Thrivent – Leif Erickson

Proudly Serving the Forest Lake Area

It’s not easy to take that first step and begin a conversation about things we’ve been taught not to talk about. Money is a tough and often uncomfortable subject for all of us. That’s why I take a different approach when working with my clients. It starts with a conversation about you, your life and what matters most to you. We build a relationship based on open communication to figure out the best decisions for you. You’ll get clear, candid advice so you can feel comfortable and empowered to take the next step. I specialize in money management, retirement planning, and insurance protection. No matter what life brings or what goals you have, I am here for you.
