There are two types of structure people need: internal and external. In counseling we work on internal structure but sometimes people need a little more. Sometimes people need help with external structure to feel at peace. The reasons why we keep things and get rid of things are psychological in nature -- who better to help you with this task then a professional counselor.
My goal in organization is for you to have mental and physical space to live you life in an intentional manner. We will work together to surround yourself with things you love in an organizational system that makes sense for you and your family. Together, we will organize utilizing things you already own. No space is too large or too small.
1. What to expect?
The first step is for me to come by your home or business and to "estimate" the type and extent of your organizational needs. This is free - feel no obligation at this point. During this "Estimate" I'll identify how long it should take and how intense it will be. Next, we will create a plan. this plan will be your vision for what you would like for the space. After that, we will work TOGETHER to decrease clutter, to find what is IMPORTANT to you, and to make intentional "homes" for everything that is IMPORTANT. It is CRUCIAL to note -- we will not create ORGANIZATIONAL systems to organize 'all of your stuff' but rather decrease clutter to utilize the organizational space your home naturally offers. You will love the PSYCHOLOGICAL space that creating physical space creates.
THIS TYPE OF ORGANIZATIONAL PROJECT IS BEST DONE IN A BIG CHUNK. IN YOUR INITIAL "ESTIMATE" WE CAN IDENTIFY ToGeThER HOW MUCH TIME NEEDS TO BE DEDICATED TO your PROJECT. FOR "SMALL SPACES" I RECOMMEND AT LEAST AN UNINTERRUPTED DAY. FOR "LARGE SPACES" I RECOMMEND AT LEAST AN UNINTERRUPTED WEEKEND OR LONG WEEKEND. FOR A HOUSEHOLD ORGANIZATIONAL EVENT, I RECOMMEND AT LEAST AN UNINTERRUPTED WEEK OR TIME OR MORE DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS AND THE AMOUNT OF CLUTTER.
2. How it works?
Like anything, ORGANIZATION is a process. Together, we will make a plan. TOGETHER, we will divide clutter to tackle it. You are the only person that can identify what is clutter and what is important. I will never make that determination for you -- This is why you must be an active participant in this process. Some of this "decluttering" will be done together and some will be homework for you to do. After we have freed your space from the clutter we can create an organizational system that is custom for your space and your lifestyle.
