Scott A Goldstein, CFP®, CLU®

Wealth Management Advisor


Scott Goldstein resides in Deerfield and has three children: Dani, Hannah and Levi. His oldest daughter Dani works professionally in Chicago. Hannah holds a fellowship with a Washington D.C.-based organization, and Levi is a freshman at Cornell University in New York. Family is very important to Scott and he is passionate about staying involved in their lives as they grow up.

Scott also is a firm believer in self growth. He has fostered a passion for mindfulness, and recently graduated from UCLA's Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC) as a Trained Mindfulness Facilitator (TMF). Mindful awareness can be defined as paying attention to present moment experiences with openness, curiosity and a willingness to be with what is. Scott infuses mindfulness into both his and his clients' lives.

When not spending time with his kids and meeting with clients, Scott also enjoys reading, watching movies, writing limericks and public speaking. He stays active by biking, swimming and hiking. He loves to travel, especially to national parks - Glacier, Crater Lake and Grand Teton are his favorites. In the past year, he’s visited Zion National Park in Utah and attended a silent meditation retreat at Spirit Rock north of San Francisco.
