END OF LIFE: FUNERALS / MEMORIALS
As a certified LIfe Cycle Celebrant, and ordained Non-Denominational Minister, I fully respect that there is no simple formula to acknowledge, and come to terms with the passing of a life.
Families today often consist of relatives from different backgrounds, mixed heritages, and varying religious customs and beliefs. Many of us may no longer have a personal relationship with a Rabbi, Pastor or Priest who knows how to best communicate the family's wishes, and rememebr the life of your loved one.
I am available to meet with you, and the significant others in your home. Together we will craft a customized memorial service that truly pays tribute, and reflects your values.
I believe that I have been preparing to do this work all of my life. I come to you with many years of experience as a Marriage and Family Counselor. Time spent listening to people in their darkest hours has given me the compassion and skill to work with you and your family to create the most dignified, meaningful service to honor the passing of your loved one -- and to celebrate that life.
As a licensed clinician, I am also able to offer you and your family bereavement counseling as an additional service, upon request.
