The values-based financial planning practiced by Resonate, in which we integrate all facets of your life, has special significance to the LGBT community. Our compassionate, relationship-driven approach for all of our clients gives you a safe space to discuss, plan, and achieve meaningful and life-enhancing financial objectives. For the LGBT community, this approach offers a welcome and productive environment to overcome the overt discrimination and lack of understanding experienced by many.

While advocates of civil rights have made significant progress for the LGBT population in recent years, many challenges remain. Beyond concerns with basic civil rights, many in the LGBT community encounter uncertainty when dealing with the complexities of short- and long-term health care, taxes, retirement, aging issues, and legacies. At Resonate, you will find the expertise and understanding to answer these challenges with a personalized strategy that considers all of your concerns and reflects the purpose of your life and money.

Whether you’re married or in a committed relationship, Resonate’s purposeful planning will help you face any life event, including dementia, diminished capacity directives, or when you lose a loved one.
