I have always loved organizing. The organizing process has always come naturally to me and is very therapeutic. Within minutes of seeing a cluttered space I get a picture in my head of the transformation. The beginning of a client project is one of my favorite parts because I can instantly see all the potential that lies ahead.
After working with clients for over ten years I realized I have been there during many significant life events—marriages, births, divorces, deaths, illnesses, new jobs, retirements… The one common thread is that we all get overwhelmed at times in our lives and need support. It is so rewarding for me to be there for a client through a challenging time and give them that little push for a fresh start or a much needed change or sense of relief.
Although my title is a Professional Organizer, I realize that my job is more than just to sort and re-establish order in your space; It is a very personal and thoughtful process that I take great honor in being able to experience with you.
My methods are slightly different than that of other professional organizers. I believe that if you do all the hard work of cleaning out and decluttering a space then you should have some added incentive to maintain the newly organized space. That is why I believe it is so important to finish the project 100%.
A room can be transformed with even small changes such as rearranging the furniture, new paint, a rug, better lighting, a favorite piece of art or family photo, a limited color palette… The list goes on. Sometimes decorative items that were cluttering one room may work great in another.
Once the process is complete, your newly organized space will evoke a positive emotion such as joy, excitement, inspiration, relief, a sense of calm or nostalgia.
