some of the most common goals we build custom plans for include:

  • Retiring comfortably
  • Paying off debt
  • Getting married
  • Paying for college
  • Starting a family
  • Buying a home
  • Changing careers
  • Building a budget
