FAQ

Are your services right for me?

If you’re reluctant to part with anything and just want storage solutions for your existing stuff, I’m probably not the organizer for you!

My services are a good fit if:

– You’re successful in your life and career but feel stuck when it comes to organizing your home.
– You want your home to be a source of joy, not a source of stress, anxiety and shame.
– You want your space to be clutter-free, organized and stylish but don’t know where to start.
– You want a collaborative hands-on process where you learn all of the tools and habits that will ensure you stay organized and clutter-free for years to come.
– You’re ready and committed to dramatically reducing physical clutter.

What should I expect during a half-day intensive session?

Sessions are hands-on and require energy, commitment, and focus for big results and a major transformation.

Step 1: We’ll edit your entire space deciding which items you truly use and love.
Step 2: I’ll help you organize the keepers and set up simple, intuitive systems so everything has a clear home.
Step 3: I’ll help style the space using what you have and set you up with a customized online order to finish the makeover.

The amount of time a project takes depends on the size of your space, the volume of clutter, and most of all how quickly you can make decisions. For most projects, four hours of focused work is enough to complete the transformation. Larger projects will take multiple sessions.

What if I need organizing products or storage solutions?

I never have you buy anything until we have edited your space. Once we have edited and organized, I will create a custom shopping list for you. You’ll have the option to order the products online or I can purchase and deliver the items to your home for an additional fee.

What do I do with all the stuff I no longer want?

At the end of your session, I can help you load up your car with any donations and provide you with a list of local charities. Alternately, I can coordinate a free donation pick up with one of my charitable partners and provide you with a tax receipt for your records.

Should I tidy up before you get here?

Resist the urge to clean up before I arrive! It is helpful for me to see your home in its natural state so I can understand what’s not working and solve your specific challenges.

Do you ever edit my belongings without me?

No.  This is a deeply personal process and we will need to work closely together to clarify your values and edit and organize your space in a way that will be both intuitive for you and easy for you to maintain. Once we have edited and organized your space I can work solo to source, shop and style your space to complete the transformation.

How are you different from other professional organizers?

COACHING – I am a certified life coach and use my training to help my clients to clarify their interests, values, and priorities so that we can create a home that clearly reflects their personality and style. I also help my clients shift their habits, perspectives, and routines to effect dramatic results and permanent change.

AN EYE FOR EDITING – Many professional organizers are focused solely on organizing and storing your stuff. I believe that unless you start by assessing and editing your belongings, you are simply moving your clutter into boxes instead of creating permanent change in your life and home.

STYLE + DESIGN – In addition to my organizing expertise, I offer a broad range of design services. I can help you not only style your space, but select furniture, lighting, and décor to fully transform the rooms in your home. In addition, I always extend my trade discounts and preferred vendor information to my clients.

Why have you chosen this career?

Organizing and de-cluttering were skills that always came quite naturally to me. After helping friends and family for years, I decided to expand my services to the public so I could help more people.

I believe one’s home environment affects all aspects of their everyday life. Clutter holds people back in all aspects of their lives – from finding a new job to finding love and interpersonal connection.  It has been hugely gratifying to witness the personal transformations that take place in my clients’ lives after we work together, and I consider it an honor and a privilege to do this work.

How far in advance do you book?

I only book one client per day and I limit how many projects I take on so I can give my clients my full energy and attention. My schedule often books up 1-2 months in advance and it is not uncommon for me to have a waitlist. If you want to get started, make sure to get in touch soon to secure a spot on my calendar!
