A little fun fact: some of my clients share their kudos by calling me names to my face. A few notable favorites include “mistress of efficiency,” “our lady of the gentle whip,” “the eradicator,” “space therapist,” and “the light at the end of the tunnel.”
Outside of her services being so useful she has a warm, calming, joyous presence that makes the time together a real pleasure. I cannot believe I waited so long to hire someone to help me cull through my house and get organized, it was such a good use of time and money and one of the most satisfying things I've ever done for my family.
We worked on sorting and organizing almost every room in my house. Deb made everything feel doable, and we actually had a lot of fun in the process. I was shocked at how much I could get through in an hour when we were together. I never felt judged for the state of my house or the decisions I made to keep or get rid of anything. Deb has a gift for breaking things down so that tasks I had anticipated with dread and had procrastinated on for so long all of a sudden seemed so simple and doable.
I moved shortly after we finished our work together and I reaped the benefits of the systems we set up and the junk we got rid of during packing, unpacking and getting our new place set up. The largest value in her service was how she taught me to think about how I use space so that I am more capable of setting up useful systems in my house now and able to maintain the organization after the initial set up.
After trying to achieve greater order in my home environment with limited success on my own, I found that working with Deb led to rapid progress and a great outcome. She has a gentle yet firm way of facilitating the organizing process. She is professional, encouraging, respectful, and effective. Not only is my home organized, but my overall daily experience is organized, too.
On the phone consultation, Deb was compassionate in listening to our concerns, and clearly explained her approach to organization and her aim to empower clients to take control. In person, she proved to be warm, receptive, and flexible. She toured our home thoroughly and respectfully, asking about what worked and what didn’t, and made immediate suggestions to help us move towards our goals.
Deb is enthusiastic about her work, provides simple solutions to complex problems, and is adaptive to your needs. She is highly attuned to the anxieties of disorganization, and she is incredibly helpful in relieving them.
We met with her several times to reorganize our kitchen, which has since inspired us to progress to the rest of the house. We will always keep Deb in mind when we’re in need of a tune-up. Her teachings will persist in our home for a long time.
After we got back, I took a deep breath and asked Deb to come over. I’ve known Deb for over 20 years and was reluctant to ask her to help me. (We’re friends but, ew! She doesn’t need to know my secret hoard-y quirks!)
In the course of one day, we got my kitchen so ship-shape that everyone can find what they need every time! Interestingly, we are wasting less food and--dare I say it?--eating healthier because I can picture each organized cabinet and exactly what we have!
Call her! You’ll have fun, and be happier and healthier afterwards.
I had no idea organizing could be such fun!
The great thing about her is that she not only helped me immensely with the actual sorting and cleaning out of the space, but also she helped me prepare mentally for the work beforehand. Thinking about the task often became overwhelming, and she was there to listen and offer guidance.
Deb helped me create an action plan that we were able to execute in the five days allotted for this project. She was supportive and objective and always able to offer pros and cons for me to consider when the emotional weight of giving things up was great.
Deb's assistance was invaluable. I would recommend her highly to anyone that needs help getting organized!
Deb has that affect on people. She's passionate about her work. She has a tender empathy that few personal life coaches have. She cares about people and wants to make a contribution to our planet one person, one project at a time.
