I love what I do and cannot imagine doing anything else. I find helping people work through their organizing “issues” and working together with them on projects so rewarding on many different levels. I love watching their faces lighten up as we lighten their physical load. Watching them breath a little easier as we make spaces functional. It can be a very hard thing for people to work through years of stuff, or trouble areas in their homes or office…and so gratifying to be a part of the transition. I appreciate how personal it can be, and the level of trust it can take. Organizing IS personal, as no two people relate to their items and their time the same way.
I think it is important to bring humor and acceptance into each session. “Aha” moments, and when a client says, “you would be so proud of me, look what I did!,” make the challenges all the more exciting. Watching people grow, learn, explore and discover, and then helping them apply these things to their organizing is what it is all about for me. Transformation and possibilities… I love it.
Looking forward to helping you find your Clear Surroundings!
