What I Offer

In-Person  Services range from downsizing projects to pre-move meditations on minimalist trajectories, to simple closet organizing, to creating a zero waste home. When it comes to living with less to get more out of life, I am your personal guide.

Each session is tailored to an individual's needs. This is not a one-size-fits-all enterprise. Solutions are developed to suit your personality type and specific goals. I focus on establishing systems that allow maintenance of your post-project life to be easy and effective.

Along the way, I provide project management: reviewing our objectives at the beginning of each session, taking notes throughout, reviewing what we've accomplished at the end, and enumerating our next "to do's." In between sessions, we stay in touch. I answer any questions that arise and we share information as needed. I will be your accountability partner, keeping you honest with respect to your goals and keeping us moving toward them efficiently.

The investment is $75 per hour for work conducted in person. Payment occurs at the end of the session via cash, check or Paypal.

Organizing/Minimalist Consulting

Sometimes you only need a light touch from a professional organizer for targeted inspiration, project management, and specific organizing advice. Maybe between dropping off the kids and running to an appointment it's hard to open your home to an organizing professional for blocks of time. Or maybe you and I don’t live in the same area and you are looking for a way that we can work together. This online service package is a great way to begin an organizing project and to stay on track.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Send any photos of the particular area/s of your home space needing attention in our work along with answers to the questionnaire that will be sent to you.
  2. Through a 90 minute phone consultation, we will discuss your project needs, potential challenges, and solid strategies.
  3. As your accountability partner, I will follow up with a project plan, including homework assignments, goals, and due dates.
  4. We will have three more 60 minute calls so we can continue working through the plan together, along with check in emails to ensure we remain on track.

Total investment $475 (for up to a 4 month period)
(50% due at sign up, second half due at first call. Non-refundable.)

How to Get Started  To determine if this process is a good fit and to define your goals, we first have an initial 1/2 hour introductory meeting (at no cost). This can be conducted over the phone or in-person. If you decide to move forward with a project, we schedule a session (minimum 3 hours). You are not locked in to multiple sessions.
