I am pleased to offer a wide variety of ministerial services, including weddings, baby blessings, personalized rituals, premarital counseling, as well as spiritual counseling.
Blessing and naming ceremonies offer the community of friends and family an opportunity to honor the gift this new life brings into our world.
This celebration ceremony can be customized to your liking, and is a wonderful way for family and friends to affirm their desire to love, support and care for this new being on his or her journey of life.
Personalized rituals include house blessings, releasing rituals to let go of old feelings, experiences or relationships, reclaiming rituals, name-changing rituals, stage-of-life rituals and so much more. When it comes to creating a personalized, custom ritual, the possibilities are virtually limitless.
Do you want to open yourself to love? I can create a ritual for you to invite love in. Children leaving for college? I can create a ritual to honor this transition in your life.
Tell me what you're wanting to honor, release, or embrace, and I will be delighted to work to create something truly meaningful for you.
Premarital & Spiritual Counseling
I am delighted to offer spiritual counseling and premarital counseling.
What is spiritual counseling?
Spiritual counseling is guiding another person to be in touch with their own spirituality, and using this spiritual perspective to deal with life issues in a constructive way. Spirituality is believing in a source greater than oneself, called by whatever name you feel comfortable with: God/Higher Power, Great Spirit, Inner Wisdom, etc. It allows us to meet the challenges of life by bringing a new consciousness and awareness of a larger picture. Spiritual counseling may incorporate prayer, ritual, meditation, and deep listening, depending on your needs and comfort.
What is premarital counseling?
As you're planning your wedding, are you also preparing for your marriage? Whether you're together a short time or for many years, marriage can bring a difference in how we relate to each other. Premarital counseling gives you an opportunity to explore the dynamics of your relationship and
set yourselves up for a happy and satisfying future together. In an enviornment of trust, care and respect we will explore and build on skills for effective communication, conflict resolution, career and financial goals, intimacy, children, blending families, religion, household duties, family involvement and social life. You and your partner will see where your expectations are aligned and where you might explore feelings more deeply to reach rich and fulfiling solutions to many of life's challenges. This is a beautiful and inspiring way to begin your marriage.
