I am a non-denominational officiant, which means I am not affiliated with
any particular religion or belief. This gives me the flexibility to perform a variety of different ceremonies regardless of
whether or not you are spiritual or religious. I perform unique, custom ceremonies for couples from coast to coast, and I
specialize in the San Diego County and Southern California areas.

Renewal of Vows
Every so often after you are married, you could have a Renewal of Vows or
Reaffirmation Ceremony. This may be done with your officiant if you would like. One couple wrote: "There is something
profoundly meaningful about turning to the person with whom you have shared so many experiences and re-affirming the love and
gratitude." Another wrote: "No gift could have been worth more to us than taking the time to rededicate our
commitment and love." The value and practical effect of renewing your vows cannot be overstated.
This service is simply delightful and wonderful. I will meet with
the parent or parents for the preparation of the baby blessing ceremony. I will present many options and creative ideas for
your baby's blessing. This service can be done privately or with immediate family and friends. Godparents can be chosen and
included. Siblings can be involved and readings can be read.
A House Blessing is a wonderful way to begin in a new home or to begin
anew in an existing home. It is done with the officiant and those who will be living in the house. Friends and family may
also be invited. Refreshments or a meal can be served afterwards as part of the occasion. The House Blessing focuses
on and attracts the qualities you want in your home environment (e.g., loving, abundance, prosperity, health, balance, healing,
laughter, etc.). A House Blessing results in the house being prepared and blessed for your dear loved ones, your family.
& Post Wedding Counseling
Marriage is perhaps the most complex of human relationships. The Life
Innovations Prepare and Enrich program was developed to help counselors and clergy work more effectively with premarital and
married couples. It is designed to focus objectively on critical relationship issues and help increase each partners awareness of
both strength and potential growth
areas. Which in turn stimulates discussion concerning issues vital to the relationship while
teaching valuable communication and conflict resolution skills. See their
website for more info.
about my approach to marriage education is ever about 'right or wrong'. I present simple tools that can be learned and used
as needed (communication and conflict resolution tools from the National Institute of Relationship Enhancement, NIRE). I
recognize, that these days, to do nothing and expect something from your marriage is quite unlikely. It won't grow without
quality participation (unless you are in the 1% group of couples that expect to leave (or left) the altar as completely finished
works of marriage art). With a quality counselor, your participation will result in a quantum leap for you both in how you
deal with your issues and live your life happily.
