  • How long will my project take?
    In the grand scheme of things, not long at all! After our initial session, I'll provide a more personalized estimate, but typically, it takes about five 5-hour sessions to bring order and tranquility into your life. The timeline hinges on five key factors: Quantity of items. The speed with which you make decisions. Initial level of organization. Whether or not you can be free from distractions during sessions. Whether or not you choose to do tasks in between sessions. Whatever your situation, don’t despair! With my guidance, the journey to a clutter-free home becomes significantly more manageable than tackling it alone. Trust the process, and soon enough, you'll experience the calm, comfortable, and organized home you deserve. We've got this!
  • How long is each session?
    Each session lasts up to five hours, and you can count on me to be fully engaged for the entire duration. Through experience, I've discovered that five hours is a sweet spot where we can achieve significant progress without overwhelming you physically or emotionally. In addition to full-length in-home and virtual sessions, I also offer 1-hour virtual coaching sessions. Whether it's a comprehensive five-hour session or a focused one-hour coaching session, I can be flexible with regard to your changing needs. Want your space organized? We’ll make it happen.
  • What can I do to prepare for my first session?
    First and foremost, take a moment to reflect on why you want to be organized? Envision the feelings you'd like to experience in your newly organized space. Imagine the possibilities that open up when the clutter is replaced by a serene environment, free from the stress of constant tidying. When it comes to preparing your space, there's no need to tidy up before I arrive! Every pile tells a story, and that story will provide me with valuable insights into your habits. These details help me tailor suggestions to your unique needs. If we're following the KonMari Method, consider doing laundry, since it’s very likely we’ll be focusing on organizing your clothing. Beyond that, take care of yourself—eat well, get some rest, and stay hydrated, and I promise to do the same. A well-nourished and rested mind makes the organizing process much smoother. We're in this together, and I'm here to guide you toward a vibrant, clutter-free living space.
  • Do I need to buy any additional storage or organizational items?
    Buying storage in the hope of taming the wild beast of disorganization is a common pitfall that seldom leads to success. Before I suggest anything, we'll utilize the items you already have in your home, which, in most cases, prove to be sufficient. However, if you really don’t have anything that we can work with, it might be a good idea to invest in a small arsenal of modular drawer-organizers and shoebox-sized bins. These sizes are extremely versatile and can be used in the greatest number of contexts throughout the home and office. For recommendations, feel free to check out my Pinterest for items that I find useful. While buying bins without measuring can expedite the process, sometimes this approach comes at the expense of a great fit, since we won’t know what you’re storing or where it’s being stored until after we declutter. For this reason, if you buy containers beforehand, consider purchasing from retailers with generous return policies. At any rate, during the process, if we find that your space can be enhanced with the help of a few tools, or you’re looking for a visual make-over, I will be thrilled to make recommendations.
  • What is the KonMari Method?
    The KonMari Method is a renowned organizing approach developed by Marie Kondo, the author of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. What sets this method apart is its category-based organization—sorting belongings by categories such as clothes, books, papers, etc., instead of tackling one room at a time. This systematic approach ensures a straightforward and efficient experience. By the end of the process, you’ll feel like you have organizing superpowers, as you organize mementos and family photos with ease. At the heart of the KonMari Method is the famous question, 'Does it Spark Joy?' This simple yet powerful criterion becomes your guide in deciding what to keep. While 'Sparking Joy' may initially seem abstract, it's the key to unlocking your full organizing potential. Applying this method results in a highly personalized and well-organized space that you'll genuinely enjoy maintaining. I incorporate the KonMari Method™ whenever possible because of its suitability for most individuals. It's ultrafast, easy to learn, and very, very effective!
  • What if I don't want to discard something?
    Then keep it with confidence! There is absolutely no pressure to discard something that you want to keep. All of the decisions are yours to make, and I’m confident you’re going to make great ones! If at any point you’re feeling lost, I’ll show you the way!
  • Are you going to share any of my information?
    Hiring an organizer can be an intimate affair, therefore I take privacy very seriously. I will never share any personal information without first seeking your consent. Do you have something you don’t want me to see? No problem! Feel free to remove it from the area before we begin. That being said, I will never open drawers, or even handle your belongings, without your permission. Your comfort is my number one priority.
  • Where do you work?
    I work throughout the San Francisco Bay Area at no extra cost, and I provide virtual organizing worldwide. If you are outside of the Bay Area and would like to work together in-person, please get in touch! I will provide you with an estimate which will include any associated travel expenses.
  • What happens if I need to reschedule an appointment?
    Not a problem! However, sessions canceled with less than 24 hours' notice will be billed at 50% of the agreed rate or time scheduled.
  • Which payment methods do you accept?
    I accept cash, check, Venmo, Cash App, and Zelle. Please note that payment is due at the end of each session.
