Ritual and community are important in our lives, and as a Humanist Celebrant, certified through the American Humanist Association, I am happy to help facilitate all kinds of Rites of Passage and Transition, including weddings and funerals. I will work with you to develop a services that fits you and your worldview, to celebrate the unique person you are. Some of the most common rites are:
- Weddings and Commitment Rites
- Baby Namings
- Coming of Age Celebrations
- Blessing of a New Home
- Farewell Rites, including Funerals and Memorial Services
I have collected a vast selection of readings and rites, of different tones and styles, so that you can choose exactly the sort of ceremony and tone that suit you and the occasion.
In order to have time to get to know you and plan a special event (as well as to accommodate legal requirements, if any) it is best if you get in touch with me several months before your chosen date. (For funerals and memorial services, this is obviously not always possible, though it may apply for someone with an extended terminal illness.) Initial meetings can be done in person, with interested parties travelling to meet me, or by Skype. For the actual ceremony, I can travel fairly easily to most locations in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts. Special arrangements would have to be made for ceremonies in other states.

I look forward to celebrating with you!
