To the basics . . . I am returning to where I started thirty-three years ago, providing my clients with Organizing & Coaching services.
People are overwhelmed with their clutter, but most American families live within chaotic family and work schedules, which keeps them in the clutter because they’re telling themselves “I don’t have time” so clutter has the time to accumulate. We can help break that cycle.
We can help you find the time, when you’re surrounded by clutter, your mindset is in total chaos – that’s where we can first help. We can partner to find a starting point along with an action plan while moving you forward to your goal.
We provide a safe place for you to start letting go of your clutter.
Let’s be truthful, clutter makes us feel crappy. That’s why, every year, after the big ball drops, oodles – oodles and oodles of us vow “this year we will get organized,” Fist pumps in the air, the family high-fiving each other. But, as days, weeks, and months go by and we resume our daily routines, the motivation to declutter tends to diminish. Perhaps your inner ‘neat freak’ merely needs the incentive to jump-start the organizing process.
Do you have too much clutter lying around? Do you have tripping hazards? such as tripping over toys in the middle of the night. Nevertheless, clutter causes many internal problems which – although less obvious than the Lego maze spread across your family room floor – are quite impactful on your life.
Putting in the effort of getting organized, especially if this organization extends to multiple areas of your life, can help reduce stress and anxiety levels long term by requiring less last-minute scrambling in a variety of directions in everyday situations. It can also feel empowering, so you can experience new situations as “exciting” rather than “stressful.”
HEALTH BENEFITS OF BEING ORGANIZED:
*Boost your energy and productivity
*Reduce stress & anxiety
*Improve your financial health
Clutter happens to all of us at one time or another and regaining control over the chaos can be challenging. Fortunately, science has shown getting organized has so many health benefits. Making small changes and successive improvements in one area can lead to positive effects in other areas. For example, less stress means a better night’s sleep. This just might be the motivation you need to kick your organizing goals into high gear.
Check out the three Organize & Coach Packages that are available now.
I have focused my organize + coachwork on busy professionals that have struggled with chronic disorganization throughout their whole life. My clients and I work together to understand their challenges and to identify, and strategize along with learning new skills and habits.
Chronic Disorganization Fees
$75 / hour 60 – 90 – 180 minutes sessions
Walk & Talk Strategy
A 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hour Walk & Talk Strategy Session will provide clarity and a written step-by-step strategy for getting organized. We begin with an interview and an examination of the spaces of concern, then continue with an evaluation of various organizing options and product recommendations (if needed). I can provide a sketch of the future layout as part of this package and would also be pleased to advise you on how to work with an assistant or temporary help in order to achieve your organizing goals.

In 1995, I found myself recleaning the same clutter in clients’ homes. I decided to ask a few clients that I was close to if I could apply my C – O – R + method in their homes.
I had “absolutely” from everyone. I sat with them explaining that while cleaning their homes, I had noticed that I can no longer fit one more bottle of cleaning products under the kitchen sink or fit one more pair of shoes into the hallway closet.
I explained my C – O- R + method: the acronyms stand for CLEAN – ORGANIZE – REDESIGN + so much more. I told them that I was noticing clutter in spaces where I kept recleaning and tidying up each week. I explained together we could come up with systems that can make the home functional, and efficient with purposeful spaces. I discussed how from then on when I clean their homes, I would organize drawers, cabinets, and closets along my path of cleaning.
When I finished my first home with my new method – it was celebrated by the family giving notes and cards when I arrived at their home the following week.
The notes mentioned items like Time Saving, Saving money at the grocery store because of no more overbuying, and finding paperwork for school or work easier, getting out of the door on time in the mornings.
After leaving that home with cards and notes in hand, I decided to make an intentional decision for my business that the Clean – Organize – Redesign method will become the foundation of my cleaning company.
I found a niche in the then-saturated cleaning business. It has served clients well over the last 27 years, In 1999 I brought the method into commercial cleaning, which lead to helping out small doctors’, and lawyers’ offices get organized and be more efficient businesses.
This new business foundation solved a problem for my clients, it fit the 3 priorities I found to make the final decision to interweave this method into my business.
I would leave my clients homework when they were having a hard time making those decisions, here is the homework I would leave them:
1-minute blueprint for making difficult decisions
What is the problem that needs to be solved? (declutter clients’ homes)
Identify your top priorities for having the problem solved (keep it to 3) (save client time, save labor, extra$)
List them in the order of importance (save client time, save labor, extra$)
Write the 3 priorities in their order, and post them where they’re visible
The next time they had to make a difficult decision, they could evaluate their options through what they learned is most important to them.
Below is a 10/10 sheet, ten spaces, ten minutes – these are spaces where you’re going to see quick visuals of organizing, it helps to keep you motivated for your next challenge.
What would it say? Help me, please with my struggles.
Well, you ended up at the right place for solutions.
