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 by phone, or by Zoom during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Certified Life-Cycle® Celebrant Ceremonies are beautifully tailored to your needs, and quite affordable! As your Celebrant, I invest about 8-10 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. This assures you that there are no surprises; your ceremony will be the one you approved.
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. The same is true for Celebrations of Life. Working with a celebrant provides you with a personalized, meaningful ceremony that will be remembered fondly for years to come.
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. Because of the COVID 19 pandemic, in-person services are held following the CDC guidelines, and may be presented over ZOOM to accommodate small family gatherings, and is especially helpful for those who cannot travel to the location.
Workshops & Speaking Engagements
I have been engaged in public speaking from my early days 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:
- Building Emotional Resilience
- Successfully Managing Life Transitions during a Pandemic
- Your Life Can Be A Light
- 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- $150, while a keynote address is typically $500- $1,000. Travel fees are negotiable; 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 talk about your plans.
