I’m dealing directly with your personal things which means it’s more delicate work than being an assistant. Often there’s sentimental value attached to what we sort through which can evoke feelings of vulnerability as I help you make choices about what to keep, purge or give away. I’m very tuned in to the emotional aspect of people dealing with their stuff. “Stuff” has a double meaning because it’s your physical stuff but also your emotional stuff because it contains your private memories.
A large part of my professionalism and expertise encompasses an ability to recognize and respect the highly individualized process of letting go and adapting to change. Getting organized can, at times, be deep work requiring specialized guidance which is different than a hired hand.
