I have ADHD, and a lot of what I have seen and read about organizing just doesn’t work for me. Can you help me?
I can! In fact, I particularly enjoy working with people who have ADHD and other brain-based conditions.
Everyone’s brain works differently, and I love helping people figure out what engages theirs the most so they can accomplish what they want and need to do. We will work at a pace that feels right for you.
Do I need to be present during organizing sessions?
Definitely. I believe clients need to partner with me in the organizing process in order to get the best possible results for them.
Working together allows me to ask questions and tailor my recommendations to your specific needs. Participating in the process also provides you with opportunities to ask clarifying questions and practice using the strategies I suggest, which helps you maintain the system/s we have put in place.
Shouldn’t I be able to do this without help?
People have different abilities, strengths, and interests. Similar to hiring a personal trainer to help you get into better physical shape, people hire professional organizers to get better results faster.
I draw on years of experience with a variety of clients to offer solutions that make sense to you, to teach you new skills, and to support you as you learn these new behaviors.
How long will it take?
It depends on the scope of your project, the pace at which you prefer to work, and the amount of work you are able to complete between our sessions.
What are your hours?
I’m available Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
What is your fee structure?
I charge on an hourly basis with payment due at the time of service. Sessions are typically 3 to 4 hours in length, though this is determined on a case-by-case basis with sensitivity to cognitive, emotional, and physical considerations.
Will you make me get rid of possessions like I’ve seen on TV?
Absolutely not! Nope. No. It’s totally up to you to decide whether an item will stay or be let go.
My role is to help you meet your goals for the functionality and appearance of your space. I will challenge you as needed so you’re making decisions that are consistent with your goals, but I will never force you to part with something. I promise.
What happens to the items I decide to let go?
Sometimes things no longer serve a purpose for you, but can still be put to good use elsewhere. I understand that knowing where an item is going sometimes makes the decisions easier. I will work with you to find the best options for donating, recycling, or re-selling items you no longer want or need.
What is the hardest part of the process?
Getting started. Procrastination can drain our energy, making it hard to motivate. Taking just one step is progress.
Do you work with clients virtually?
In some cases, virtual services can replace in-person services. We can discuss this option further to see if it is right for you and your project.
What are the steps for starting to work together?
The first step is to complete the contact form on this website. I will contact you within 24 hours, and we will set up a call so we can ask each other a few questions. Next, I will meet with you for a free 30-minute consultation in the space where you’d like my help so I can get a better understanding of your project. If at the completion of that visit, we mutually agree my services will be of value to you, we can begin working together.
