What is a professional organizer?
A professional organizer is an individual who has knowledge in organizing spaces and creating systems that are practical for daily life. A professional organizer will work to understand the struggles that a client is having around their organization (whether it be in a home, school, or office), and coach the client through creating and maintaining a calm and functional space.
Why should I hire a professional organizer?
Have you struggled with organization for quite some time? Has a recent situation (i.e. a move, new baby, divorce, etc.), made it difficult for you to stay organized? Have you tried getting organized before to no avail?
These are all common struggles that many of us are facing. A professional organizer is a coach, a cheerleader, and teacher that will help you to see the light at the end of the clutter tunnel by transferring organizational methods and skills to their clients.
I'm not ready to get rid of my things!
While I may recommend purging items that are not serving a purpose in your life right now, I will never ask a client to part with anything they are not ready to. It is your space and your belongings. You are in total control of what stays and goes! I am here to help guide and coach you to a more functional space, whatever that may mean to you.
I'd like help but I'm embarrassed by my space.
I'd be a very rich lady if I had a nickel for every time a client said this to me! I always like to remind my clients that I am here to help you, not judge you. Your home is the most intimate and vulnerable place you spend your time, and it is absolutely normal to have these feelings before a new person enters it. I do not walk into a home or space and see it the same way that you might. I see potential and immediately begin thinking of ways to organize.
