ARE YOU READY TO CREATE SPACE FOR FLOW IN YOUR LIFE?
My approach to home organization works best for particular kinds of people.
Do any of these situations sound familiar?
You want to simplify your life by decluttering your space, but you don’t know where to start. On top of that, you feel guilty about bringing anything new into your space because you feel like you should be getting rid of stuff.
You’ve been making an effort to declutter and have achieved some success, but now you feel stuck. You’re struggling with piles of stuff that move around your space without a final destination, and you're unsure of where to go from here.
You spend too much time cleaning and reorganizing. Your efforts always seem to break down sooner or later, leaving you back where you started. You long for stability and it feels out of reach.
You want to take control of your space, and emotions keep getting in the way. They could be your own emotions or others. You know you need to make a change, and you're not sure how to navigate yourself through this tricky emotional territory.
Your space might seem neat enough, yet you are struggling with problem areas. Maybe certain surfaces keep piling up with endless stuff; or you know you could make better use of your available space. You can't seem to figure out how to get to the bottom of it, and you're overwhelmed.
You decorated your space beautifully, but all of that pesky clutter is killing the vibe. Rather feel uplifted in the environment you created, you can’t help but fixate on the mess.
You have trouble locating crucial items like your keys, wallet, phone, or documents. Too often, you find yourself late to appointments or missing important deadlines, and you need to find a way to make a change.
You're confused and put off by supposed "rules" for decluttering and home organization. You want a space that is going to feel good for you to live in, plain and simple. You don't want to twist yourself into a pretzel to conform to arbitrary rules and images of what organization is "supposed to" be.
My approach works for...
women who live alone or with a partner
working or stay-at-home mothers
professionals who work from home
spaces of any size
Plus, my most successful clients share these values:
You cherish your home life. Your home is a place where you can relax, be yourself, and nourish yourself and others. When your space doesn’t feel like home, it has an impact on your wellbeing.
You’re a lifelong learner. You enjoy acquiring knowledge and cultivating a new skill, especially if it has the power to improve or enhance your life.
You want lasting results. While you don’t want to spend more time and energy than necessary, you're not interested in band-aid solutions that will lead you back where you started.
You want to experience a new paradigm for your space and stuff. You recognize that our society’s consumption habits are unsustainable and want to be part of a change our planet desperately needs.
INTRODUCING: THE 1:1 INTENSIVE
SIX WEEKS OF HIGH LEVEL COACHING FOR WOMEN WHO WANT TO TRANSFORM THEIR LIVING SPACE
In the 1:1 Intensive, I’ll help you bring your vision for your space into reality with three simple principles.
So many people struggle for years to get organized without lasting success.
Much as women are made to feel like they “should” know how to do this themselves, most simply haven’t yet learned the skills and strategies that are needed to achieve sustainable results.
Sometimes, clients confess their embarrassment that they’ve “had to” hire me.
In reality, my clients are way ahead of the game because they recognize that they don’t have these skills and strategies and have accepted that there’s a steep learning curve to “figuring it out” for themselves.
They also realize they’d benefit from a professional opinion because they’re having a hard time getting clear about what’s going wrong in the space that they’re in all the time.
The bottom line? My clients have courage and self awareness. And they value their time and energy enough to call in support so they can put these struggles behind them once and for all.
My unique curriculum is designed to give you sustainable, low maintenance results for your living space as efficiently as possible. And, the structure of the 1:1 intensive will provide you with the momentum needed for a full transformation.
Using proven organizing techniques, we’ll work together to unblock key areas of your living space. By unblocking these areas first, we’ll be able to create a household storage plan that will meet your needs and feel really good to use.
With this framework, you’ll start feeling tangible benefits from our first session, and before you know it, you’ll have achieved these results throughout your primary living space.
My goal is not to make your space pretty for a short period of time. My goal is to give you the tools you need to stay organized for a lifetime. At the center of this is habit change.
You’ve reached a point where you know you need to make a big change in your space. Things have piled up, and you are overwhelmed. During the 1:1 intensive, your space will transform in a big way as we "get you out from under" any overt dysfunction.
And, as we transform your space, we will also uncover any habits - mental, physical, emotional - that have been contributing to your situation. We will work to shift these habits in order to prevent backsliding into patterns that have created challenges in your space.
We know that clutter holds people back. Let’s be real. If it were easy to make these changes, you probably would have already done so.
When it comes to decluttering and getting organized, much of the work is physical. And yet, many of us cannot deny that there's an emotional factor that...complicates things.
The potential of doing this work is so deep - and yet when we work alone or with a well-meaning loved one, too often we stay on the surface of things - and achieve surface-level results.
Those necessary moments of honesty tend to escape us when we are being "watched" by someone who is involved in our lives. And yet, it's a real challenge to find the strength to act on them when we’re on our own and don't feel supported.
That’s why non-judgmental emotional support is imperative if you want to untangle yourself from things that are no longer in alignment with the life you want to build for yourself going forward.
When it comes to your space and your possessions, your truth comes first. My role is to be present with you as you uncover it. By asking the right questions, shedding light on your choices, and providing compassionate accountability, I will work with you to get you where you want to be.
COMBINE THESE PRINCIPLES AND YOUR SPACE WILL TRANSFORM.
You’ll start to experience the freedom and beauty of open space, and the ripple effects it has on the rest of your life. Once you make your space your ally, you can move through life with more ease and flow.
what is my space going to look like when we’re done?
It’s going to look however you want it to look! One of my favorite things about working with clients in their space is witnessing their personal style come to life.
Good organization isn’t necessarily something you can see. I have worked in some very beautiful spaces that might “look organized” to the naked eye - and those clients were struggling all the same.
Truthfully, the better question is: How is it going to feel?
One client of mine summed it up perfectly: “Putting things away feels magnetic.” This same client had very little faith in her ability to stick with an organizing system before we started our work together.
I WANT MY SPACE TO BE ORGANIZED, BUT I DON’T HAVE TIME TO BE INVOLVED. CAN YOU declutter and organize it FOR ME?
As they say: “Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime.”
While there are professional organizers who are willing to do the job for you, I am not one of them. In my experience, results yielded from this approach are superficial and temporary.
If we were talking about weight loss, for example, it would be the difference between a crash dieting to lose weight fast only to put it back on again - and a lifestyle change that leaves you healthy and stable for the long term. Depending on where you are in life, one approach might make more sense than the other.
I am different from others in my field in that I am also a life coach. As such, I have the tools to partner with you to achieve high quality, sustainable results.
Decluttering - the process of deciding what stays in your space and what goes - is incredibly personal. I cannot make those decisions for you. Instead, I will support you in your own decision making and help you build this muscle for yourself.
Likewise, there is no one-size-fits-all prescription to home organization. At the end of the day, it’s your space and you’re the one who needs to feel comfortable and at ease there. To this end, there is no substitute for your presence in our sessions, and your engagement in our work.
And yet, you don’t have all the time in the world. The 1:1 Intensive is designed to support you in achieving high quality, sustainable results as efficiently and effectively as possible, so you can go live your life. In my opinion, that’s the whole point of getting organized.
I WANT MY SPACE TO BE ORGANIZED, BUT I’M NOT WILLING TO PART WITH MY STUFF. CAN YOU GIVE ME SOME TIPS FOR FITTING IT ALL?
Decluttering, to at least some extent, is part of any organizing project.
I’m never going to force you to get rid of anything you don’t want to get rid of. And, yes, I do have tricks up my sleeve for making the most of your available space.
That being said, there are times where the volume of stuff simply exceeds the amount of storage space available. Generally, I find that a space functions best when your storage has some breathing room and isn’t crammed full.
I help my clients determine the extent to which decluttering is required to meet their goals and be real about options for moving forward.
I WANT TO WORK WITH YOU BUT i’m not sure the structure of the 1:1 intensive is right for me. WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO WORK WITH YOU OUTSIDE OF THE 1:1 INTENSIVE?
If this is the case, I encourage you to get in touch for a free consultation. During our consultation, we’ll discuss your needs and see if this offering would truly be a good fit.
I developed the 1:1 Intensive through the experience of working with scores of clients. For many, there are significant advantages to working with me through the 1:1 Intensive.
If not, there may still be opportunity for us to work together outside of the 1:1 Intensive. For in-person sessions outside of the 1:1 Intensive, my availability will be quite limited. I will also be announcing some alternative ways to work with me in the near future, so stay tuned for that!
I WANT TO GET ORGANIZED BUT I’M NOT SURE THAT I WILL HAVE THE TIME/MONEY/ENERGY.
To be completely honest with you, that’s actually all the more reason to work with a professional organizer.
Organizing without strategies and guidance will often lead you back where you started. The proven strategies I teach will break this cycle so you can get organized efficiently, stay organized for the long term and move on with your life.
I've been in the position where I've had very little time and energy for organization. I completely understand the pace of life that we are up against when it comes to our self care. I know that it can be scary to invest money in getting the help you need to realize your goals.
However, a commitment to getting organized really is just that - an investment. An investment that pays off in the future with more space, time, money and energy for the things that matter most; with more joy and less stress. This is in your future if we work together.
The question is, can you really stay stuck in your current situation? If the answer is no, I invite you to sign up for your free consultation and see how I can help you break this cycle!
AS OF AUGUST 2019, I AM ON MATERNITY LEAVE.
The next enrollment period for the 1:1 Intensive will be in early 2020.
