Jim Uren, CFP®

The fact that you are visiting my blog likely means that you already know the pain and uncertainty that follows the death of a spouse.

Not only is there heavy emotional pain and anxiety, but on top of all that you are asked to make significant decisions that will affect your financial future – a future that may now feel less certain and secure.

My name is Jim Uren and I am a financial advisor who specializes in working with women just like you – women who have (recently or years earlier) experienced the death of a spouse.

My temperament and educational background have made me well suited to serve as a financial guide to individuals in need of wise financial counsel after the loss of a spouse.

I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional with a master’s degree in counseling psychology and I am very comfortable working in situations like yours that many other advisors find it too difficult and awkward.

If you are looking for a financial advisor who is the right fit for you and your situation, I am happy to schedule a time for us to talk.  For more information on this complimentary meeting, click here.
