Getting organized is not just cleaning up. It’s dealing with the causes of why the clutter collected in the first place and finding solutions to prevent the chaos from returning.
One size does not fit all! We’ll find simple, easy-to-implement solutions that suit your personality, lifestyle, and goals.
Do you own your possessions or do they own you?
Consider the cost of real estate on the West Coast. Is your clutter worth the price per square foot you’re paying to store it?
I’ll help you decide what to keep and what is no longer serving you, custom-organize the space and things you use and love in ways that are convenient for you, and create storage solutions for your treasures.
You need to be able to accomplish your chores efficiently, and participate in your hobbies easily. You deserve to have full use and enjoyment of the space you’ve paid for.
Whether your “black hole” is the basement, bedroom, garage, kitchen, or closets, we can work together to declutter, clear out the mess and the stress, and restore order, calm and harmony in your home.

All legal aspects must of course be handled by your lawyers.
