It’s artistic. I also taught art in college for many years. I bring both skills to my organizing business. Being highly creative, I’m a spacial thinker, I see outside the box and am fearless about helping you visualize solutions and the process of transformation. As a teacher, I’m adept at identifying your distinct needs and focus on creating solutions that you understand and am inspired by so you’re empowered and [...]
I can read a space and instinctually visualize how things fall into place. It is my superpower!
We have an introductory phone chat that gives us the chance to learn more about each other. This first consultation lasts about 15-30 minutes and it’s complimentary.

It’s like your own manual. [...]
It’s for ethical and practical reasons. I’m looking, touching and moving your personal things that contain your memories. It’s delicate and personal work.

I require 36 hours notice for the cancellation of an onsite session. Last minute cancellations will be billed as a three hour session.
