As much as we all want to focus on the significance of the occasion, whether a time of joy or one of grief, sometimes planning major life events can be stressful. With my background as a clinical social worker and an interfaith minister, I help individuals, couples and families resolve issues that may arise during the ceremony creation process and provide short-term counseling at any point before or after the event.

This counseling can include help in coping with the loss of a loved one, weaving two families into one in the case of second marriages, and bridging a couple’s differences in life views and child rearing.


Short-term counseling provided outside of the meetings included with a ceremony or memorial service
is done via hourly sessions on a sliding scale of $100-$200 per hour. To learn more, please contact me.
