Offering Baby Naming, Coming of Age, Small Weddings, and Memorial Ceremonies. I keep the ceremonies casual, respectful and fun where appropriate. My fees are reasonable and travel is only charged if over 20 miles each way. If downtown – Chicago parking fees. I would love to help you celebrate your life occasion. Respectful divorce ceremonies considered. Im here to help you.
My life’s work as a nurse taught me much about our need to celebrate the events in our lives and the lives of those closest to us, to mark important events and turning points with rites shared with others. I find joy in working with people seeking a secular path to those celebrations and rites.
I am a humanist celebrant, offering services to: • couples who want a non-religious officiant to help create a meaningful ceremony for their wedding, and • people at the end of their lives who wish to reveal and express their life, privately or in a public ceremony, and explore what a “good death” would be in practical, emotional and spiritual (humanist) dimensions. As a humanist, I am non-religious which allows the space for participants to find and express their own unique intention and meaning.
