About Us

Our Approach

We understand the stress that comes with financial planning for your future. You need a strategy that you can depend on to ensure you have the financial stability to live your life to its fullest. We put your needs first by performing a holistic review of all your future goals and expectations. We look at your current financial situation and retirement goals to tailor a plan that is diversified and within the risk tolerances of the client.  We provide a personal touch with sophisticated knowledge of financial markets.


We treat you as a person, not a number. We listen to your past experiences and act as your ally to improve the quality of your financial life. We establish a solid plan for all potential scenarios that could unfold in your personal life. No matter what decisions you make, we have a strategy that is right for you.

Our Dedication

We are committed to your plan for the long-term. We check in with you throughout the year to make sure you are on track and make any necessary adjustments based on life changes. We give our clients what their current advisors haven’t… an exit strategy. We start with the end in mind and lay out a strategy to get you there. We provide the light at the end of the tunnel.

We know every financial situation is unique.

We consider everything from your child’s college education savings, to buying that dream vacation home. Even early retirement! We specialize in helping business owners, women, and professionals design, pack, and deploy their own golden parachute for retirement.

Every client interaction is met with the same guiding principles: a relationship built on trust, easy accessibility, a client-first mentality, and clear communication.

Danielle Lucht, RICP®, CDFA®

Financial Advisor

My Experience

With over 16 years in corporate financial planning, I founded Everwell Financial to provide a different approach to helping clients improve their financial lives. With a passion for helping people design their future and a longtime advocate of comprehensive planning, I will connect with you personally to ensure you have the right plan in place to achieve your goals. When I was a teenager, my father suffered back-to-back strokes that left him bedridden and unable to communicate for over seven years. The shock waves were felt in every corner of my family’s life. I am dedicated to helping our clients avoid the financial heartache that results from such unforeseen tragedies.

I am proud to say that I am a native of the Metro DC area. My educational background took me from Maryland, then Virginia. I earned my B.A. from The Catholic University of America. I also hold a M.A. in Journalism from New York University. In addition to my RICP (Retirement Income Certified Professional) designation from the American College, I also hold FINRA Series 6, 7, 63 & 66 securities registrations.

Top of the Table Member of MDRTI am honored to be a Top of the Table Member of Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT). Top of the Table is an internationally recognized mark of excellence reserved for the most successful in the financial services industry. I am proud to be among the top professionals in the intensely competitive global life insurance and financial services industries.

In addition to my financial credentials, I am also a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® certificant. As a CDFA® professional, I am skilled at analyzing pensions, retirement plans, and the short-term and long-term effects of dividing property. I can recognize the tax consequences of different settlement proposals and provide clients with valuable data analysis that shows the financial impact of any given settlement. I am able to assist clients and their attorneys in understanding how their decisions today will impact their financial future.

Why I Founded Everwell Financial?

It is personally rewarding to make a connection with people and see them reach the goals we discuss together. The opportunity to provide a positive influence on the people I meet is unparalleled.

Only 15% of all financial advisors are women. Founding Everwell Financial provides the opportunity to recruit and build a practice of female advisors.

It’s important for me to empower women with the knowledge to make important financial decisions.

How We Work


We will organize an introductory meeting to get to know each other in a comfortable setting.  Together, we will define your personal and financial goals over a short and long-term period and discuss your feelings regarding investment risk, tax sensitivities, and income needs.


We gain a better understanding of your current financial landscape by reviewing your key financial information. Depending on your goals and alternate life scenarios, we’ll analyze your assets and establish a multi-layered view to inform the best strategy for you.

Planning & Strategy

Together we review the financial strategy and recommendations based on our past conversations. We’ll explain the rationale so you can make informed decisions. We’ll make any adjustments and implement the plan upon approval.

Long-Term Guidance

We stay connected as you work toward your goals. As your advisor, I will monitor your progress and check in regularly to review and adjust your plan based on any events or changes that have occurred in your life.
