Terri is an ordained Interfaith minister who has performed hundreds of weddings, baby welcomings, house blessings, memorials and other rites of passage since 1995. Her spiritual references draw from a wide range of inspirations, including Buddhism, Shamanism and ancient Christian mysticism, but she is equally experienced in secular humanism and ceremonies without a spiritual component.
Terri will help you create a meaningful, original ceremony that reflects your personal spiritual and social perspective, and offers a wealth of creative ideas that incorporate readings, rituals and practices from a variety of cultures, traditions and world views.

Tom and Kim Fuchs
For couples seeking an officiant... Terri is amazing! THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU! Having her as our officiant was the icing on the cake!
Miguel and Susan DeCoste
"We had a perfect ceremony! We wanted to write our own vows but didn't know how to start. With Terri's gentle suggestions, we found the right words. Terri's insight and humor really helped things go smoothly."
Sven and Janet Nilson
"We were sensitive to the differences in our beliefs. Terri used her knowledge of sacred and secular texts to suggest vows and readings. She has an extremely pleasant and generous manner, and we knew when we met her that she was the right person."
Rafael and Carolyn Pizzaro
“One of us was raised Baptist and the otherJewish, but neither of us embraces the religion we were raised with. We wanted a completely non-religious ceremony, and Terri knew exactly how to bridge the gap. She worked closely with us to create a ceremony that honored our secular viewpoints without offending anyone.”
Eric and Lynn Dean
Terri, thank you so much for making our event so special by performing such a beautiful ceremony! I have never seen so many people cry for joy. You were terrific with all of us, and definitely have our vote of confidence!
