How do we get started?

The first step in booking your wedding is to contact me here, letting me know the specific date, time and location of your event. If I'm available, we’ll set a time for a free consultation, either at my office or via phone, Skype or FaceTime. During that meeting, we'll get to know each other and go over [...]

What are you like as a wedding celebrant?

Given my ministry background and interfaith expertise, I am especially effective performing weddings where different religious backgrounds must be carefully respected in ways that are authentic to the couple. I’m also an intuitive crowd manager, armed with a strong voice and an easy sense of humor. In other words, along with all that beauty and meaning, I [...]

How long is your average ceremony?

Once it starts, my average wedding is 20-25 minutes long. If you include more special elements like readings, songs, and unity rituals, your ceremony will last a bit longer. Regardless, it should be long enough to be meaningful and memorable, but short enough that no one worries about making it to the cocktail hour.

How much do you charge?

If you’re happy with the ceremony we go over during your free consultation, my Classic Wedding is a great choice. You get to choose your own vows, music and other personal elements, and any additional planning is done via email. I won't attend the rehearsal, but will provide you and your wedding coordinator with a [...]

Do you require (or offer) premarital counseling?

I don't require pre-marital counseling, but I do think it's a great idea. I offer a very practical three-session pre-marital coaching course for $250, but I can also happily introduce you to a trusted psychologist with special expertise.

Why should I talk with you?

Simple as it sounds, feeling good about yourself and enjoying your life can be very difficult, especially when you don’t have the kind of support you need. Talking things through with a wise, caring counselor is one of best ways I know of to overcome problems, find new direction, and begin improving your life in [...]

What’s it like?

A formal therapeutic relationship isn’t quite the same as a natural friendship, but with me there are plenty of similarities. For one thing, I won’t just sit there asking, “How does that make you feel?” over and over again. On the contrary, we’ll talk together about your life, exchange ideas, and probably even share some [...]

Will we spend much time dredging up every bad thing that ever happened to me?

Probably not. Identifying and overcoming the pain of past experiences is sometimes an important part of the healing process, but I’m convinced that change mostly happens in the present, as we focus on the future. So then, as far as I’m concerned, what matters most is for us to gain an understanding of your immediate [...]
