Life & Grief Coaching
Coaching is an investment you make in your future so that you can close the gap between where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow; I am honored to be chosen to walk with you along that journey. My fees are based on $100 per hour. Sessions are held face to face, by phone and by Skype if distance is an issue.
Certified Life-Cycle® Celebrant Ceremonies are very affordable! As your Celebrant, I invest many hours of time, effort, energy, and heart into creating the ceremony you desire. For instance, a Celebrant Wedding incorporates several face to face meetings, phone conversations and emails, and written drafts of the ceremony that lead up to a final draft that is approved by the couple. Unlike ministers who are already busy with church duties and can hardly afford to take the time to meet once or twice, I am free to concentrate on you and your partner’s wishes, ideas, and desired service. I can take the necessary time to get it just right for your special day.
Fees reflect time spent on consultation, writing, research, preparation of ritual elements. My fees typically range from $200 to $500 per event. Travel may be separately invoiced if the event is outside of the greater Indianapolis area.
All fees are defined during our initial consultation prior to signing an agreement.
Workshops & Speaking Engagements
I have been engaged in public speaking since my early career as an alcohol and drug abuse counselor right up to the present time. I have spoken to audiences as small as 2-4 people on a team up to 2,000 new employees on their first day of orientation. Topics reflect my experience and expertise in various human endeavors, and the interests of my clients who may have a particular topic in mind.
Of late, I have been speaking on these topics:
- Grief and Building Emotional Resilience
- Successfully Managing Life Transitions
- Begin with the End in Mind: Mindful Caregiving
- Aging Gracefully
- Conscious Aging (an Institute of Noetic Sciences program for which I am certified)
- Resilience Art: How Music, Ritual, and Art Can Help You Heal A Grieving Heart
My fees are influenced by the circumstances of each request. A reasonable fee for a one hour presentation ranges from $75- $100, while a keynote address is typically $500. Travel fees are negotiable; most of the time I absorb those costs rather than add them to the speaking fee but circumstances can alter arrangements; ie if there is a plane trip involved in reaching the destination of the event. It all begins with a phone call or an email from you when you are ready to make contact.
