As a nondenominational chaplain, I consider it a privilege to create ceremonies, celebrations and rituals that acknowledge important events in the history of a life, a family or a relationship. A life passage is anything that feels important, including:
- Memorial services / Celebrations of life
- Weddings / Commitment ceremonies / Renewals of vows
- Baby blessings
- Significant birthdays
- House warming
- ... and more
I have become highly skilled at asking the questions that evoke the deeper meanings in life events and help tease out what’s important to you. Then I create a ritual that has personal significance for you and your family or community.
With my background as a psychotherapist and life coach, I understands how different people respond to life changes and how those events affect family dynamics and interactions. And as a professional storyteller, I am fascinated with the stories that come from both individual and family perspectives, and have explored the many ways we navigate life’s journey and how we celebrate the milestones.
For those who find comfort in the established practices of their religious tradition, it sometimes feels right to complement those familiar rituals with a more personal ceremony in a different context.
I am also available to support individuals and families dealing with life-altering illness or grieving the loss of a loved one.
