Sona Wealth Counsel

Fee-Based Wealth Management

About Us



The origins of the word SONA can be traced back to an old Irish word meaning good fortune, prosperity, and happiness. 

SONA is therefore an excellent representation of what we try to embody every day in the services that we provide to our clients as we work with them to achieve long-term financial success.

Our Approach

We use an integrated approach to financial planning and wealth management. We understand that tax efficiency can be as important to a client’s long-term financial results as is the portfolio rates of return, and that there may be tax and estate planning issues related to a specific investment strategy. As a result, we ensure that we integrate tax planning, debt management, cash flow needs, insurance, estate issues, and investment strategies as part of our comprehensive approach to financial management – linking all aspects of a family’s finances to balance their short-term and long-term goals.

We build and nurture long-term client relationships based on a client-centric service model that focuses on personal interaction, individual attention, professionalism, and integrity.
