Welcome to Reserved Ground!

The vision behind Reserved Ground is to offer a container, a sacred space in time that is set apart or reserved to help you navigate and honor transitions or loss.

As a chaplain, I am often called upon to assist with planning and performing weddings and funerals, where I have witnessed the power of creating sacred space to tell our stories of love and loss.


I often felt in my own life a need for more spaces like these, sacred spaces that honor the many stories of love and loss I carry but are harder to name.... such as heartbreak, identity & existential crisis, becoming a mother, the end of my marriage, and chronic debilitating health issues.


My hope is to be able to provide for others what I wish I had during these transitions - a guide, someone to help me name and process the complexity of these experiences, and honor my experiences through personalized, meaningful ritual.

What are transitions?

Transitions exist in the in-between space that is created by change. In life, a transition may occur anytime we experience a significant or important shift in our relationships, our routines or our identity.

Life is full of transitions, some subtle, others not so subtle, some we have control over, some we don't have control over, and some we may not even be fully aware of at the time we are going through them.

Why is support helpful when navigating transition?


Life transitions can often leave us feeling a complex set of emotions including joy and grief, peace and fear, anger and hope.

The nuance of these emotions make them hard to name and process, especially if they come with feelings of guilt or shame.

When we experience a life transition, we may find that we begin to question our sense of meaning, our sense of purpose, or our sense of belonging and connection to people, to the world around us or to the divine.

The feelings and questions that can surface during a change or life transition may leave us feeling stuck and alone.

I felt stuck and alone many times trying to name or honor some of the important changes and transitions in my own life, including everything from heartbreak, to identity and existential crisis, to becoming a mother, to going through a divorce, to experiencing chronic debilitating health issues.


Reserved Ground was born out of a desire to provide for all of you what I wish I had during those transitions. I needed help from someone who could create the structure that was needed for me to feel safe enough to name and share my experience, while at the same time, be able to help me honor my experience in a tangible way that felt personal and meaningful.


Reserved Ground offers a variety of safe spaces to choose from to help you navigate life transitions and honor your experience, whether it be in the form of co-creating a ritual with you, processing your experience in a one on one session, or connecting you with community through a support group.
