I work with you to clear out the clutter so you can live your best life.
I help people finally get rid of the stuff that weighs them down. Using common sense and informed by the principles of feng shui, I provide the guidance and accountability you need to take back your freedom and keep your possessions from ruling your life.
My goal is to help you change your habits around clutter and disorganization. I believe that if I help you clean out a closet you will feel better for a week, but if I help you change your relationship to your stuff you will be able to permanently keep your home clutter-free.
This is a collaborative process; I can’t do it for you. Together we’ll go through your house determining which items are serving you and which you’re ready to let go of. I’ll take away anything that fits in my car! And I’ll give you a guide that lists resources for donating, recycling and consigning the stuff you get rid of on your own.
The way a home is organized depends on the people who live in it; there is no one size fits all. Together we'll analyze how you use your space and organize it in the way that makes most sense for you.
I consider myself a coach, rather than an organizer. I want to help you recognize what gets in the way of having a functional home, and work with you to overcome those obstacles.

Some parts of your home are probably fairly easy for you to keep organized. Others, not so much. Here are some of the things I particularly like to work on:
Children aren't usually great at managing their clutter, but I find that with guidance they are willing to let a lot of it go. I'm a parent, and I know that when parents try to get their own kids to clean up, power struggles often ensue. I'll spend time with your child going through bedroom and playroom, culling the things he or she has outgrown, organizing the rest. Kids really do like a tidy, clutter-free space!
art studios/craft rooms
I am a working artist, and have had studios as large as 800 square feet and as small as 80 square feet. I know how art supplies and projects can take over the world and are hard to wrangle. I can help you think about which items need to be immediately available and which can be tucked away for later use. We'll declutter first, then work on the best organizational system for your particular needs.
Going through possessions left to us by loved ones is an emotional journey. It's hard to let go of the things that were touched by our parents, partners and friends. I will help you determine which items will fit into your life and become a tribute to your loved one. We'll find good homes for the things that you no longer need.
As the heart of the house, the kitchen attracts clutter of every conceivable kind. Often the storage we have isn't used in the most effective way. Reorganizing cupboards and closets can help make your tasks in the kitchen more efficient. But first - decluttering! This room is often filled with food and gadgets that are never used. We'll also look at the things that end up in the kitchen but really belong somewhere else.
