We are fee-only financial planners who serve clients throughout Northern Virginia as well as in Rhode Island with our holistic approach that does not focus solely on investments or retirement savings. We understand that personal finances can be complicated and confusing.

We work with you to ensure that you understand your personal financial situation and what you need to do to achieve your goals. We want you to have the knowledge and confidence to plan for your financial independence.

Our approach, charging an hourly or project fee for our services, with the option of a retainer/subscription fee program for clients who want to establish an ongoing relationship with Safe Harbor, is very different from most other financial planners. We also offer a service option for our clients that provides very low cost professional investment management in a collaborative relationship between Safe Harbor and First Ascent Asset Management. As members of the nationwide Garrett Planning Network of fee-only financial planners we act as a fiduciary for our clients, which means we must work only in the client's best interest and avoid any conflicts of interest. One other difference with Safe Harbor is that our fee schedule is available right on this website so there are no surprises and no hidden fees.
We invite you to contact us to arrange a no-cost, no-obligation "get acquainted" meeting to learn more about how Safe Harbor can help you manage your own money.
