As an interfaith minister, it is my honor to serve individuals, couples, and families of all faiths, multiple faiths and of no faith — as well as a growing number of people who who describe themselves as “spiritual but not religious” — during times of celebration, sorrow, transition and reflection.
I love supporting couples during their engagement and helping them to not only create an enjoyable, low-stress and memorable wedding day – but also to make time and space to nurture and grow their relationship in anticipation of all the days to come after their wedding day.
After several years of teaching yoga and leading workshops and retreats, at the suggestion of a friend, I began officiating weddings in 2010 — and it quickly became my deep joy and passion.
I studied interfaith ministry at and was ordained by One Spirit Learning Alliance in New York City in 2016, and soon after expanded my ceremony offerings to include Baptisms, Baby Blessings, Vow-Renewals, Funerals and Memorials.

When I am not officiating ceremonies, or enjoying time with my two children (ages 14 and 12), I am blessed to work as a Peer Recovery Specialist, supporting individuals in recovery from Mental Illness and / or Substance Use Disorders.
(In September 2018, I celebrated 5 years in recovery!)
I truly love my work as a minister and I appreciate you taking the time to visit my online home. If you have any questions or would like to inquire about working together, please contact me HERE.
I look forward to connecting with you.

Kind Words from Clients & Colleagues
Erin was the most wonderful person to have with us leading up to and on our wedding day! She worked with us to make sure our ceremony was absolutely perfect. She guided us every step of the way, but still allowed it to be completely our own! We changed our mind a million times and she rolled with it right to the last second. I was so relieved to have her be the one organizing our ceremony, I can't imagine it being any better!
Erin is warm, wise, compassionate and a clearly gifted writer and celebrant. I highly recommend her services!
Rev. Hannah Grace, Grace Ceremonies
Erin was an enormous help with my sister’s memorial service. My sister was not tremendously religious however still had faith. Erin’s interfaith background was a tremendous help for our situation. She brought wonderful ideas and conducted a ceremony that was calm and loving for everyone involved. Thank you Erin.
From our first phone call to the day she dropped off our signed marriage certificate at Town Hall, Erin was spectacular. She made every effort to get to know us and helped us create a ceremony that was very personal. There were happy tears and laughter during the ceremony, and Erin made a special day even more so with her professionalism and calm, loving demeanor. Peace of mind and heart is priceless, and we cannot thank Erin enough for giving us that on our wedding day!
