Rites of Passage that Touch the Heart!

There is no single formula -- no best way -- to honor the Big Events that occur in the course of our lives.  So many of us today come from a mix of cultures and heritages.  Often, we come together with varying degrees of religious, spiritual or secular beliefs.  Many of us may no longer enjoy a personal relationship with a Pastor, Priest or Rabbi.
I am a certified Life-Cycle Celebrant and ordained Non-Denominational Minister --specifically trained in designing and delivering ceremonies that speak to the way we live today.

Whether it is the joyous coming together in life-long partnership,the heralding of a new being into your world, the movement from one stage of your life to the next, or the somber honoring of a loved one's passing, let me meet with you.  Together we can craft a personalized ceremony that will truly pay tribute; reflecting your values, customs and beliefs.

"The ceremony was wonderful!  We were more than satisfied with Risa's services. It was a pleasure meeting her, and we were delighted to have her perform the ceremony and share the beautiful evening with us. We would definitely refer people to her!"

"I have to say, again and again, Risa conducted a wonderful ceremony!  Seeing someone else's, makes me realize how lucky we were to have her!  Perhaps for our 5 year anniversary we will have another big party.  Maybe we can convince her to come back and Renew Our Vows!"
