With detailed military understanding and a focus on trauma, death/grieving, and celebration of life, Andrea strives to allow empathetic transition and guide compassionate healing. The countryside setting near Ft.Bragg, NC, provides copacetic respite and refuge among horses and animals, as well as a peaceful location for memorial services and life celebration. Military, families, veterans, and civilians are always welcome for horsemanship immersion, as well as authentic decompression and creativity experiences. We’re all in this together; please come join us. 🙂 (At present, Andrea is also completing her doctoral studies in Community Counseling & Care – Trauma.)
One reason I became a humanist chaplain is because I love helping people make the most of life’s biggest moments. I’m a warm, friendly leader with loads of experience both on-stage and behind the scenes, so working with couples to pull off wonderful weddings is a joyful privilege for me. If you want a better sense of my personality, check out an episode of my podcast, Humanize Me.
I can accommodate requests to perform secular weddings, funerals/memorials and Celebrations of Life, naming and coming of age ceremonies and invocations, as well as combined belief services (work with other clergy). Help with finding urns, remembrances, memorial jewelry. Help with writing eulogies, vows, finding readings, music, activities, and honors, and organizing your thoughts. Incorporate tradition, new ideas, culture, personality, symbols, pastimes and more into ceremonies. Specializing in Humanist and secular services, ceremonies and memorials.
