How The Process Works
Working together is a simple process where I come to you, hold your hand along the way, and help you create the kind of organization and redesign of your space that gives you your sanity back. In our time together I’ll walk you through how we’re going to take back your space so you can relax and enjoy yourself again.
We both know that putting all your things in cute containers doesn’t solve a single problem you’re facing. So, inspired by the Marie Kondo Method, I help you eliminate all of your unnecessary stuff, and the clutter it creates.
We’re going work together to make your home joyful again - transforming your space into something that makes you genuinely happy, every day. Once you live in a joyful space, you don’t go back to a cluttered life - which leaves you free to do the things you really want to do.
"I did not realize when we began that my entire room would become a sweet little dressing room rather than a junk room/office... This has lead to new habits of clearing off my surfaces, putting my clothes away at night, laying out my clothes, and getting enough rest - things I just never cared about because my space (physical and psychic) was so cluttered." -- dk haas, San Francisco
Here’s how we’ll begin
The process is super straightforward. First we'll have a 20 minute "hope and relief" phone call. Next you'll prepay and book your Initial New Client Session. And then we'll start getting your space in order.
The "hope and relief" phone call.
When you email me to set up a free initial “see what you need” phone call, we’ll get on the phone for about 20 minutes so you can fill me in on where things are in your space.
Generally, at the end of this call, I’ll have some specific advice for how to begin making the overwhelm disappear right away. We’ll get you breathing easier.
(Clients have called these the “relief and hope” calls.) If you need some of that relief and hope right now, contact me immediately. :)
Initial New Client Session.
At the end of your free phone consultation, pay and book you Initial New Client Session.
(Between the call and our session, I’ll send you an email with a few simple questions that will help us prep for getting the most out of our time together - unless adding one more thing on your to-do list would send you over the edge.)
The Initial New Client Session is one 5 hour session, beginning at 10am and ending at 3:00pm with a quick break for lunch.
During this session we'll look at your space, find out what's most important to getting you organized first, and get a sense of what changes will make you feel more joyful right from the start. Then we'll dive right in to getting you organized and creating more joyful space in your life.
At the end of the session, we'll look at where you are, where you want to be, and form a game plan for taking back your space. I'll create a simple action plan for you so you won't feel overwhelmed, and then we'll decided the best way to execute that game plan.
By the end of your Initial New Client Session, your overwhelm will be gone, and you'll know your exact next steps so you can feel in charge of your space again. If this sounds good to you, contact me to schedule your FREE phone consultation now.
After the first session.
At the end of our first session, we’ll decide on what follow up package would work best for you and your organizing project.
Depending on the size of your organizational project, you can choose a single follow up session, or a package of 2, 3, or 4 sessions.
Like the Initial New Client Session, all follow up sessions are five hours long - beginning at 10am, and ending at 3:00pm.
The number of sessions you need will depend on the magnitude of the project you're tackling. Of course, every individual project is unique, and everyone make decisions about their possessions at different speeds - so what takes one person one session may take another person two or three. Because of this, at the end of your Initial New Client Session, we'll talk about how we want to move forward, and what package will fit best for you. I'll give you suggestions based on my professional opinion, and how quickly we moved through things in the first session - but of course the decision is ultimately up to you.
As a general ball park I recommend:
1/2 to 1 Session: a closet / a dresser / a bathroom / a set of bookshelves.
1 to 2 Sessions: the average room (not including closets) / full closets / full dressers.
2 to 3 Sessions: the average room (including closets) / particularly large or full rooms / kitchen + pantry.
3 to 4 Sessions: jam packed rooms / home offices / garages / basements / attics.
More than 4 Sessions: multiple rooms / pack rat status rooms / whole apartments / whole houses.
However large your organizational project, and no matter the package you choose, you’ll get the support you need to get your organizing done in a way that’s drama-free and – dare we say it – enjoyable. (Yes, it can happen.)
