About Me

Hi! I’m Holly.

After serving as a therapist to married couples, I found that personal finances cause the most contention in relationships. This insight compelled me to enter the world of finance so I could help families avoid the heartache that comes with financial stress and give them the tools they need to build a steady plan for the future.

As a licensed wealth strategist, Ramsey Solutions Master Financial Coach, and proud advocate for the Deaf community, I’ve been helping people for more than ten years with only the kind of guidance I’d give to my own family.

After graduating with a master’s in clinical mental health counseling from Gallaudet University, I began working as a licensed clinical psychotherapist, specializing in assessment and treatment of DSM-V disorders and providing solution-oriented therapy services. When promoted to an administrative position, I gained invaluable experience providing clinical supervision to employees and masters-level counseling interns servicing 150+ Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing clients in the Greater Seattle area.

I am a proud advocate for the Deaf community and American Sign Language users and was appointed by Governor Locke to serve on the Board of Trustees for the Washington School for the Deaf. I served as chair of the board through the school’s transition to embracing a bi-lingual and bi-cultural approach to learning, while maintaining a comprehensive approach to policy. I developed a working relationship with major stakeholders in the ASL community and assisted in the passing of several legislative bills on behalf of the Washington School for the Deaf.

My sons, Logan and Ty, have inspired me to advocate for hearing children of deaf parents, a subgroup within the deaf community. As the first president of the Washington chapter of Kids of Deaf Adults (KODA), I felt compelled to spearhead a campaign to promote family and community awareness of the specialness of hearing children in Deaf-parented households and the unique challenges they face.

After so many years in the field of counseling, witnessing the stress that financial conflicts cause in relationships, I shifted gears and entered the world of finance. It was my passion for bringing hope in financial matters, coupled with my commitment to the Deaf community, that compelled me to begin TetonPines Financial.

Being born and raised in a small farming community on the Snake River Plain on the Idaho side of the Grand Tetons, I acquired a great love for the Tetons and the majestic evergreen trees that surround them. The name TetonPines Financial was born out of the natural beauty I experienced there and symbolizes the unlimited growth and potential available to each and every person.

The key to wealth is getting your financial house in order, and I believe that anyone can be wealthy if they are willing to put in the effort to learn how money works.

I am honored to walk with my clients on the journey to financial independence!
