What I have learned going through people's stuff


When I started as a Professional Organizer 3 years ago, I knew I could help people with their clutter and help them create more efficient, well-run lives.  What I didn’t know was  that I was going to get a unique window into their hopes, worries and inner most thoughts.

I quickly learned that people suffer not only with physical clutter but with internal clutter--beliefs that they “should” do this or “have to” do that. That they live by an unseen set of rules that dictates all kinds of things in their daily lives.  

I cannot tell you how many times we’d start off talking about how their overflowing closets were driving them nuts and end up talking about their self worth and deep feelings of inadequacy.

I learned that no matter what the external mess looked like, that my clients were dealing with the same sort of things. Maybe you can relate to one or more of these things: 

  • dissatisfaction with work and your small businesses

  • lack of passion (remember when you were in college and were so full of FIRE? Passion isn't just for the young!)

  • embarrassment and a feeling of total overwhelm with your surroundings (and therefore a feeling of loneliness and isolation)

  • a sense that you should be doing something with your life...but you're not sure what it is

  • a feeling of just moving through life but not really living it

  • wondering who you really are and how in the hell you ended up where you are today

    That is some heavy shit, my friends, but it's all fixable. And the thing to realize is that we are not meant to do this alone. 

I also came to understand all of the things that I’ve spent the last 30 years of my life studying (in no particular order but all in depth): organizing, clutter, consumerism, mental health, mindfulness, social work, parenting, marketing, the simplicity movement, healthy living, feminism, librarianship, Buddhism, Christianity, self care, space clearing, entrepreneurship, habits, environmentalism, cultural anthropology, cooking, energy work, productivity, saving money/debt reduction, domestic arts, minimalism, Feng Shui and above all, the human condition as we know it, alllllllll come into play when I’m working with clients.

I have a pretty cool tool kit. It wasn’t intentional but it has become invaluable in my work in getting clients unstuck. I take a creative and multi-dimensional approach.

It’s never about the stuff. It’s about what we think about the stuff. How we interact with it, what it means to us and how to shift it around so that it is working for us instead of against us.

This is the platform from which I coach. I can see the patterns of behavior that keep my clients stuck and help them shift into a new perspective that is better aligned with who they really are and where they want to go.

So if any of this is ringing a bell for you, I want to invite you grab a Life Coaching session with me (I work internationally via Skype or Zoom--video calls). This is not a clutter coaching session. I am offering a limited time introductory coaching session for $149 which includes:

  • A 60 minute 1:1 session with me where we will laser focus on what is holding you back from what you really want and get you into action

  • AND you'll get my Master Class:

    "From Stuck to Empowered: How to Attract What You Want and Let Go of the Rest."

You can snag your limited time introductory price coaching mini package here: http://bit.ly/267HTcH

(My new coaching packages will be going up soon and this introductory price will disappear.)

This mini package is for you if you:

  • are tired of feeling like you're on an endless treadmill of sameness

  • feel disconnected from yourself

  • need to unscramble a problem in your life

  • want to make some changes but don't know where to begin

  • are stuck in overwhelm and are ready for some change

  • feel like life is slipping by and you're not where you want to be

Giddy up, my friends. If you are in this to get some sparks back in your life then sign up here http://bit.ly/267HTcH


PS Know that you'd love to have a coach in your corner (ME) but know that one session is not going to be enough support? You can hit reply to this email and I'll be glad to share some other options with you. 

PSS I’m so passionate about all of these things that I’ve decided to write a book about how all of these things work together. I am crazy excited about it!!
