Frequently Asked Questions

In order to experience long-lasting, life-changing results, you will need to learn new organizational systems.  I will teach you how to institute simple systems to enable you to maintain your new space. 

As a consultant, I will ask questions, make observations and suggestions to help you decide what is or is not important to you. Ultimately, you, the client, are the final decision-maker.

Absolutely. All meetings, conversations, and questions are between you and I, and no one else. As a professional organizer, my job is to help you make your space exactly how you want. There is never any judgement and nothing to be ashamed of. You are reclaiming your space and you get to feel good about that every step of the way.

It’s entirely up to you. If you don’t want to touch a thing, you don’t have to. But, if you or anyone else wants to help, it’ll get the job done faster, and in the end, save you money.

There are three types of disorganization – situational, chronic, and hoarding.

I specialize in situational challenges (often caused by life transitions such as moving, downsizing, marriage, or divorce, new baby, loss of loved one, or changes in physical or mental abilities) and also assist with chronic (life-long) disorganization.

Though the term “hoarding” is tossed around colloquially thanks to reality TV, true hoarding stems from a specific psychological disorder. Both situational and chronic disorganization can be extreme without being a hoarding situation.

If it is truly a hoarding situation I will only be able to offer help in conjunction with an existing professional therapist relationship to address the underlying psychological issues.

 
1. An assessment of your area(s) of concern

There is no set answer as each organizing project is different. The length of a project will depend primarily on the size of your home or office, the amount of clutter and/or paper that has accumulated and how QUICKLY you can make decisions.

I come and evaluate the space(s) as-is and formulate a plan of action. Then, we will discuss what problems you have with the space(s), what you would like to see change, and what is currently working for you. I will also give a list of helpful things to have done before we start the session.

Only if you want to! I am happy to work on projects of any size. I can come in for a large “home makeover” project, but we can also tackle your spaces room by room.

I don’t require any specific preparation before a session, but there are often things that can be done ahead of time to help the process go smoother and faster. This will be covered during the consultation.

There is a minimum of 4 hours for each project. If we finish the space quickly we can address another small space to fill the remaining time. 

 
Cancellation of a scheduled appointment with less than 48 hours’ notice, will be billed at 25% of the agreed-upon rate of time scheduled.

I accept cash, electronic money transfer (EMT), and credit cards.

I actively listen to my clients goals and try hard to understand their needs. A lot of planning and preparation goes into each organizing job so unfortunately, all fees are non-refundable. However, if you’re not satisfied with the work, I’ll do my best to try and resolve the issue.
