I was born and raised on the island of Cyprus where Greek culture and Orthodox religion are woven together to form a tradition of elaborate ceremonies. I combine my diverse life experience and my unique perspective as a clinician to understand both my clients and the time-honored event. As an ordained minister of the Universal Life Church, I am legally authorized to perform marriages.

At our initial meeting, we get to know one another through the use of a sand tray. We each choose objects that reflect who we are and place them in a tray full of sand. Together we create a symbolic world that reflects the upcoming rite we will be designing. As I prepare the ceremony, I keep in mind the sand tray we created, the uniqueness of who you are, and the message you want to evoke in this celebration. In follow-up meetings, we work together to revise, refine and practice your ceremony.

To schedule your first appointment try to call at least a month in advance of the actual ceremony date. This period of time allows us to get to know each other, understand your needs, and discover the meaning and direction you want your ceremony to take.
