Flexible to meet your needs.
You can request a one-time session to get you going, schedule sessions one at a time at any interval, or reserve multiple sessions ahead of time, depending on what works best for you and your project.
Usually, 3- to 4-hour sessions are the most productive, but there are exceptions. Some people can power through for a longer period of time, and some need a break after a couple hours. I work primarily weekday mornings and afternoons, but have some evening and Saturday appointments available, too.
Every project starts with the same process. The first thing we'll do together is identify your goals, prioritize them, and plan specific steps to get 'er done.
What you're aiming for will determine how we work together and what you need me to focus on. It's a matter of how you want to both get organized and stay organized.
No matter which partnership option you prefer, you will always be the one to decide what stays, what goes, what moves, and what doesn't. It's YOUR stuff! As we strategize, do keep in mind that I will do light lifting of boxes, furniture, etc, but heavy items will require an extra set of muscles.
If your goal is to both get organized and learn how to organize at the same time, this is the partnership option for you. I'll focus on teaching you as we work side by side, coaching you every step of the way, so you acquire and practice the skills needed to tackle new projects on your own and to maintain what we achieve together.
Get Me Started
If your goal is to do most of the project and maintenance work yourself, but you need help getting over some stumbling blocks, this is the option for you. I'll focus on helping you problem-solve whatever is in the way of getting started, getting over a hump, or making a needed adjustment. Once you can see the way ahead on your own, I'm outta there!
Customize It My Way
If your goal is organized space, but you want me to take on more of the hands-on organizing load, let's talk about a cutomized approach for you. No matter how much you want me to do, you'll still be involved in setting your goals, identifying the barriers and the available resources, and making all final decisions about your own stuff.
How Much Time?
Every organizing situation is unique, and that's why sessions are individualized for you.
My goal is to facilitate organizing sessions that match your specific needs and your preferred work style in the most efficient way possible. That includes following your lead to find your "just right" pace and helping you make decisions as quickly as possible.
Factors that affect the pace of any project include:
the amount of stuff that we need to go through
the ease or difficulty of making decisions about items
the ability or inability to complete tasks between sessions
the ease or difficulty of staying focused during work sessions
extra tasks you want to address, such as inventorying items, preparing items for re-sale or donation, etc.
If you have a small project, such as a pantry or closet, or just want some trouble-shooting help and instruction on how to go about organizing yourself, one session may be all it takes.
If you want help to get through a medium-sized project, like a master bedroom, closet, and bath, you're probably looking at a few sessions, depending on all those factors above.
If you have a big project like preparing to down-size, it's going to take more time, naturally. You might need help over several months in little chunks, or you might need help to get it done quickly with a concentrated amount of time.
If you still have questions, check out the FAQs or call me and we'll talk about your specific project.
